Denying Public Access to Smarty Templates?

P: n/a
Is there any way to deny public access to the smarty TPL files?
I checked my site and currently anyone can enter view the source of
the TPL files by just surfing there.
When I'm trying to change privileges the smarty system stops working

I've been told the templates can possibly be moved to a directory not
in www, is it possible?

Thank you

There's an umber of ways you can go about doing this:

1. Add an .htaccess file that denies access to *.tpl files.

2. Move the template files outside of the web root, which is the folder
that gets displayed when you browse to http://www.example.com/
