What is Contribute?
Adobe Contribute CS5 software is a powerful web publishing and website management tool that integrates authoring, reviewing, and publishing in an easy-to-use WYSIWYG HTML editor. Increase web publishing productivity collaboratively while simplifying oversight and approval tasks.
Predefined content types
Create content types based on design templates, and review new pages or publish them directly.
Edit site-associated XML files natively, without opening an XML editor.
Preview drafts in any browser. Windows users can compare three browser previews side by side.
Simplify website management
Quickly create and edit web pages collaboratively in an easy-to-use WYSIWYG HTML editor, without writing code. Adobe Contribute CS5 software enables in-browser editing of text, images, and CSS for content authors, as well as drag-and-drop input of FLV, SWF, and PDF files. Managers can encourage creative web development while easily controlling workflow, review, and version processes to produce static or dynamic websites with one-click publishing.
New and enhanced features in Adobe Contribute CS5
Predefined content types Create new pages quickly based on existing design templates and page functionality. Set the workflow to hold new pages for review or to have them go live instantly. Set automatic expiration dates for new content.
XML file editing Edit XML content natively, without having to leave Contribute and open an XML editor. Easily update Spry data sets and other pages that render content from dynamic XML-based sites by editing the corresponding XML file.
Cross-browser preview Verify the look and feel of updated pages in multiple browsers on Windows. Preview edited pages in any installed browser. Windows users can view three browsers simultaneously with synchronous navigation and crawling for side-by-side comparison.
Spry widget editing Edit any content contained in a variety of Spry widgets, including data within accordion, tabbed, and collapsible panels. Change properties such as panel transition animation effects.
Multiple page search and replace Use the enhanced search and replace capability to update information on multiple open draft pages. Streamline the update process by performing in minutes a previously tedious task.
Subversion software support Roll back pages to previously archived files using the built-in Contribute rollback feature or Subversion, which is supported by Contribute CS5. (Subversion is not included with Contribute CS5; visit http://subversion.tigris.org for more information.)
Image hotspot support Create multiple links to different parts of a single image with integrated WYSIWYG hotspot support. Draw one or more hotspots onto any image, and then add alternate text and URLs for immediate interactivity.
SWF and FLV file embedding Insert SWF or FLV files and Contribute creates web standards– compliant code, compatible with code created in Adobe Dreamweaver CS5 software. This helps ensure that content is Adobe Flash Player compatible while enabling drag-and-drop authoring in Contribute.
Server Side Includes file editing Allow authors to edit Server Side Includes (SSI) files. Authors can choose SSI files from a list, without needing to know the file path. Modify HTML content in the SSI file with Contribute.
Other top features in Adobe Contribute CS5

Rich media support Easily drag and drop images, FLV and SWF files, or PDF documents into your web pages. Contribute automatically uploads the dependent files to the web server when the pages are published in predefined locations.
