Collaboratively author, review, and publish content without learning HTML. Adobe® Contribute® CS5 software gives writers, editors, and content experts the freedom to update their own web pages.
True WYSIWYG web authoring
Enable content authors to see the results of their edits and additions instantly with enhanced CSS rendering, without writing code or knowing HTML. Contribute immediately updates edits to XML content and Spry widgets.
Simultaneous shared reviews
Enable multiple reviewers to comment on drafts with in-context collaboration tools for faster and more effective web publishing cycles.
Establish collaborative workflow processes to author, review, and publish content. Define different review paths at the template level, whether a single approval for an internal web page or multiple sign-offs for a public page.
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.
Edit site-associated 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.
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.
Dynamic website editing
Add content to dynamic websites powered by Movable Type, TypePad, or WordPress. Simply define the Contribute connection with the proper settings, and site content is instantly available for updating.
Verify the look and feel of updated pages in multiple browsers. Preview edited pages in any installed browser. Windows® users can view three browsers simultaneously with synchronous navigation and crawling for side-by-side comparison.
Website and blog publishing
Publish with a single click to a wide variety of websites or blogs. Contribute is the one web authoring tool that supports FTP, SFTP,FTPS (Implicit and Explicit), WebDAV, MetaWeblog, and Atom protocols.
Allow authors to edit pages directly in a web browser with no need to open another application. The Contribute CS5 in-browser editor supports most browsers, including Firefox 3–3.6 for Windows and Mac OS and Internet Explorer 7 and 8.
