So I'm the Contribute administrator at our organisation. I've just come back off my holidays and one of the users has come to me with problems.
Turns out he has installed the new trial version of Contribute 6.5. He thought he had lost all of his edits to his pages, but after some digging, I found them in the folder they will live in eventually, not the mmwip folder as expected.
He sent them to me for publish, but since I only have 5.5 (as have the rest of the users here, since I didn't even know a new version had been released), I can't publish them and can only view them.
Please advise. Is there backwards compatibility for the new Contribute version and if so, how do I use it?
I believe the administrator needs to have the highest version.
You've got Transition Mode selected in Compatibility I assume? If not, give that a shot but I think that is intended for the administrator to use if they have a newer version, not one of the users.
Thanks for replying. I'll have to speak to the software team about an upgrade, but that doesn't stop other folk from downloading the new version.
And there was me thinking I'd looked through every menu. Where do I find the Compatibility command?
Try the steps at the below mentioned link to change the compatibility mode:-
