I have a page on my computer that I want to publish to my website but there doesn't seem to be a publish button
What buttons do you see? Which version of Contribute are you using and is it on a Mac or Windows computer?
I don't know if this is the issue, but on my version of Contribute (CS5 on Windows 7), the "Publish" button won't appear unless I have been editing the web page.
Can you please share the screen shot of the toolbar?
