I have a project coming up where Contribute seems like the
ideal solution for the customer end, but they want me to act as
publisher and administrator. I've played around with Contribute in
the past, but I would prefer to be able to do my publishing through
Dreamweaver. However, all I can seem to find are articles telling
me how to administrate through Dreamweaver. Can anyone tell me if
it's even possible to publish and, if so, how?
If someone else was using Contribute on a site, but you
wanted to make a change via Dreamweaver, you would have to download
the page from the server via FTP, modify it in Dreamweaver, and
then reupload it to the server.
However, there are problems with this technique as whilst you
are working in Dreamweaver on the file on your local computer, the
other person might use Contribute to modify that file on the
It would be easier if you got yourself a copy of Contribute
and used it too. It's not that different from Dreamweaver.
