    How do you add new user?

    Lyn_R.
      I set up a web site Using DW 8 and want my client to be able to update it using Contribute. I have Contribute 3 and have set it up with me as administrator and want to add a new user under Publisher, but there is no button to click to add a new user. (The Help file shows one but it's not in the "Administer Website" box, just the role settings.)

      I use a Mac with OS X 10.4

          I have exactly the same problem. Where is the "Add User" button described in all the help references? i've set up many test users before, just can't figure out how I did it!!!?? (Using WinXP, Contribute 3 and 4)

          Anyone know what we're talking about?

            More... at first I didn't see the posts on this topic in the general discussion forum, but looking again, there are a number.
            (Search on "Contribute 3 add user" for one of the posts. Others posts nearby.)

            It seems that one must send a connection key in order to add users in Contribute 3. A change, apparently, from v2. The Add User button only appears if you are using publishing server... or so it seems from the posts.

              Hi ,

              The add user button is enabled in case you have adminstered the site with
              CPS.

              To add other users without CPS , you can adminster the site and then send
              out connection keys to the user with specific roles assigned.

              Do this by:

              Edit-> Administer Websites -> SITENAME

              In adminstration dialog that follows, do :

              Select either Admistrator, Publisher .... role and click on Send Connection
              Keys.

              Complete the process and send the key accross to the user.

              Hope this helped.
