[UPDATE (August 2012) – New Adobe Contribute 6.5 is out! Read more here.]

Simplify website management.

Adobe® Contribute® CS5 enables users to quickly create and edit web pages collaboratively in an easy-to-use WYSIWYG HTML editor, without writing code. New features include native XML file editing, image hotspot definition, cross-browser preview and compare, Spry widget editing, Server Side Includes (SSI) file editing, and advanced search and replace. Its in-browser editing environment gives content authors the capability to drag and drop FLV, SWF, and PDF files directly into pages, as well as advanced text- and image-editing tools. Managers can encour­age creative web development while easily controlling workflow, review and version processes to produce static or dynamic websites with one-click publishing.


Top 13 reasons to upgrade to Adobe Contribute CS5

Get Contribute CS5 Now

  • 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.
  • XML file editing – 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.
  • Cross-browser preview – 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.
  • Spry widget editing – Edit any content contained in a variety of Spry widgets, including data within accordion, tabbed, and collaps­ible panels. Change properties such as panel transition animation effects.
  • Collaborative publishing – Establish collaborative workflow processes to author, review, and publish content. Define different review paths, whether a single approval for an internal page or multiple sign-offs for a public page. Enable multiple reviewers to comment on drafts simultaneously with in-context tools for faster and more effective web publishing cycles.
  • Multiple page search and replace – Use the enhanced search and replace capability to update information on multiple open draft pages. Streamline the update process by performing in minutes a previously tedious task.
  • Subversion support – Roll back pages to previously archived files using the built-in Contribute rollback feature or Subversion, which is supported by Contribute CS5.
  • 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.
  • Image hotspot support – Create multiple links to different parts of a single image with integrated WYSIWYG hotspot support. Draw one or more hotspots onto any image, and then add alternative text and URLs for immediate interactivity.
  • SWF or FLV file embedding – Insert SWF or FLV files, and Contribute creates web standards-compliant code, compatible with that created in Adobe Dreamweaver® software. This helps ensure that content is Adobe Flash® Player compatible while enabling drag-and- drop authoring in Contribute.
  • Server Side Includes file editing – Allow authors to edit Server Side Includes (SSI) files. Authors can choose SSI files from a list, without needing to know the file path. Modify HTML content in the SSI file with Contribute.
  • Text and image enhancements – Create superscript and subscript text directly in Contribute. Rescale, rotate, crop, and sharpen images, and adjust their brightness and contrast. Changes are displayed accurately with enhanced CSS rendering.
  • Publish to websites and blogs – Publish with a single click to a wide variety of websites or blogs. Contribute is the one web authoring tool that supports FTP, SFTP, WebDAV, Meta­Weblog, and Atom protocols.
