Web sites frequently require updates, but the people who create content don't necessarily have the experience or permission required to edit the HTML files on the server. Contribute offers a user-friendly interface for making changes without involving a web developer or an elaborate content management system. In Contribute CS4 Essential Training, Garrick Chow shows how a site administrator can create and assign roles, determining what users can edit and whether they can publish the changes. He explains how Contribute can be used for collaborative workflows, in which multiple contributors edit and review changes before publishing them, and simple version management, with the ability to roll back changes to a previous state if something goes wrong. The course covers everything developers, administrators, and contributors need to know to get the most from this unique tool.
