Contribute is an easy to use content editing application, that you purchase from Adobe and install on your computer not unlike Word, Paint Shop Pro, or other applications. You must purchase the application, download the installer and double click the installer to install the application.
Once the application is installed on your computer, you can launch it, and begin to peruse the application and learn how to use it with the tutorial.
The most recently released version is Contribute CS5 and it costs $199 per license. You are responsible for purchasing, installing, and learning to use the application on an appropriate computer at your place of business.
You can click on the animated banner above, or on the link below, and purchase the application.
Please verify your IP address from the location where you will be installing Contribute (your home office, your corporate office, etc).
Visit the website link above, copy the information you see on the screen, and email the information to our support department. You must report your IP information for each computer you plan on using to edit your site ...
Please also include whether your IP address is Static or Dynamic. You can ask your local IT person or contact your Internet Service Provider to find out this information.
One hour of training on how to use Contribute to update your website is included with the install price. Additional training, consultation, phone calls, etc, is billable at our standard rates by the hour.
For PRODUCT-related support (installation problems, download problems, etc), you will need to contact Adobe for assistance. Adobe provides a support area where you can search their knowledge base.
Adobe also offers online support bulletin boards where people exchange information, and where Adobe staff members monitor questions.
