Chapter 9. Working with External Documents > Editing Other Document Types

Editing Other Document Types

To modify any content on your Web site other than an HTML file, you need to edit that content in the application in which it was created. For example, if you have an image file on your site, you need to use an image editing application to modify it. But you have to use Contribute to begin the editing process so that Contribute keeps proper track of the edited copy of the file on your site. By using Contribute to manage the editing process, you can take advantage of Contribute’s special features, such as rollbacks, which let you revert to a previous version of any published page or document. See Chapter 3, “Building Web Pages,” for more information on rollbacks.

In order to edit a document, such as an image, in an external application, Contribute must know which application you want to use to edit a given file type. Contribute comes with a list of preset file types, as shown in Table 9.1, but you can add additional editing applications for each file type. You’ll need to designate one application as the primary editing application for that file type.
