Chapter 13. Customizing Contribute's Help System

Chapter 13. Customizing Contribute's Help System

If you've been a user of Macromedia developer tools for any length of time, you have a surprise waiting for you the first time you open a boxed version of Macromedia Contribute. Aside from the CD-ROM, the only other item in the box is a six-panel, fold-out Quick Start Guide. Unlike other developer-based products (such as Macromedia Dreamweaver or Macromedia Flash), Contribute doesn't come with a hefty user's manual. All the help content—and it's quite extensive—is stored electronically and is accessible through Contribute's menus and interface.

What's particularly interesting from an organizational perspective about Contribute's help system is the fact that certain aspects of it are customizable. The more intricately companies incorporate Contribute into their workflow, the more likely they are to want to personalize it to some degree. The drive to customize Contribute is even more compelling for companies investing in the Macromedia Web Publishing System, which includes Contribute 3, FlashPaper 2, Studio MX 2004, and Contribute Publishing Services. Every organization is very different from every other one, having its own specific templates, standards, and ways of working. With Contribute, you can customize the portions of the help content to train your users to work more efficiently in your own organization.
