Chapter 1. Exploring Contribute > Understanding Contribute

Understanding Contribute

Contribute's primary goal is to make Web sites as easy to edit as they are to browse. Although Contribute is built on the Dreamweaver engine, most of the complexities of working with Web pages are hidden from the Contribute user. For all the apparent simplicity, there's a lot going on under the hood. Let's take a look at the way Contribute works.

Each Contribute site has an administrator. The administrator may or may not be the site's designer, but administrators typically have access to all the site files and often administer the site through Dreamweaver. The connection information—whether files are transferred over a network, via FTP, or through a secure FTP port—is managed by the administrator. Connection information is either distributed by an encrypted file called a connection key, or enabled for the user by the administrator through the Connection Key Manager.
