Using Contribute to Make Basic Edits

Assuming the role of Ada, Cammy, or Tina, we'll now walk through the process of opening the connection key in Contribute. After the key has been imported into Contribute, we'll use the program to make basic edits to the Dorknozzle site and then publish our changes to the web server. To import the connection key into Dreamweaver, you can do one of two things: You can double-click the STC file from the email, or you can open Contribute and click the Import button from the My Connection dialog (available from the Edit menu in Contribute). To make things easy, we'll use the first option. To open the key in Contribute, follow these steps:

1.
To get the full effect of how connection keys work, try using a completely different computer, logging in with the account that has access to the email account that contains the Contribute connection key. If you don't have access to a second computer, that's fine, simply double-click the connection key file (the STC file). Contribute opens, and the Import Connection Key dialog appears similar to Figure 13.24.

2.
Assume that I'm logged into Ada's computer. Notice the dialog shown in Figure 13.24; it allows me to enter my name, my email, and the secret decryption key (which I specified was Dorknozzle). Add the unique information for the first user, entering Ada for name, ada@dorknozzle.info for email, and Dorknozzle for the password; click OK. As you can see from Figure 13.25, the dialog disappears and the Dorknozzle site opens in Contribute.

3.
To see the defined connection for the Dorknozzle site, simply choose the My Connections option from the Edit menu. The My Connections dialog appears, similar to Figure 13.26. You'll see that the Website Name, Address, Role, and Administrator values appear, as they've been defined, in the row.

To close the My Connections dialog, click Close.
