==Authoring using Adobe Contribute ®: a brief review==
+
-
Adobe Contribute is the name of a web page authoring program.  You can use its simple features to create, change, delete, and organize web pages in your parts of the site [http://library.csu.edu/ http://library.csu.edu/].
+
-
 
+
-
You can not easily interfere with other users.  Errors can be rolled back.  In any case, the changes are staged for the web site and not installed until evening.  If there is a real need, the changes can be deleted or installed immediately.  The system is flexible.
+
-
 
+
-
Adobe Contribute must be installed on a workstation.  There are seven installed in the library. The instructions below apply to the version of Contribute used in the Adobe Creative Suite CS5.  Other workstations may have CS3 or CS4.

===Brief Review of Starting, Editing, and Finishing Web Authoring with Adobe Contribute ===
+
-
Use one of the seven workstations above.  These have been configured with Adobe Contribute CS5.
+
-
 
+
-
You will have been supplied with passwords and usernames for authoring, editing, or publishing.  The Connection Key will establish your portion of the web site with its resources and tools.  You can obtain the key below by using or saving this file. There is great flexibility.  You must keep these authentication items private and safe, or your portion of the web site may be compromised.
+
-
 
+
-
You will be asked to supply a correct connection password.  Your director or the Digital Initiatives Librarian will have provided this password. You should never share this password.  If it should become known to others, notify the Digital Initiatives Librarian immediately. Anyone with this password can change or deface your site using Contribute.

This link can also be used to download and store your key on a JumpDrive or other device.  You can email the link for handy access.

Issues with the site should be detailed at the New Site Problem Report. Any email or verbal discussions regarding the new web site will be posted here with attributions and dates so that all members of the library have an opportunity to be aware of issues and respond knowledgeably.
