I can't imagine website management getting much easier than that. Speaking as someone who would rather spend time at what I'm good at than struggling to understand what is for me an esoteric subject, this is best software investment I made all year.
As a copywriter, this program recently proved its value for me on a new website project. I was able to make copy changes whenever I wanted, even while web designer was also changing graphics and other page design elements on a daily basis.
Contribute 3 can be configured to allow you full access to a website (your own for example) or you can be restricted to editing only certain features or pages. For example, if you just need to update one section of a company website from time to time, your webmaster can set up permissions that will let you change only those pages.
While Contribute 3 doesn't let you do everything that more full featured web authoring programs like Dreamweaver or FrontPage do, it's still highly capable. You can edit pages, create new pages, add images and tables, create links to a page or document, and more.
If you're already a savvy designer comfortable with programs like Dreamweaver, or get by well enough with a text editor and basic FTP skills, you probably don't need Contribute 3.
But if you're anything like me and want a fast, easy way to update a website - you're going to love how easy it is to manage changes using Contribute 3. It's practically a no brainer.
Macromedia sells Contribute 3 directly from its website www.macromedia.com beginning at 79 dollars. However, they'll let you download and use full version for 30 days at absolutely no cost. So why not try it out on their dime and see what you think? After my trial period was up, I willingly plunked down cash to get my very own copy--and I'm glad I did.
