Adobe Contribute

Adobe Contribute is a program that can easily be used to publish websites. This guide is written for Adobe Contribute version 6.5 and the steps for publishing your website may vary for newer versions of the program. Version 6.5 is currently not available in English, so the guide is written with the English version of the program. To see larger versions of the photos, click on them.

Already when you start the program for the first time, you can choose to create a new Website Connection:

Now the existing website will appear in the main screen, if you have not previously created any website with us, this is our most commonly used “under construction” site. You can now start working with your website and publish it directly through us through Adobe Contribute. Good luck!
