  • Contribute and Dreamweaver...

    Hey guys...

    I'm in charge of designing (redesign of the current design which I also did, 3 years ago LOL) a departmental website (biology) for a local college. One of the big things at the school now is Contribute. The college is offering discounts for this product, and training, so that faculty members and departments can get their websites up online. The pain is that we all know how MOST college departmental websites look! [img]/emoticons/freaked.gif[/img] I have developed a very nice, clean professional look, but now I'm trying to make it dynamic as well, so that not only will it be easier to update, but I can also 'turn loose' the various faculty members and have other office folks make changes to the website w/out wrecking my code and turning the site into a nightmare. The school currently only offers training on Contribute from the 'contributing' endpoint. I'd like to know if there's any available tutorials or help websites out there (aside from Macromedias) that can help me to best optimize the site for USE with Contribute....

    Thanks!

      Yeah that's what you're supposed to be able to do with DW/Cont ... set up template type websites that they CAN'T destroy.... Or at least that's the gist I got from the Macromedia Rep when I was at Tech Ed year before last..........

        1) No, the file has to actually output only the 2 colors.
        2) You can apply your spot color swatch to a grayscale copy of the image, but personally, I always HATE the result when this is done. It...
