  • 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..........

        designzombie eerrr wrong. You can do this quickly two ways. You can use an effect called "paint on" and literally paint a brush stroke over the script (say 5 frames per stroke). From there you...

        Not bad, I would prefer your counters be in the shape of the original font and not perfect circles.

        The design isn't bad in my opinion although there is still a lot that you need to do in terms of coding and backend - all of which I know nothing about. But as far as design it's not bad. The background...

        There isn't much out there because the industry is so new (digital, celluloid has been around for about 100 years). I'm a Motionographer and the industry is really a cross between Filmmakers, Graphic...

        OK I've concluded that the best way to do it is how I'm doing it already. Manually entering in. I have PDF software that I thought might be able to generate it and seeing that there are some Scripts...
