We have some clients using Contribute, and they are delighted with it. They can do their own page updating, and we can move on to other projects with minimal hand-holding. Speed can be a bit creaky from the user end, but it's a lot faster in their perception (and reality) than forwarding changes to us and waiting for us to get an opportunity to do the updates for them. There are some things I don't like about it, such as not being able to do a lot of the connection settings manually, but it was designed to be used by folks who don't have a lot of expertise there. If I could have my wishes on it, I'd like to be able to get into a connection configuration up to my elbows to optimize things. ...Maybe someday... All in all, not a bad piece of work.

Someone wrote: "Contribute is macromedia's product for content providers, although when I tested it out, I was less than impressed by the learning curve (my usergroup wouldn't have been motivated enough) " I am thinking about suggesting Contribute to several nonprofit organizations to supply content to their own sites. I would welcome comments from anyone who has used it and/or helped not-technical users to use it.
