Contribute 2.0

In recent years, many blogging tools such as Nucleus and scripting languages such as Frontier have allowed diverse groups of users to collaborate on Web site content. But most of those tools require a working knowledge of at least HTML and often of PHP or more arcane languages. Macromedia’s Contribute 2.0 helps non-coders, well, contribute to a common site. Contribute certainly does what it promises: it makes editing simple Web content point-and-click easy. But although Contribute 2.0 can neatly solve basic content needs, it has limited capability to work with dynamically created and scripted sites. It also requires someone on the server side to set it up; you can't just load Contribute at home and expect to start working on your company's site. If you're looking for a more powerful, and possibly faster, solution, consider Vignette and its ilk, or custom tools.
