html editing - Macromedia Contribute General Discussion

Hello all. I'd like to edit content viewing the code rather than the actual design. Is that possible? I'm a noob so any help is greatly appreciated....

    That is not possible. Contribute is made for people who know nothing about HTML
    and provides an easy-to-use interface. Therefore a code view would probably
    confuse editors.

    You would have to use Dreamweaver instead. If you are the administrator it
    might make sense to edit pages with Dreamweaver (having the option to switch to
    code view) and have editors use Contribute. Just mark "Active Contribute
    Compatibility" when setting up a site in Dreamweaver. Dreamweaver then uses
    "checking in" and "checking out" etc.

    If the Contribute role is set up, Contribute will allow you to open the source
    code in an external app and make changes in the code. Contribute doesn't do
    code-view but it will allow you to edit code.

    To turn external editing on:
    - Edit/Administer Website/ SITENAME
    - Choose the role and then click "Edit Role Settings"
    - Choose "Editing" and look under the section "Other Editing Options" to see
    if the checkbox is set for "Allow users to edit web page source in external
    application"

    To edit page in external app:
    - Browse to the page in Contribute
    - File/Actions/ Edit Page Source in External Application

    Make changes to the source code, save the file and then return to Contribute
    and Publish the file.

    If you are going to be doing significant code changes you might consider using
    Dreamweaver, but if you're just like editing content in code-view this at least
    will allow you to do that.

    Hope this helps.
