Working with existing web pages and blog entries
Last updated 4/30/2011
For more information about the e-mail review process, see “The e-mail review process” on page 48. If you are assigned
a role that cannot publish, you cannot use the e-mail review process. In that case, use the draft review process (see “The
draft review process” on page 46).
Note: The draft review process only applies to web page drafts. It is not applicable to blog entry drafts.
1 In your draft, select Send > Send for Review, or select File > Actions > Send> Send For Review.
The Send dialog box appears.
2 Select the Send e-mail With A Link To A Preview Of The Draft option, and then click Send.
3 If the Send New Page dialog box appears, you can change the draft’s filename or click Choose Folder to save this
draft in another location. You can also change the expiry date for the new page than the one specified by the
administrator. Then click Send or Next.
Note: The current folder location appears in the web address (URL) under the filename.
4 If the Send Linked New Files dialog box appears, select each unpublished linked page to change the filename and
folder location as necessary. Then click Send All.
Contribute creates a new e-mail message in your default e-mail application.
In Mac OS, Contribute works with the following default e-mail applications: Apple Mail®, Eudora®, and Entourage®.
Note: If Contribute does not find a default e-mail application or cannot start your e-mail application, you can create
the e-mail message by clicking the Click Here link in the message area under the toolbar. Copy the web address (URL)
for the draft that appears in the browser window and paste the address in an e-mail message to send to reviewers.
5 Enter the reviewer’s name and a message, and then send the e-mail message.
In Contribute, you can work on another draft or switch to the Contribute browser until you receive feedback from
the reviewer. When you receive feedback from the reviewer, click the draft title in the Pages panel to return to the
draft and update it.
Note: When you delete or publish the draft, Contribute removes the temporary copy of the draft that it placed on the
server for the reviewer.
Send a file for review
You can send a file that is on your computer to another person to review or publish for you. You cannot select HTML
files or dynamic file types, such as JSP. If you select an invalid file type, Contribute warns that you cannot select this
file and provides a complete list of invalid file types.
You can also publish a file directly from your computer, depending on the role the Contribute administrator assigned
you. For more information, see “Publish a file from your computer to your website” on pag e218.
1 Select File > Send File From My Computer. The Select File dialog box appears.
2 Select the file you want to add to the website, and then click Select. If you have connections to more than one
website, the Select Website dialog box appears.
3 If the Select Website dialog box appears, select the website where you want to add the draft for the file for review,
and then click OK.
The website list includes any website you are connected to. The reviewer you want to send the file to must also be
connected to the website you select.
The Send For Review dialog box appears.
