Alternatives to Macromedia / Abobe Contribute product?

I do some light web design now and then and have always recommended Macromedia's (now Adobe) Contribute product to non-techy or non-web folks to some easy site updates. However, the newer CS3 version has some steep min. requirements and I am having a hard time finding v2 for purchase from a reputable place -- doesn't even show up on eBay.

Are there any alternatives to Contribute? Something that is similar in design and concept?

Many thanks for any suggestions.

Off hand, the only ones that come to mind ae Dreamweaver and FrontPage 2003.

The new Microsoft Expression Web (Frontpage replacement) is about one third of the price of Dreamweaver and it seems to be getting mainly good reviews. I haven't used it myself so I cannot comment.

woodcycl - Welcome to WebmasterWorld. From all I've seen, Contribute is a very nice site management system. In this discussion in the Content Management forum...

Allowing customers to edit their own websites

...this statement caught my eye, suggesting that Joomla, as a content management system, might work as I've seen Contribute work, with different levels of access....

You can also assign individuals to roles - Joomla uses Access Control Levels. This way they can edit or create new content and you don't have to worry about them messing up the website.

You'd have to use Joomla as a CMS to do this. I have no idea what that entails.
