A WYSIWYG-Editable Site with Something Like Contribute, But Not Contri

 6:39 pm on May 7, 2010 (gmt 0)

Adobe offers an FTP-capable client-side program called Contribute that can be used to edit an already-built site in a WYSIWYG fashion. Today, an Adobe representative has stated that Adobe DreamWeaver is not needed for the insertion of Adobe-specific mark-up tags that prevent a non-technical site manager from editing predefined areas of the site. Thus; according to Adobe, Contribute is a viable CMS solution even when the site developer uses any common editor - even NotePad - rather than DreamWeaver for the insertion of the "Not Editable Here" type of Adobe-specific mark-up tags.

However; for a variety of non-technical reasons, Adobe products are often not a desirable solution for the aforementioned scenario. This posts asks; is there an off-the-shelf program like Adobe Contribute (as described above)?

This post is not seeking server-side options like; for example, Joomla and WordPress. Your helpful references will be greatly appreciated.

Did you find anything for this?

Would an inline WYSIWYG editor like CKEditor be along the lines of what you're looking for?

Isn't CKEditor one of the "... server-side options like; for example, Joomla and WordPress ..." rather than something that runs completely on the client-side computer?

You are correct.

Perhaps something along the lines of Microsoft Live Writer might work. It can handle almost any blog service - Windows Live, Wordpress, Blogger, LiveJournal, TypePad, and others. I wonder if it would work with yours. I've never used it, but it's a download and works client side.
