Connection Keys

Contact web@esf.edu to receive a "connection key" that includes pre-configured connection information to set up Contribute. You need one for every website (folder) you edit.

When you get your key...

  1. Double-click on the email attachment (should have an extension .stc). Contribute should open automatically
  2. Contribute should prompt you for a Connection Key Password. This will always be 123
  3. It will also ask for your WebDAV username and password.
    1. Faculty and staff are on the esfadmin domain, thus esfadmin\yourusername is what you'll use. Your esfadmin password is probably the same password you use to log into your computer or get esf.edu webmail.
    2. Students must first get an account via this form. Once you have an account, the username\password form will be WWW\yourusername . Your password is the one assigned when the account was created.
    3. NOTE: You have the option of having Contribute store your login credentials (usually not recommended for public computers).
  4. Click to confirm, then add your name and email address (this is to identify you in the web server file check-in/check-out system).

NOTE: If you receive an error message, you may have a typo in your password. Please try again before calling for support.

You may now start editing You only have to complete this process once per installation.

Call Paul at 470-4858 or email web@esf.edu for support and training.

Adobe Contribute
ESF Web

Adobe Contribute is the standard ESF webpage editing tool. It's easy to use, and complete support is provided by the web office.

NOTE: Don't lose license or serial number info! It might be important later.

New Installations
Download and use immediately, purchase later

You must create an Adobe account first (free). You can start using Contribute right away -- just enter your serial number when it arrives to have a fully licensed version.

Once installed, request a "connection key" from the web office (see box to the right).

Now skip down to "Purchasing Contribute" to buy the serial number you'll need before the 30-day trial ends.
