Adobe Contribute (formerly Macromedia Contribute) is a web publishing and website management tool that integrates authoring, reviewing, and publishing in a WYSIWYG HTML editor. The purpose is to increase web publishing productivity collaboratively while simplifying oversight and approval tasks.

Contribute consists of two components, a client for editing, and a "publishing server" that Adobe describes as "complementary".[citation needed] Contribute also includes an in-browser editing component that works as a plug-in for recent versions of Microsoft Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox.[1]

Contribute is designed to integrate with Adobe Dreamweaver and other Adobe products.[2] It was included in the Web Premium[3] and the Master Collection[4] editions of Adobe Creative Suite until version 5.5.
