    The Manage Sites dialog box appears.

  2. Select a site, then click Edit.

    The Site Definition dialog box appears.

  3. Click the Advanced tab.
  4. Select the Contribute category from the Category list on the left.
  5. Select the Enable Contribute Compatibility option and complete the dialog box.

    For more information, see Setting options for the Contribute category in the Site Definition dialog box.

  6. Click OK to close the Site Definition dialog box.
  7. Click Done to close the Manage Sites dialog box.
