Merge Frontend and Backend for loggid-in user

    Why do we need a seperate Backend and Frontend.
    I wish there would be a new button in the Backend-Menu called "Blog" oder "Website".

    When I am logged in there will be the same head-menu like in the now called backend. So switching from view to edit ist just one click.

    Its one of these things thats made seperate but really doesnt have to be...

    nice idea. I'd like my blog's registered users to be able to edit their profile and stuff like this without seeing my blog's underwear (the admin panel).

    People register - log in - use the site...and all this is done with my blog template, i don't want them to see the admin panel, even if they can't use any functionality.

    I vote "FANTASTIC" on this idea.

    I use the WP Admin Bar plugin for this, but I would agree that this is one more thing that would make a nice standard feature. You could always have a disable button for those that don't want it (few probably).

    @captainhendry: yes, I agree. in addition: I think of a bit more than the current admin-bar-plugins. it scould be more like the whole current-backend-navigation-bar...

    Or at least display the front end as part of the back end. It's annoying to have to jump between two tabs/windows while checking and rechecking the effect of edit operations.

    Strongly disagree. The 'edit this'-link is just enough for me; WordPress' distinction between backend and frontend is very clear and intuitive for end-users, and it should stay that way.

    I think it's vital for worpress to have frontend editing capabilities. This goes hand in hand with web 2.0 where all users are contributors.
    I'm desperately trying to find a solution where all registered users can write blog posts and attach pictures without having to go through the back.
    This should be a key feature to WordPress! And a highly customizeble one!

    Definitely a must!
    There should be a backend for the admin, thats ok.
    But for "normal" users there should definitely be a frontend.
    In general a proper user profile would be awesome to begin with. Things like a profile picture, some stats, and possibly a PMS system... :-)

    Increases the difficulty of theming. More template tags and conditionals to include.

    I think this would be an awesome idea... Who cares about the extra theming... I would quite happily do the extra work in making a theme to make the whole site follow the same design
