    This plugin is great. No doubt on it.
    But i have an objection of using it, because it is too aggresive this 'edit' button and the line wherever I will point my mouse.

    It do not give me pleasure to be logged in on my sites with this things on, since I put high care in fancy desing of my sites.

    If You spotted this as well, here is a solution:
    Could You just make a button - Front End Editor ON / OFF in the admin black bar? It will be so nice and easy to turn the editor on when it is needed! :)

    Thank You in advence :)

    That's a very interesting idea; don't know when I'll get around to implementing it though.

    I do agree. The plugin is a great plugin but too agressive. Isn't it possible to activate the editor on double clicking on an article?
    That would be neat.

    That was how older versions worked, but it was very fragile, technically speaking.

    /**editor hidde/show condition**/
    /*3 things to do*/
    /* place this code in function file of each theme
    add_filter( 'query_vars', 'addnew_query_vars', 10, 1 );
    function addnew_query_vars($vars)
    {
        $vars[] = 'edit-mode'; // var1 is the name of variable you want to add
    		//echo $_GET['edit-mode'] .'hi!';
        return $vars;
    }
    */
    /*then make a link such as
    <a href="?edit-mode=true">Edit mode</a>
    and place it where you like in your theme*/
    */finally place this code on ligne 95 of core.php ... replacing the css files call*/
    if ( $_GET['edit-mode'] ) {
    		wp_register_style( 'fee-editor', plugins_url( 'css/core.css', FEE_MAIN_FILE ), $css_dependencies, FEE_VERSION );
    		scbUtil::do_styles( 'fee-editor' );
    }

    I like the suggestion. I'd worry just a tiny bit about it cluttering the toolbar—think if every plugin added something there! But, since I love the plugin, I think it'd be worth it if a technically-sound solution can be found.
