DirectEdit

Description

Edit your website directly in the front-end. With the wysiwyg inline editor you can modify content just anywhere. You must try it to see how smooth it works!

Direct edit has an amazing image editor. Choose an image, and while you resize or crop it, it will be uploaded to the server automatically. One click and the image is inserted on your page.

Installation

In the WordPress backend, search for the plugin ‘directedit’. Once you found it, activate it and you are done.

switch between view and edit

In theory the website should look exactly the same when you are logged in and visit the front-end. The one exception is that links in text do not work. Use CTRL click to test them, they will open in another tab.

If you want to be sure, there is a great plugin “user-switching”. After you install it, in the front-end just below the log-out link you will find a new link “switch off”. Click it and you will see the website as an anonymus visitor. At the bottom of the page there will be a link “switch back to admin”.

Reviews

Works but major problem

I have tested this plugin because I want to use a good front-end editor for a customer. Although it has not been updated for a while it was working.

But… when editing a page with shortcodes the whole page was a mess.
So I don’t recommend using this plug-in, too bad.

Maybe when they update the plug-in?

Works fine for me

Still I would like the ability to temporarily disable it from frontend, so to see how the page works
