WA Fronted

Description

The core concept with Fronted is that theme and plugin developers incorporate their configuration filter and/or add-on in their plugin or theme. However since version 1.3.5, it will automatically configure itself to make post_content, post_title and post_thumbnail editable if no other options are set.

Reviews

Excellent solution to a big problem

In the world of front-end page builders this plugin adds some sanity to the mix. Allow your clients to edit from the front-end the content you want them to be able to. Clean and simple, this really should be part of the core.
The plugin does need some work, certain HTML elements and shortcodes trip it up but im sure this will be resolved in future versions.

Don’t let it scare you. Play with the Demo.

At first, this plugin was quite intimidating. It’s not the plugin itself but the manner in which it’s presented. I was looking for something simple a client could use to edit a page when I found this. This is perfect. It works right out of the box. You have to try it.

The reasons that I give this only 4 stars are as follows.

  1. The instructions could be written better.
  2. There are a few CSS issues like H3 H2 [] not showing up.
  3. No settings page for roles and features.

Great plugin!
