Support » Everything else WordPress » Unwanted edit button on my site

    On my website, just above the footer is an unwanted edit button. When I click on it, it allows me to edit the page. This edit button appears on every page of the website. How do I get rid of it?

    The page I need help with: [log in to see the link]

    Hey @nessadog

    I took a look at your site, and I could not find the edit button that you were referring to. Here’s a screenshot of what I see:

    I have a theory about why you are seeing the edit button though – it is probably because you are logged in to your site. When you’re logged in, the edit button shows up as a way for you to make edits to your site easily. It’s a WordPress feature.

    If you would like to test this out, open a private/incognito window in your browser (File > New Incognito Window in Chrome, and File > New Private Window in Firefox/Safari) and try loading your site. In all probability, you may not see the edit button.

    If the button still shows up in your tests, even as you are logged out of WordPress, please let me know. I’m happy to dig deeper to find out why this is happening.

    It seems that you are correct. That’s an odd feature though. Thanks for the input.

    @nessadog Oh, I hear you! Its purpose is to make sure that site owners or users can edit content directly from the front end. One could click on the “edit” button to go on and make edits, instead of navigating to the backend in order to make those changes. However, I understand that the placement could be confusing.

    I’m glad you were able to resolve this nonetheless. All the best!
