Site would not load when admin was open
By , for WP 3.9.2

Tried this on two different themes - using different computers. If main admin was open then for one site there would be a 40 second plus delay in opening the website front end and on the other site the front end would not open at all, I had to use different browser to check edits.

Even working in only the admin edit page area the same issues occurred with the Preview Changes feature.

Same issue in both Chrome and IE (latest version of browsers)

This issue occurred on two Windows 7 PCs and a Mac

Even if it did work (as obviously it does for some) the editing and checking process is probably longer when developing a page.

Not impressed

Sure it seems like a great idea, you see something in a post that you quickly want to edit, however it's filled with bugs. For example when I edit something on the front page, the <more> will disappear from post, so then I need to go in admin anyway to add it back on!!

Also the way it operates is lousy, jumps about a lot and not easy to select what you want to edit, or to cancel or save.

Probably ok with other themes, but not for mine and don't trust it.

Does not work on all themes/lack of support/conflicts with other plugins
By , for WP 3.5.1

Tried with Suffusion (the most used professional free one) and will mess the css on the frontend. Tabbed widgets will appear overlapped and the a webel is overlapping only half on the div it self for all elements in frontend.
This means that you see double the same element for almost anything on the page.
Lack of support for major issues like this is just enough to give it 1 star.
It might work for some, but on what themes? And not on Suffusion???
I can change my review if I can make it work with css, but it would be a long and painful hassle. I'm also fairly convinced it has issues with ssl pages, so my css is always embedded in the html source, this does not make it easy to debug.

It also interferes with the front end BuddyPress Docs plugin causing any front end edit doc page to not display the tinyMCE, so no visual on that either. (I guess it can be workaround it by going into php code and disable it for all doc pages - since those have already front end editing.... - but the hassle - and again no support)
