good to see custom post type 'front-end-editor' support added.

Does NOT work at all
By , for WP 4.2.2

Dont waste your time with this.

1) Installed plugin

2) Went to front end

3) No edit button that users are saying, hitting the original 'edit' button at the top (admin bar) - simply loads the page in the normal wordpress backend editor.

Works seamlessly but no distraction free mode
By , for WP 4.2.1

Once you've posted an article, you're almost forced to use WordPress' own badly mutilated editor. It is just terrible. Whenever your mouse move even a millimeter to far to the left or right, some useless slide-inn appears. Just let me write! The distraction free editing mode is even worse, it has turned into a joke.

So I looked for a simple front end editor and WP Front End Editor does the job flawlessly.

Whether it is WordPress coding that forces the developers to use silly slide-ins and pop-ups or personal preference I don't know, but without an option to switch their appearance on and off, for me the plug-in has limited use.

Still just playing around, but…

…the front-end writing experience is completely seamless. I love it!

A bit quirky, but can be a lifesaver

Seriously saved me when I had to manually edit 500+ posts to add customized shortcodes. Was able to do it in 3 hours. No way I could have managed that using the back-end editor.

Unfortunately, the plugin just stopped working. I've deactivated it and reactivated it several times, disabled all of my other plugins, and it just won't work anymore. Such a shame as I feel it's a great plugin and would use it often.
