Make life easier for your users with the WordPress Front End Editor
The success of WordPress has been due in part to its ease of use, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t room for improvement. The Front End Editor plugin by scribu (Silviu-Cristian Burcă), is likely to delight your church office staff because it will not only make it easier to edit content on your WordPress church site, it will save them time too.
By integrating a really nice inline visual editor, called Aloha, you can edit your page or post content in situ, without having to visit the dashboard. It should work with any theme and what is really nice, unlike the WordPress visual editor, it uses your themes styles. Well, that’s what an inline editor does!
Once installed, logged-in users will see a little edit tab appear when they move their cursor over an editable content area, such as a post or page. Other editable content includes widgets (the widget options appears in situ!), titles, comments and other fields.
Click on the little tab and up pops the Aloha toolbar and you can start editing your content.
It is pretty simple, but could transform your blogging and content creation workflow. It certainly adds to ease of use of WordPress, and there must be a pretty strong case for including this or something like it in the core WordPress platform.
