Today’s Sweet Plugin is a fun WordPress plugin to show off. Developed primarily by WordPress core contributor Scribu, Front-end Editor brings almost all the content editing capabilities of WordPress to the (you guessed it) front end of your site.
The video is embedded just after the jump, as well as more information about the plugin itself.
I find myself demonstrating WordPress and assorted plugins every now and then. Don’t we all? One that I like pulling out and showing off (thanks Scribu!) is the Front-end Editor plugin. Demonstrating this plugin elicits the perfect oohs and aahs you want when trying to show people just why WordPress is awesome.
I don’t personally use the plugin, since I spend a lot of time on the WordPress Dashboard anyway. But I would recommend setting up this plugin for your clients/friends that might not be quite comfortable with the back end of WordPress just yet. It could get them used to the idea of editing content on their sites, and warm them to the idea of using the admin a bit.
Do you use Front-end Editor on any of your sites? Do you recommend it to anyone else or, like me, show it off when you need an extra ooh?
