There are a handful of WordPress plugins that are fun to use, but even more fun to show other people. Certain plugins just evoke that hey cool! reaction in others. Front-end Editor, from WordPress developer and contributor scribu, is one of those hey cool! plugins. If you’re new to this one, Front-end Editor allows you to edit your WordPress content from the front end of your site.
In the latest update to Front-end Editor, now version 2.0, the previous double click method for bringing up the editor controls are no more. They have been replaced by a jQuery-powered overlay that enables editing with just a single click. You can grab the updated version from the WordPress.org plugin directory, of course.
For a fun demo of the new plugin features see the video just after the jump.
If you use Front-end Editor, I’m curious just how you do. Is it something you primarily enjoy using, or do you set it up for clients the most? How many hey cool! reactions have you heard when showing it off?
