WordPress developer Pär Thernström has released a new plugin called Simple Front End Edit Buttons that aims to simplify the task of editing pages on a WordPress site by allowing them to be edited from the front end of the site, also known as the public view of the site. With the plugin activated, buttons are added next to page titles, and alongside certain widgets, to allow them to be edited on the spot.
Why use this? Maybe you’re running a large content site and can’t be bothered to jump into the Dashboard all the time. Maybe you have one of the many clients that have a tough time understanding any admin interfaces. Or maybe you need just one more active plugin on your site. Just one, then you’ll stop, right? Right?
