Adventskalender Day 16 – Front End Editing with WordPress 3.8

Some weeks ago a guy at the coworking space, I’m usually working at, asked me about a plugin to style your theme via the front end, some of his costumers want. I did not find what he asked for, but my colleagues knew about a plugin that, at least, makes front end editing possible. I really like it and think that this could be useful for some of you.

What we need is Parker, (better known as the latest version of WordPress 3.8) and a plugin called “WordPress Front-end Editor” by Janneke Van Dorpe. If you have not already updated to 3.8 don’t forget to do a backup!

After installing the plugin you are able to klick “Edit” (in my screens it is the German word “Bearbeiten“) and you can edit the headline and text of every page or post. Looks nice, wright?

Frontend Editor WordPress

Just click “save post“, that’s it.

What do you think? Is this a useful plugin?
And as a question to you: Do you know a plugin that enables user to style, or arrange widgets via the front end? Just let me know!
