Creating and editing content while browsing the website
Use this procedure to create, edit, and upload content while you are browsing the website. You do not need to open the website in the backend; you can use the inline editing function to edit your website directly while browsing it. Using the direct inline editing, you can see how the items you are editing look in the context of the website.
To directly edit your website, perform the following:
- Open the inline editing in one of the following ways:
- Click Tools button and in the dropdown menu, click Show editing tools.
Next to each item that you can edit, the system displays one of the following buttons:
NOTE: If there is an active workflow, the process of creating, editing, and uploading content follows the rules of the workflow. For more information, see Workflows and Status of content items and pages.
When you are in inline editing mode, the system indicates this by changing the color of Tools button as in the following screenshot:
- To close the inline editing mode, click Tools button and in the dropdown menu click Hide editing tools.
- If you want to make changes that are not available in inline editing mode, you must open the page in Sitefinity backend by clicking Tools » Edit this page in the Backend.
NOTE: To see which user is logged and can use the inline editing, click Tools. The system displays the user that is currently logged in Sitefinity. You can use the Tools button to logout after you finish the changes.
