The last time I had a chance to check out the Front End Editor plugin was back on April 28th, 2009. In that review, I mentioned that the plugin functioned well but for some sections of the Hybrid News theme, it didn’t play nice. To coincide with the release of WordPress 3.0, Front End Editor 1.9 is now available and has fixed the issues reported in the first review. The only complaint I have is the use of colors for the editable regions, specifically the edit button.
If you don’t pay attention, the button is easy to miss but thankfully, you can just double click anywhere within the yellow highlighted region to open the editor. This time around, none of the styling issues were present and the WYSIWYG editor functioned properly without all the beer mugs displaying. Other features worth noting in this release:
- Custom Post Type Support
- Configurable Editor Buttons
- Editable Term Descriptions
Improvements all the way around. Nice job Scribu.
Editing widgets from the front page is pretty convenient.
