JWC 2016 - Inline Editing for Joomla
Joomla Evangelist, Paul Franklin, unpacking Ark's "Inline-editing" at the 2016 JWC in Vancouver.
This 'click anywhere' and 'edit anywhere' feature, already present in other CMS', has long been awaited by Joomla users. It makes editing articles easier and simpler as it negates the need to go to an admin interface to edit a web page.
We decided to take on the mantle of implementing a solution for providing inline editing for Joomla. However, we shortly discovered the reasons why it was a long-awaited feature, and in this talk will discuss some of the issues you will face when trying to provide inline editing for Joomla for editing articles. We will also discuss the inline editing solution we have created and how you can not only get it to work with editing articles, but how it allows you to extend inline editing for your own third party extensions such as Content Construction Kits, which are very popular extensions for Joomla.
