The direct editing feature of OpenCms

The "direct edit" feature of OpenCms 6 allows editing of pages directly "from the page". This means it is not required to be in the OpenCms workplace to edit a page. You simply open the page in the browser, and edit from there.

Please note: To use the direct edit feature, the user must be in an "Offline" project. Direct editing is not possible from the online project. This also means the user must log in first.

If in an Offline project, just click on the "Edit" button on the page to edit any text element.

The following pages show the direct edit feature on pages and the inclusion of editable elements on JSPs from other pages.
