Description: Refers to the ability for users to be able to edit/manipulate content from the website page, potentially using a combination of ‘in line’ editing where appropriate, and triggers to launch editor tools in overlays.

Current thinking/roadmap:

  • On clicking the ‘Edit’ button in the header, regions of the page would be defined as clickable (eg. nodes, blocks, navigation). Depending on which was selected, the appropriate editor tool would be shown
  • Nodes would be able to be edited inline (special handling for images?), blocks, views, navigation would launch an overlay with form based editor tools
  • Clicking ‘Edit’, ‘Save’ or a click in clear space would switch out of edit mode (auto save)
