Inline Editing (Editing in Place)

Editing page content is pretty straightforward in Reason, but it can be a bit of a hassle when all you need to do is fix a typo. Wouldn't it be great if you could make edits directly on a web page, without going through the admin interface at all?

With Reason's inline (front-end) editing capabilities, you can quickly edit edit page content, news/posts, blurbs, and page titles within the context of your site.

Editing Page Content and Blurbs Inline

  1. Click the Login link in the footer area of the page. You will see three editing options: Edit Page, Edit Site, and Edit in Place.
  2. Click the Edit in Place link. The editable elements on the page (Title, Content, Blurbs) will display a link allowing you to edit them.
  3. Click the Edit link for the item you want to change. The content will appear in a WYSIWYG editing window.
  4. When you're finished making changes, click Save and Finish Editing.
  5. You can click the Stop Editing link in the footer to return to your normal page view.

Editing News / Posts Inline

  1. Go to the post that you want to edit. You need to be viewing the individual post, not the main Blog / Publication page.
  2. Click the Turn on inline editing link in the page footer.
  3. Click the Edit Post link for the item you want to change. The post title and content will appear in editable fields.
  4. If you need to edit the description (which may be where the actual post content resides), click the Show Description link.
  5. When you're finished making changes, click Save and Finish Editing.
