The frontend editing module adds the ability to edit HTML based content on

switching between edit and standard views, and that's all there is to it.

--- Name: frontend_config --- SiteTree: extensions: - FrontendEditableExtension ``` In the templates for the page types you would like editable, add the following in place of raw output fields - for example, instead of `$Content`, use
As well as single fields of the current page, you can use it on other objects contained in a control block (so long as those objects have the EditableExtension)

<% include FrontendEditingControls %>
NOTE after adding the above, when navigating to a page in 'Live' mode,
if you have edit access to the page, hovering your mouse over the bottom
right corner of the screen will display controls for launching the edit
mode. In "Stage" view, these controls should appear immediately.
