What is Inline Editing?

MediaKron's Inline Editing feature allows fast and simple changes to site components. Rather than editing homepage, topic, and item pages in Manage Project/Add Content, users can edit directly on the front end of the site. Inline Editing allows users to see edits as they are made on the screen where the changes will take place.


Which site components can be changed via Inline Editing?

-Homepage: Title and Description

topic page

-Topic Pages: Title, Description and Image

item page

-Item Pages: Title, Description, Image, PDF (if applicable), Topic, Tags, and Timeline
