This plugin enables you to quickly enter edit mode by double clicking the headline or text.

Download and Installation

Search and install the plugin using the Extension Manager. Refer to Plugins on how to install plugins manually.


After installation just double click on a page to enter edit mode. JavaScript must be enabled in your browser and you may have to clear the cache.

The plugin supports section edit and recognizes data, edittable and other plugins with their own section editors.


This plugin will never become an in-line editor – they are not easy to get bug free. If you are looking for that, try inlineeditor or quickedit.

The plugin is dependent on the template used. It has been tested with the most popular but if you find one that's not working feel free to file a bug in the bug tracker.

Change Log


I don't know much about what is easily possible in the plugin, but it would be fantastic if some javascript could pick up on the exact text clicked on, and once the edit page has been displayed, would place the cursor at that particular word. Maybe this could be done with a text search, or maybe this is WAY harder than it sounds, but to me this would be even more useful than section edit. — KouOuKen 2009/11/27 11:36
