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 first release is very simple. It adds ondblclick event for section and header <div>'s and a little javascript navigates to same page with do=edit action (same as clicking the edit button).

Yes, the javascript is called 'openSectionEdit' but there's not section edit right now. There are different ways the accomplish that, I've not decided which is the best yet, your thoughts are welcome.

  • Advanced section edit, aware of headlines, sections, tables and <code>.


There is also another solution to inline editing proposed by emanuele called inlinedit using jEditable. The dblClickEdit plugin is on the other hand focused on using the standard editor (or WYSIWYG of your choise). — Håkan Sandell 2009/07/02 21:34
