My employer's current (bespoke, but due for replacement) CMS system is effectively wysiwyg in that when users edit a document, the back end looks up the allocated template and displays the content in the preview/published layout and they just edit the content fields in situ.
Users are very comfortable with this, and switching to a new CMS with a list of fields (ie properties) in a tabbed form (such as Umbraco and - I think - most CMS system do) might make them nervous.
I was wondering if we could do a little jiggery-pokery and simulate this ie retrieve the template and lay out the fields in the published page layout rather than the vertical/tabbed format.
Possibly even doing this with jQuery after the document is loaded.
Does anyone think this is possible?
If so :
Thanks for any ideas
there is a package called Frontend Editing (https://our.umbraco.org/projects/website-utilities/frontend-editing/) which seems to do what you need.
But I'm not sure if it is still maintained and also working with the latest version of Umbraco.
Thanks for that. I am using FrontEnd Editing and it is an excellent package - it allows you go straight into editing a document from the front end.
However, it simply puts you into the standard Umbraco document editing form (with lists of fields within tabs) so it doesn't affect the editing layout in any way.
