mojoPortal Tips: Using Inline Content Editing

One of the coolest features to be added to mojoPortal recently (as of 2.3.9.6) is the inline editing feature. It’s clean, simple and easy, but it can be slightly confusing at first. Let’s review how the new inline editing feature works, and what to watch for.

One of the few “gotchas” of using the inline editing feature is how to save real-time updates, without triggering the content approval process (even if it’s not turned on for that page or site).  Log into your mojoPortal site as an administrator, and navigate to a page where you’d like to test the inline editing function of your HTML feature. Look at the bottom of the page; do you see “Work in progress”, or “Live Content” on your administration bar? If you see “Work in progress”, it’ll automatically trigger a content approval process, even though you’re an administrator on the page.

Simply change the drop-down to “Live content”, then click the lock icon on your HTML instance. Edit your content as you wish, then click on your page outside the edit box. Voila – your changes are saved, and you can see it in real-time, without having to click through to the edit page. That is still available, if you’re more comfortable using it. When you’re finished editing, click the lock icon to close your edit session.
