WordPress Front-end Editor Preview

WordPress Front-End Editor Preview

One of the most requested features for any Content Management System (CMS) is finally making its way into WordPress core, front-end editing. In simplest terms, this will give users the ability to edit post and page content within the front-end of the site instead of the WordPress dashboard. This feature would allow theme developers to more seamlessly integrate styling into the editor so users get a real-world preview of their content edits.

Now in its early stages, the plugin already includes formatting using TinyMCE 4. TinyMCE is the software which gives users Microsoft Word like control of style, alignment and font weight. Other features, such as media upload, tagging and CSS classes, are quickly evolving.
