- Add the stack to any page you want the text and images to be editable on.
- In the stack’s settings menu, create a username and password for login.
- Preview the site in a browser or upload your site and in the browser address bar add ?admin to the end of the address. Press enter/return to load the the login screen for that specific page. Once logged in you will be able to edit any text or images found on that page. *This excludes any content that is not already available on page load. Stacks or plugins that append content after load will not be editable.
Restricting the editor to specific regions or stacks
You can specify what content is editable by adding the included Quick Editor Admin Wrapper stack to your page. In the wrapper stack’s settings “Wrapper type” is set to “Editable content” by default. Any text or images placed inside this stack will be editable. If the wrapper stack is placed on the page with this wrapper type enabled, all content not found inside this (or any other wrapper stack set to “Editable content”) will not be editable.
If you would rather specify which areas are not editable you may switch the “Wrapper type” to “Noneditable content”. The wrapper stack also include two more types. “Admin only content” will set anything placed inside the stack to only be visible in the admin or editor. “Admin hidden content” will hide the content when in the admin or editor and will show the content to page visitors only.
