Click to edit elements

July 30, 2021

A user emailed me that it was hard to find where to edit certain parts of their website. For example, how do you edit the text under the site avatar? Is it in Headers and Footers? Site avatar? Contact? 
Answer: depends on the theme.
Result: hair-pulling frustration.
Working on your research is complex enough. Working on your website shouldn't be.
Solution: I added a new feature to the Owlstown Editor, so that it's clearer how to edit elements on the page. You can hover over elements on your website and an "Edit" button will appear. Clicking on the button will take you to the screen to edit the element.
Result: Less time working on your website. More time working on your research.

So far, I've added this feature to elements on the header and sidebar. Over time, I'll add this feature to all elements on the page.
Give it a try and let me know what you think.
