Edit a table in view mode

Rhyne Armstrong Apr 29, 2012

Hello everyone,

I am building configuration pages for each of my clients. I don't want to have a long table for our consultants to edit manually, so I am looking for a way for them to be able to edit each field in view mode. I know this is possible if I make each field a child page and use the checklist macro, but there are 200 fields.

Does anyone out there have any ideas how I can simply have the consultants click a tab, edit what they need and move on? I am using the following to build the client page:

  • Scaffolding
  • Composition
  • Theme Builder

Thank you for any ideas you might be able to share.

Hello Rhyne,

I've done some researching and I believe this is not possible at the moment, so I've created a improvement request for you.

I suggest to vote and watch to increase the chance for this to be implemented if that is feasible.
