One Click Editing in Movable Type

By Deane Barker on March 9, 2006

Fast track into the MT admin interface: Great post from Jay Allen on some simple hacks to allow one-click access from a published post to its edit screen in Movable Type.

Nearly four years ago, I posted a silly little hack to have MT itself publish the entry’s edit URL on the published blog, showing it only if you had a cookie that was set from a separate page. Later, I expanded this to include links directly into Movable Type for all editable content. Now, there are a couple of new tricks I want to share with you that I’ve been using lately and which have made my life a lot easier.

I like the bookmarklet option — for this, and for any CMS really. It’s a nice way to get the link off the page, but still have it work for every post. Very simple, very slick.
