Working in On-page edit view

On-page editing is what you see when accessing the edit view in Episerver. From here you can instantly start editing content; the areas that are available for editing are highlighted. The available areas depend on how the page type has been defined and each area is set up with a property type which controls what you can do with each area. One area can, for example, have an image property type and is intended for images; another area can have a page description property and is intended for text describing the page. This means that you will have different editing options when clicking an area, depending on the area's type of property. Typically for a page, you can edit page name, description, the main editorial area, and perhaps a content area with blocks.

Areas and properties available for editing are implementation-specific, and depend on the type of property and how the rendering is built on your website.

Editing additional properties

The on-page editing view contains a number of properties which are reached by scrolling to the very top of the page with the wheel on your mouse. These are called basic info properties and can be used to add a simple address, set access rights for a page or to change the name in the URL and so on.

Not all properties are available in the on-page editing view; to see all properties, switch to the All Properties editing view.
