1. Basics of frontend editing

This section will take you through the basics of the frontend editing, how to log in and the structure of it.

1.1 Logging in to frontend editing

Before starting to work with the frontend editing, you need to activate it for your user. Go to the user settings and the tab called 'Edit and Advanced functions'. There is a checkbox for activating the frontend editing interface (1) and one for setting the right bar ovelay (2). The latter means that the right hand side tool bar, in the interface, will appear on top of the website instead of pushing it giving the website a tablet size window. (1.1.1)

After switching on the frontend editing in your user settings, you can either enter it from the login window in TYPO3 or by showing a page in frontend (if you are logged in to the backend of TYPO3).
