About this extension

This package adds frontend editing capability to TYPO3 CMS, using CKEditor, the rich text editor used by the TYPO3 core. The editor appears as a new backend module. When selecting a page in the page tree, the page becomes editable. Editable regions are configured in the templates, using Fluid or TypoScript.
