The extension is going to become a friend that a shop owner/administrator meets with almost every day. It saves you time; it makes it quick and fun to edit products, categories, CMS pages, and static blocks; it transforms a routine job into an easy task that takes you mere seconds. Remain in complete control of your shop while browsing its storefront, not the jungles of the backend. Don't get distracted by numerous settings and tabs of the admin panel. When you find something to edit, you just click on a respective block's button and start making changes in no time.

To make the extension active for selected store views only and control editable resources, visit the respective page

  • Stores > Configuration > SAFEMAGE > Storefront Editor

Extension supports multiple store views. While in a working capacity, it displays a drop-down “Storefront editor” at the top for an admin user to easily start browsing the front part of the store in a new way. This is where the admin user can choose any store view from the allowed list and immediately enter the edit mode. This mode is only activated by a logged-in admin user. All shop visitors are safe from bumping into such a store’s mode with a broken layout. Done playing with the construction mode? The are 2 options here: click on the “Exit edit” header button or log out of the backend.

Any storefront edit is just one click away. All allowed resources are accompanied with the Edit button. A click on it opens a tab providing regular tools to edit a respective entity via the admin panel.

The "Edit" button for each content type is highlighted and contains some unique information like name and ID to keep you aware of the content you edit.

To get a better picture, try to fit shop owner’s shoes responsible for thousands of products. Say, you notice a ‘misStake’ in a product’s description while browsing the store. You don't need to perform redundant actions like opening the catalog in the admin panel, then searching for a necessary product by its name and finally correcting the mistake. All you do is click the "Edit" button and correct the mistake.

The Safemage module lets you spend your precious time on something more useful and work more efficiently. Because there is no point in spending minutes to find the backend Product, Category, CMS-Page or Static Block and eventually make a few-second edit.
