WordPress: When do I use Edit and Quick Edit for my Pages and Posts?

by Tyler Suchman on April 21, 2009

A client asked this question, regarding her WordPress 2.7 website. I thought it was a good opportunity to share this with everyone who is new to WordPress.

When you are on the Edit Pages or Edit Posts page in the admin, mouse over one of your items. You will see something like this:

When you click Quick Edit, you can edit the basic info attached to your Page or Post. For example, you can change the title, assign a different Parent Page or Unpublish it. When you Edit, you go to the Edit page for that Page or Post, where you can edit the actual content on the page. Put another way, Quick Edit is convenient for some tasks, but Edit will give you access to all of the information in and around your Page or Post.
