With respect to editing of pages a number of factors present themselves
i.e. how often the pages are being updated, who is doing the updating, how
comfortable are they with technology etc. If the people updating the
content are business contributors/users who have other primary
responsibilities, the easier and more intuitive the tool is the better.
In the current environment, users like the fact that they don't have to
learn a new system, new classifications and new commands per se and feel
comfortable navigating the site and editing it directly - it doesn't seem
like such a big deal.
I also think it is worth remembering that different people work in
different ways and there will never really be a right way or a wrong way if
all things being equal, it is a choice between one or the other.

What do you think is the best way to present a content editor to the
We currently use a completely separate site that users have to log in
to and then go through a page listing to find a page they want to edit.
They can also edit a number of other elements for the site.
Other systems I have seen provide a facility so that after you have
logged in, one or more edit buttons will appear at the top of each
Which do you think is the best approach?
I am toying with our current structure, but introducing a facility so
that the user can browse the site to select a page to edit as well.
Any thoughts would be appreciated.
