Slash Edit is an extremely helpful plugin for WordPress that makes it easy to quickly edit a post or page if, like me, you hate WordPress’ admin bar.
To edit any page or post, you simply append /edit to the URL. So, for example, if I wanted to edit this post, I’d just have to go to:
. . . and I’d immediately be taken to the edit post page for this article. If I wasn’t already logged in to the site, I’d be prompted to log in and then be redirected to the edit screen for this post.
