View Full Version : HTML5: Local storage & contenteditable - simplify content management?

So we all know about HTML5 and how it has local storage and you can now apply a contenteditable attribute to pretty much anything that has text in it.
Would you use this in a live project? Perhaps to make content management easier? An administrator could enable this as part of a debug mode to change the content on a website... endless possibilities.

Are any of you considering using this in a live project? I think in a few years vBulletin may implement this for post editing and such...

javascript:document.body.contentEditable='true'; document.designMode='on'; void 0
Consider the above a nice "easter egg" - it will make any text on the page editable. A little preview for anyone who doesn't know about it.
