WordPress Development Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for WordPress developers and administrators. Join them; it only takes a minute:

Here's how it works:
  1. Anybody can ask a question
  2. Anybody can answer
  3. The best answers are voted up and rise to the top

Basically, I need a plugin that let you edit posts and comments the same way you do in StackExchange sites (questions and replies)?

Because by default Wordpress sends you to the back-end.

Yes, try the Front-end Editor by Scribu!

@keatch that plugin is amazing. But it doesn't take you to another page, instead you edit in the same page. – janoChen Mar 7 '11 at 9:21
Why would you want it to take you to another page?! – scribu Mar 7 '11 at 9:22
@scribu, is there any way of start editing by pressing a 'edit' link (instead of double clicking)? – janoChen Mar 7 '11 at 13:35
@scribu Thanks! – janoChen Mar 7 '11 at 15:08
