Editing inserted content without leaving where it was inserted

Finding and editing Inserted Records.

Inserting content from another page is a great way to put the same content on two pages. It eliminates having to make sure that replicated content is always in sync, editing two or more content elements.

You can find and edit these elements by two methods.  You can put the unique ID of the record in the Typo3 search (the magnifying glass in the upper right of the workarea) and press enter.

However once you edit the element and save, you stay in the search results, you are not on the page with the inserted records.  You have to go back to that page to get back to the inserted records element.

The other method leaves you on the inserted records element once you have edited the record.

On the Insert Records tab, find the record you want to edit and left click on the Record icon to the left of the header/sample text.  You'll get a contextual menu where you can pull down to "Edit".

Once you've edited the record, save and close.  You will go back to where you found the inserted record in the Insert Records tab of the page you were on.
