Edit link on posts

    Hello all!
    I would like to know if it is possible to add an edit link at the bottom of posts like there is on pages. I want to be able to edit the post directly without having to open wordpress and then go to “all posts” and then search for the post.
    Has anyone found a way to do this? Why is the edit link there for pages but not posts?
    Thanks for any help!


    The blog I need help with is cancerenfant.com.

    Hello Nicole,

    When you click Blog Posts within the customizer, you should see an “Edit” button at the bottom of each post, as demonstrated in the following WordPress tutorial: https://en.support.wordpress.com/posts/edit-posts-screen/

    I hope that answers your question, let me know if you need further assistance :)




    Hello Emily,

    Thanks for your help. Where in the customizer do I see this? When you say “customizer”, you mean when I go on Themes then customize? I can’t find anywhere to click on an edit button to activate editing for all posts directly from the published post. The link you gave me explains how to edit from within the editor, which is not what I want. What I want is to be able to edit when by directly clicking on the published post itself, like I can do from a page. For example here is a page: https://cancerenfant.com/nous-connaitre/notre-mission-2/ and at the very bottom I can click on “edit”. But here is a post where there is nothing at the very bottom: https://cancerenfant.com/2013/10/07/zoe4life-enfants-cancer/ . Hope you can help with this! Thanks

    I see, thanks. There currently is not a way to do this, HOWEVER I asked our developer about it and he said he is going to add this capability into the theme (though I don’t know when, probably sometime this week). You will automatically receive this update when it happens – good news for you!! :)
