How to access the Editor of a CMS Webflow website?

Hi,

Is the editor only installable through the invite from the dashboard? Or is there a dedicated download page where my clients can install the browser plugin so they can edit their site?

If they already have a login for the editor it’s a bit confusing using the invite function since that’s mainly for new users being added.

Hi Johan,

There is no plugin needed, the Editor works for sure in Chrome and Safari, on any published CMS/Ecommerce site. (And probably on Firefox although Firefox support is still in beta, so it’s not advisable to give that to clients just yet).

The Editor is reachable just with a URL parameter, that’s the same for every site. You just have to add ?edit to the url of the site.

For example:

https://yoursite.webflow.io can be edited on https://yoursite.webflow.io?edit
https://www.yoursite.com can be edited on https://www.yoursite.com?edit

Just add ?edit, refresh, and wait a couple of seconds for the bottom menu to appear.

This is just wonderful! Thanks a ton Vincent
