Front-end editing in Joomla 3 is a bit limited. How could I add more features to it such as the "alias" or the "association" tab, or maybe to get on the front-end the same features than in backend?

  • If you want the article form to be customized for front-end, i think you can try SEBOLD for that. Commented Jul 22, 2014 at 8:47
  • What framework are you using?

  • @johnny_s: I don't understand what you mean by framework? I am using Joomla 3.3.1, the admin template is isis, the front end template is protostar.

  • Thanks @Sasivarnakumar, I am looking for a front-end article edit layout override rather than a component.

  • I though you may have been using a custom template. You could do manual template overrides if you are familiar with them, alternatively you may want to have a look at K2 (getk2.org) - it provides the ability to add custom fields quite easily -although I don't think you want a component.

First of all - alternate template (place template file in your template/html/com_content directory).

Then - add new editing options to altered template. You can use existing options as refference.
