Greetings editors of the wiki, today I felt like talking about this handy option available that allows for editing articles without using the edit button. This is more or less a tutorial on how to do this if you wish to do so.

Edit by double clicking

You're probably familiar with using the edit button at the top of the article page by now and use it exclusively to begin editing an article. However, you have some options in your Preferences that allow you to start editing just by double-clicking within the article text.

To enable this, go to My Preferences and click on the Editing tab. Under the Starting an Edit section, you'll notice a few options. Check "Edit pages on double click" and hit the Save button at the bottom. Now when you go to an article, you can double click and be sent to the editor page immediately.

Edit section by right clicking

There is a similar method for when editing specific sections in an article in which you can right click on a section header instead of the edit button. You can also turn said edit link next to section headers off entirely while also using this option.

To enable this, go to My Preferences and click on the Editing tab. Under the Starting an Edit section, you'll notice a few options. Check Edit sections by right clicking on section titles and, optionally, uncheck "Show section edit links". Make sure you hit the Save button at the bottom for these options to take effect. Now when you go to an article, you can right click on a section header and be sent to the editor page immediately with only the contents of that section. This is useful for focusing on editing parts of an article.

That's really all there is to it. You'll now potentially don't even need to touch the Edit button to start making edits on the spot and have a more intuitive editing experience. I know I am.
