On-Page Product Editing Comes to Sueetie Marketplace

As I mentioned on a previous post, the Marketplace will be getting some love for the upcoming Sueetie 3.4 release.  Tagging and integrated searching went online over the weekend.  Today I’m announcing a feature I’ve been wanting for a long time, On-Page Product Editing!

The Product Content Part Control is a modified version of the tried-n-true Sueetie Content Part Control, which in the v3.3 release is using the very latest version of TinyMCE.  As with Content Parts and Sueetie CMS Content Page Controls, the familiar pencil icon is displayed on the product description.  The Pencil is visible to members of the MarketplaceAdministrator group or those you specify in the control’s "Roles" property.

Here’s a screenshot of the popup editor.  You’ll notice one additional Marketplace bonus: the ability to change the product’s price.  When designing the control I felt that the two product elements you’ll want to update are the product’s description and price. The beauty of the Sueetie Content Part Control is that it’s easily extendable as we see here.

As with the new Product Tagging control, the product is re-indexed after any changes are made with the Product Content Part Control.  So update away!

More marketplace updates are coming.  See you again soon.
