Instant Edit Plugin Idea

I think it would be great to be able to edit topics/sections like this (using AJAX):


The idea is to double-click on a text area to edit it. Easy and convenient, I think SectionalEditPlugin already accomplishes part of this. But it doesnt use the double clicking, and it requires <section>-tags to be inserted to the topic. The topic usually has sections already in place naturally, as it includes headings of different levels, table cells, bullets, empty lines, etc.

This would come in handy in fast error fixing after topic is saved, without having to load the edit page again.

InlineEditPlugin was written to do this sort of thing - it was found in usability testing, that double click was not really ideal, but otherwise, yes.

I'm probably going to re-write it using the YahooUserInterfaceContrib, as that will make it much more Flickr like.

That would be really great! Let me know if I can help somehow, writing docs etc. I was thinking YahooUserInterfaceContrib as well, you can already find a proper script from the YahooUserInterfaceContribExamples page.
