Restricting inline editing in Episerver CMS


Hi Team 

Is there any option available to disable inline page editing  for CMSEditors ?  

We only want to give page edit option using smarforms?

Is this Episerver or Ektron?

Episerver. i am planning to use equivalent feature of smartforms in episerver

I don't think there is an easy way to do this within episerver. When you say smart form I am guessing you want to hide the "editor mode" which allows in-context editing and display the "All Properties" view only?

Hi Kalyan,

The following code disables on-page editing view for ProductPage (example from Alloy):

public class ProductPageUiDescriptor : UIDescriptor<ProductPage>
    public ProductPageUiDescriptor()
        DefaultView = CmsViewNames.AllPropertiesView;

Excellent this is exactly what we are looking for, Just checking Is there a way inline-editing feature can be disabled for specific group?

I think it does not make sense if you abandon inline editing for a group but this group still has permissions to edit inside edit mode. I think the best solution that fits for your needs is to limit by permissions.
