How do I disable live edit?

I don't want the "show Live Edit" or "Hide Life Edit" icons to show up on web page. How do I disable that function?

when you add a content area to the page, it will add code to for the content area similar to:

<?php echo WA_getCMSContent($database_PowerCMSConnection, $PowerCMSConnection, 'content page', 'content area'); ?>


add an additional argument ",true" to the end to hide live edit:
<?php echo WA_getCMSContent($database_PowerCMSConnection, $PowerCMSConnection, 'content page', 'content area',true); ?>

Hi Jason,

I saw that post earlier and did add true to the argument. The live edit icon is gone from the editable content area, but still shows up at the bottom of my web browser. Visible on Firefox on Mac and IE on PC; not however, on Safari on Mac and Firefox on PC?

in the WA_CMS/WA_CMS.css change:

#cms-admin-controls {
left: 30px;
}

to:
#cms-admin-controls {
display: none;
left: 30px;
}

Hi Jason,
That did the trick! It must have taken the server a bit to update. Gone now. Thanks so much!

I'll need to troubleshoot directly, see the private message section.

Hi Jason,

I edited my last post. It must have been the server taking a bit to update. Thanks!
