Only You Can Use The Quick Edit Links, On Your Blog

People worry about the Quick Edit icons - sometimes, needlessly.
I was logged out - but I can still see the edit tools!
or
My visitor logs show people clicking on the "rearrange" links!!
Fortunately, no matter what can be seen - or may be clicked - only administrators will get any result.

I use the "rearrange" links for many blogs, frequently. The links are unbelievably useful, when instructing a blog owner how to remove a misbehaving gadget on her / his blog.

Some blog owners wonder if I should be providing a Quick Edit link, in an open forum topic. So, I'll provide a challenge, for you unbelievers.

Here's a gadget - "Search Me, Direct" - from the top of the sidebar, on this blog.


Here's the gadget, "Search Me, Direct", from this blog.

That's the Quick Edit link, for "Search Me, Direct". Click on the link, and see what you get. Am I being wantonly foolish?
OMG, Chuck, you dare people to hack your blog!



If I'm not logged in, as a blog administrator, this is all that I see.

(No, I'm not so wantonly foolish, that I would show you my email address!)
If you get anything else, be kind.


That's what my blog generally looks like, to my readers - and sometimes, to me.

Regardless if the tools can be seen, only I can use them. And even if the tools on your blog can be seen by somebody other than you, only you can use them.

Dude, hit me with a comment!
