Well we haven't entirely fulfilled this feature request, we have helped it along in a big way by adding a new simple macro, editPageProperties.

You can read the instructions for using this macro in the docs, at <http://www.free-conversant.com/free-conversant/support/docs/simplemacros#editPageProperties>.

Essentially, just put this macro somewhere in all of your templates. Admins will then see a link to the correct page in the structure editor, if it's a structure page. If the person viewing the page is not an admin, or if the page is not in the site structure (any discussion group page, for example), then the macro is simply replaced with the "empty string" (no text).

This simple macro doesn't seem to be working for me. I've added it to my Default
