I haven't tried the Editview or editablefields modules for Drupal 6, but neither is available yet for Drupal 7 anyway.

I'd like to provide a way for my users to edit lots of nodes and node fields on one screen, presented preferably to views. I'd rather they don't have to keep following a link (contextual or otherwise) to another edit form.

Any suggestions?

Try editablefields-d7; as reported by the project page the module is a Drupal 7 port of editable fields.
The project is a sandbox project, which means it doesn't support releases, yet, and drupal.org doesn't automatically create the archive containing the module code; this means the code should be considered experimental, and you get the code using git, using git clone http://git.drupal.org/sandbox/damz/1130436.git editablefields_d7 or the link to the snapshot archive.

  • Thanks - I'll be watching that space. I tried it out and couldn't get it to work, but it's a sandbox, of course, and makes no claims of stability or anything else. Thanks for doing that DamZ!

  • Yay, so there are some restrictions, but it does work. It's a formatter, so you have to select a formatter (editable (HTML) or editable(AJAX). And the fact that it's a formatter means that it can't be used on titles. DamZ suggests that title module might work, but that it's in a bit of a raw state.

    At this point it may be better to link directly to drupal.org/project/editablefields 7.x-1.0-alpha1 is now available as a Recommended Release.

The drupal community is working hard to make WYSYWYG edit-in-place functionality (using the Aloha project) be built into drupal 8 read about spark initiative. For the meanwhile, people are telling the spark D7 distribution should do it visually (I haven't tried it myself yet), as well as the modules above (non-WYSYWYG).


Recently, there's a new module that's now a project that allows you to edit multiple fields at once:


Editable Views lets you create Views where the fields can be edited. Fields show both the current value and a form to edit it. A 'Save' button allows saving of all the entities shown in the View.
