I have joomla 3.4.1 and F2C Pro 6.10.0

I have read and applied the ideas here and here.

However, what I want is to replace the Joomla Edit button at its exact locaton. Is that possible?

I've added a "rough" example to show you how it works.
The example is based on Joomla 3.4.1 and the attached file (icons.php) should be placed here:
<your website root>/templates/<your template>/html/layouts/joomla/content/icons.php

The example works, but my implementation of JHtml::('icon.edit') needs some rework. This is just some quick to for demonstration purposes ;)

Yes and no ;)

With the current plugin the position of the edit button will be defined by the F2C template, while the Joomla edit button is "outside" of the article.

Replacing the Joomla edit button would require a Joomla template override.
The F2C plugin will not run out of the box in this template override.

But I think it is possible to copy the the plugin code to the override and modify it so it works in the override. This will require some custom coding.

You had some excellent instructions that worked perfectly for the older version of joomla (3.4 and earlier)

Is it possible to apply the same principles to 3.4.1? Perhaps an override of layouts/joomla/content/icons.php?

It works perfectly :) You're the man!! :)

Does this still need the plugin, or does it work independently?
Accepted Answer Pending Moderation

In this case you don't need the plugin. The code I sent you is based on the plugin code.
