You may never need this tip, but I recently ran into an issue where my article page's Edit Page button stopped working in SharePoint 2013 (probably something I messed up with the master page... I'll fix it later). I Googled and Binged everywhere, but couldn't find how to switch an article page to edit mode.

All you need to do is append your page URL with the following parameters:

?DisplayMode=Design&ControlMode=Edit

So if your page is:
http://mysharepointserver/pages/tdamnededitbutton.aspx
You would write:
http://mysharepointserver/pages/tdamnededitbutton.aspx?DisplayMode=Design&ControlMode=Edit

I hope it saves someone else from having to search.

Did anyone have any problems with the Edit button not working? Share below!
