I installed connections followed by “form” and every thing worked fine. Then I installed “contact” and the edit form would no longer show up. I deleted “contact” and it still did not work so I deleted and reinstalled “Form” but still does not work. How do I allow my viewers to edit the directory?12/12/2016 at 9:50 am #403278
Can you please share a link to your directory page on your site? Thanks.
Here’s the link to the documentation on how to turn of the submit entry Form action link. This is all you need to do in order to have the link show up. After you enable the link, it will display above your directory. When clicked, it’ll take the user to the form where they submit an entry to the directory.
Hope this helps!12/12/2016 at 12:00 pm #403295Yehoshua SoferGuest
The link to my director is http://connections-pro.com/support/topic/no-form-edit-button/#post-403278
As you will see it shows a “Submit new entry” but not a “edit entry” link. I reviewed everything I could find and did what I was told and it still will not show up. Thanks

The link that you shared is to my previous reply. Can you please share a link to your directory page?
There will be no edit link. If you what those who submit entries to be able to edit their submissions then you also need the Link extension. The Form extension on its own only allows anonymous submissions and provide frontend editing support for the site admin. So when you are logged in, you should see an edit link. Your site visitors will not.
If I misunderstand the issue you are having, I apologize!12/12/2016 at 3:03 pm #403331Yehoshua SoferGuest
The link to my directory page is http://actingfree.com/members-2/
I purchased LINK and installed it but I still can not figure out how to let the viewers see the “edit Link” so they can edit their own postings. Sorry for the headache. As you can probablly tell I have very limited knowlege when it comes to doing these sort of things. I can see the LINK option in the settings but it really does not explain how to use it.

Thanks for the but I am unable to view the site because it requires a login. If you give me a login, I’ll take a look. The login details can be posted here as a private reply.
To setup Link, follow the configuration instructions. Basically just four checkboxes you need to enable.12/12/2016 at 3:57 pm #403343YehoshuaGuestThis reply has been marked as private.12/12/2016 at 4:27 pm #403346
Ok, I can see the site now. Did you follow the configuration instructions for Link that I gave you the link to.
If you did, did you create a user account for any of the entries in your directory and did you login as that user? Only the user will see the edit link.
