Contrary to many tutorials on the web, adding custom code to the theme’s functions.php file is not a good solution because if you change themes or the theme has an update, the custom code is lost. Which is why I always recommend the Code Snippets plugin.
I installed the Code Snippets plugin and added the code there. I had to use a different shortcode and function name. After I did that, the link showed up like it should.
So, that said, for some reason it is not working from the theme’s function.php file. I looked at the code and it seems right. I’ll leave it to your to delete the code from the functions.php file. I didn’t want to remove it without permission.
As a suggestion, I would move the link to the account page, since it is only a link.
Hope that helps!02/26/2016 at 9:52 am #366953
I’m sorry but this is broken again.
this page with the shortcode [connections_edit_link] does not produce a form:
Is this a result of the recent upgrade? How do I fix it? The login details I gave you should still work.

In the Code Snippet you changed the shortcode name from
[connections_edit_link_snippet]. When you rename a shortcode, you also need to update the shortcode on the page. I edit the page so the shortcode is
[connections_edit_link_snippet]. I suggest not changing the shortcode name in the snippet.02/26/2016 at 10:04 am #366956
Seems to be working now. Did you fix it?02/26/2016 at 10:05 am #366957
