Assuming this is in regards to the Link addon… I would suggest going over the Role Capabilities to make sure they are setup correctly for how you are using Connections. Here’s the link to the docs:
Now, judging from the link you supplied as an example… It looks like you are adding the the edit link to the Wp Menus. Here’s the link to the FAQ which goes over that in detail:

OK – So I am not sure if you are familiar but I have the two directories split. Associate Members and Members. The http://%entry_view_url% works on Members but will not work on associate members. Not sure if this has to do with the exclude short code or the split the directory.

%entry_view_url%URL slug only works in an WordPress Menu as a Custom Link. The
exlude_categoryor splitting the directory across two pages will not have an effect on whether or not the link is created.
So, if you are not getting a real and valid link, then there is another issue. Please review the setup against the doc links I shared in my last reply.
Also, perhaps you could explain in more detail on what you mean by does not work? With more details I might be able to give you an exact working solution.
