Hello

I'm having difficulty making a [toolset-edit-post-link ] work.

I have a Layout called 'my-children' and in this layout is a view (id:16500) which lists CPT 'People' that belong to the current logged in user. In the loop that is returned I have a edit post link to a layout called 'reinstate-my-old-child'(id:16508) and in this layout ids an edit form for the CPT 'Person'that was in the view loop(id:16500).

The problem is that the link isn't working and anything inside of the link doesn't render.

Here is the view code in my Layout 'my-children'

[wpv-layout-start]
	[wpv-items-found]
	<!-- wpv-loop-start -->
<div class="row">
		<wpv-loop>
			<div class="col-sm-2 outer-div">
           
              [toolset-edit-post-link layout_slug='reinstate-my-old-child' target='self']
<div class="inner-div-person">
<div class="inner-icon"><i class="vc_icon_element-icon fa fa-user fa-1x"></i></div>
<div class="inner-title-person">%%POST_TITLE%%</div>
</div>
[/toolset-edit-post-link]
  </div>
		</wpv-loop></div>

	<!-- wpv-loop-end -->
	[/wpv-items-found]
	[wpv-no-items-found]
		<strong>[wpml-string context="wpv-views"][/wpml-string]</strong>
	[/wpv-no-items-found]
[wpv-layout-end]

Please can you tell me if I'm doing something wrong

Best regards

Geoff

Hi Geoff,

Thank you for getting in touch.

Does the link work by itself when done like this ?

[toolset-edit-post-link layout_slug='reinstate-my-old-child' target='self'] edit %%POST_TITLE%% [/toolset-edit-post-link]

OR

[toolset-edit-post-link layout_slug='reinstate-my-old-child' target='self'] edit post [/toolset-edit-post-link]

Could you try this only and let me know the result .

Thanks,
Shane

Hi Geoff,

Thank you for the credentials.

I tested this on your site and it was working fine.

[toolset-edit-post-link layout_slug='reinstate-my-old-child' target='self']           
<div class="inner-div-person">
<div class="inner-icon"><i class="vc_icon_element-icon fa fa-user fa-1x"></i></div>
<div class="inner-title-person">%%POST_TITLE%%</div>
</div>[/toolset-edit-post-link]

The link generates and i'm able to click to the edit page. Could you record what happens on your end?

Thanks,
Shane

Hi Shane

This is strange...when I log in with the details I set up for Toolset I can see the content and the link works fine as you suggest, however when I log in as a different user the content or link isn't there..could this be a permissions problem with user roles?

I have attached a screenshot of both logins...

Best regards
Geoff

Hi Geoff,

It could be.

Could you let me know what user role you are using to log in where you are not able to edit the post ?

Thanks,
Shane

Hi Shane

The user role that is unable to edit switches between 'member' and 'subscribed member'

Many thanks

Geoff
