Hi there,

• I have custom post type "member profiles"
• I have Toolset forms to both create new and edit existing "member profiles"
• I need to add a link to each member profile on the front end for it to be edited using the Edit form
• In the Gutenberg UI, I cannot find how to create that link so that I can copy and paste it into Elementor Single member Profile template

I have searched through lots of support tickets, and your documentation, and it does not give sufficient information.

Please, please help.

Best wishes,
Andrew.

Hi Andrew,

Thank you for contacting us and I'd be happy to assist.

To make the edit form's link work from inside the Elementor's single member Profile template, you can follow these steps:

1. Please make sure that in this Elementor template, a "Post Content" module exists to show the content of the current post.

2. Create a Toolset content template and assign it as a template for single pages of "member profiles" posts.

3. Next, you'll create another Toolset content template, that will include the shortcode for the edit form:
https://toolset.com/documentation/getting-started-with-toolset/publish-content-from-the-front-end/forms-for-editing/#2-create-a-content-template-for-displaying-the-editing-form

4. The actual steps to insert the edit form link in the content template created in step 2 are shown in the same guide's point #3:
https://toolset.com/documentation/getting-started-with-toolset/publish-content-from-the-front-end/forms-for-editing/#3-insert-link-to-the-content-template-that-displays-the-form

I hope this helps and please let me know if you need any further assistance around this.

regards,
Waqar
