Hi,

I have a View with edit post links inside the view, for users to edit the info in an edit post form. On the staging site noted above the edit post links are displaying fine, here is the view page, you can see the "would you like to edit...?" inside the loop, with the link "Edit Here" displaying: hidden link

However, I recently ported the staging to live site, and for some reason the link with the words "Edit Here" have disappeared. Would you be able to take a look and see ?: hidden link

Hello,

I assume we are talking about the editing post form link, you need to enable permissions for specific user roles to edit the posts in Toolset Access Control settings, see our document:

Yes I am referring to the editing post form link, however, I never installed Access Control, and never had it working on staging so this is an issue completely different than that. Is there anything else that would be making it not display the link?

By default, guest user(non-logged-in users) won't be able to edit posts, you need to install Access plugin to grant permission for guest user, please follow the document I mentioned above to setup the permissions:

If you still need assistance for it, please provide a test site with the same problem, fill below private message box with login details, I need a live website to test and debug

I'm confused, I never used Toolet Access on the staging, and it worked perfectly. If you look at the edit post forms itself, Toolset clearly says that by default all users are able to access, see image attached. Why would I need to do anything different over here? I really think it is some other issue..

Thanks

Nope, I don't think it is default setting, as I mentioned above, by default, nobody wants non-logged-in user(Guests) to edit the posts, unless you changed the permissions.
