Won't work on my system (4.7.10) and replicated on Wordpress sandbox.

I've created a very simple profile: last name & first name. All fields are expose publicly, searchable, results column etc Profile ticked "include profile edit links in search results?

Using link from profile "use - listings mode" while logged in as admin. Ie "http://wpmaster.demo.civicrm.org/civicrm/?page=CiviCRM&q=civicrm/profile&gid=14&reset=1"

Search works fine but listing only has view option - no edit

Same when using [civicrm component="profile" gid="68" mode="search" hijack="0"]

Am I missing something? Same setup works fine on Drupal site

  • have you double checked your CMS permissions?

  • sorry. i misread that. depends how WP does permissions. Being an 'admin' in Drupal doesn't guarantee all permissions, but being user=1 does.

Looks like a WordPress/Civi permissions issue - have you checked at /wp-admin/admin.php?page=CiviCRM&q=civicrm%2Fadmin%2Faccess%2Fwp-permissions&reset=1

  • “logged in as admin”

I thought it might help get towards an answer if we get some screenshots in here (which I can't do in Comment)

enter image description here

Having tweaked the Name and Address Profile on wp demo site to do the right things, and if i search at http://wpmaster.demo.civicrm.org/civicrm/?page=CiviCRM&q=civicrm/profile&gid=1&reset=1 for 'g' i get the above, and I get a View link but no Edit link.

Pls paste equivalent for drupal

  • Of course I don't have access to CMS permissions on demo so can't rule that out.
