I installed the Panels in-place editor which, in principle, should allow me to edit page layouts on the front-end.

But the two big buttons "Customize this Page” and “Change Layout” which should show up at the bottom of the page in the footer, are simply missing; I have a blank footer bar. I have already set the default renderer to IPE as well as given appropriate permissions. Any ideas on how to fix this - get the IPE buttons?? There are no missing dependencies AFAIK, but the evidence suggests I am probably wrong..

  • First check your permissions, is the user you are logged in with allowed to Use the Panels In-Place Editor?

  • Yep, permissions are in place.
