I'm new to Drupal and despite making progress over the last few days I've hit a problem.
I've got two custom content types linked with an entity reference. I'm using the Views module to create a relationship between them and output the results as a block. The block also uses a contextual filter.
All of this is working ok, I add the block to a page and the content is shown exactly as expected, except I don't get the edit/view tabs that I usually see above nodes.
If I navigate to the node by itself via the 'find content' page the edit tabs are there, but once inside the block they're missing.
I found one post mentioning that edit tabs don't appear as standard when contextual filters are used, but the post was three years old, had no solution or discussion, and and nothing to confirm whether it was actually true.
I know I can add an edit link from the Fields menu in Views but it makes the UI look inconsistent.
I'd appreciate if someone could let me know:
- What exactly stops them from appearing.
- What to read up on to get them working again.
