I'm new to Drupal 8 and can't figure out a way to show the edit contextual links for content displayed through the Views module. This was simple in Drupal 7, but in Drupal 8, a view only shows the links for editing; there are no edit or quickedit links for the content.

It does seem to work with nodes and taxonomy terms, but not custom blocks.

  • Try to add operations field in view. It will provide edit,delete operations links in drop down. – Ajay Reddy Mar 27 '18 at 7:34
  • Does not work since I'm not using fields. – iamfredrik Mar 27 '18 at 7:39

  • Yes, but it doesn't work with custom blocks. Nodes and taxonomy terms work. – iamfredrik Mar 27 '18 at 7:45
  • Is there any possibility to change with fields rather than showing full/default mode? – Ajay Reddy Mar 27 '18 at 7:47
  • No, I will have to change the content to nodes instead of blocks. – iamfredrik Mar 27 '18 at 7:49
