I have a view displaying fields from one node.

Is it possible to display a link for a user to edit the node if they are logged in and have the appropriate permission to edit? Something similar to the tabs with edit displayed for a regular themed node would be nice.

In Views, there is a field you can add called Node: Edit link that will display a link to the edit page for the node, taking into account the user's permissions.

Node edit link

  • Thanks, that was pretty obvious. I'm surprised I've never seen that before.

  • Do you know what permission settings need to be enabled in order for that link to show up in a custom role?
