I uploaded a site to a shared hosting environment and suddenly I can't use the edit links in the Page Manager UI any more. As you can see in the screenshot, they've simply disappeared. I can click the triangle and get a disable link but no edit.

I cleared the cache multiple times to no effect. I then made a database dump of the server mysql and imported it into a local copy and experienced the same problem, even after clearing the cache multiple times. I then turned off all of the aggregation options on the Performance configuration page and cleared the cache again, but no change.

Is this a typical problem or something I have uniquely done to screw things up?

page manager UI glitch

EDIT: Upon further inspection, I noticed something else weird. I am able to access the pages by typing in the URL manually, but when I go to edit a piece of custom content, the Edit option, which is usually just under Disable this pane, is missing:

no edit link

  • can you access the page edit by typing the url in the browser directly?

Found the problem-- I had been lazy and replaced the "Edit" translation string with a space to remove it from some of the pages on the site, forgetting that it would remove "Edit" from all pages on the site. Restoring the string fixed the problem.
