In this blog, we will see why edit link is missing in Top Navigation bar in SharePoint Online/Office 365
1.Edit links available only on the following site templates
- Team Site
- Publishing site
- Personal Site
- Project site.
2.SharePoint edit links permission might be the issue. You should have “Edit “permission level at-least. For Contributors and Visitors , you wont see them.
3.If your sub-site is inheriting navigation from Parent site, the link “Edit Links” in top navigation will not appear. To enable edit links SharePoint 2013 – Your site shouldn’t inherit navigation from the parent site
4. Its available only for Structural Navigation in publishing sites.
Happy SharePointing Folks 🙂
