No link / blogroll management buttons in Safari (4 posts)

    When I first installed WordPress and looked around in the options, I was confused by the Links page. I later realized this was because many buttons are missing--most notably the delete button. At least I think there should be buttons there. I'm using Safari 2.0. Does anyone know what's going on?

    I already fixed a similar problem with the quicktags on the Write page.

    Edit: I'm using a theme I'm working on myself, derived from one called Bionic Jive with contributions from Kubrick.

    I think you may be looking in the wrong place. Under links, manage, there is edit | delete after each link. it's not a button. I see it both in FF and Safari 1.3. It's under the column heading "Action".

    I see the Action column, but there are no links in the subcolumns on each line.

    Thanks for your post--I would have replied sooner, but I thought it would email me when I got a reply.

    I encountered this same problem, and I looked into the PHP to determine the cause.

    You're logged in as some user who has a lower privilege level than the owner of the blogroll links. Most probably, your blogroll links are owned by admin (privilege level 10) and you're logged in as a regular user (privilege level <= 9). In this situation, the PHP code refuses to give you the ability to remove blogroll entries.

    Solution:
    Log out and then log in as 'admin'. Now if you go to the Links>>ManageLinks page you can either delete the unwanted blogroll items or select them all and "Assign ownership" of them to your less powerful user, log back in as yourself, and delete them (the links will be there).

    Hope this helps!
