mich h asked 1 year ago
Hello! I would like some help with using an edit function in a view.  When I create a table view I am given an assigned shortcode (such as [display-frm-data id=267]) and in the editor the boxes for 'add above content' and 'add below content' are there but no editable 'content' area (that is filled with a pre-generated table).  I would like to add edit in place and one tutorial says to place this in the content box:

<div id="frm_container_[id]">
Content here
[editlink label="Edit" prefix="frm_container_"] I do not know how to add this in the content box.  I have tried different ways to do this but no success so far.  I want to display a view for current user only so they can edit their own form submissions. Any help is appreciated!

Make a new column in your table view and call it Edit.  Then paste your edit in place code in that column.

Hi Walter and thank you for the reply! This did work! One thing I did run into is that I was not able to to edit the column with a filter in place. I had to delete the filter, then add the text, and reapply the filter. I still have to do that to make changes so I am not sure if that is a system thing or something on my end. Either way, your suggestion worked so thank you so much.
