Editing the Quick Launch on an Enterprise Wiki site

Hi all,

Just a small thing I ran against today and I didn’t find an article on the first page of Google, so here goes.

Problem

Administrators cannot edit the Quick Launch of an enterhttps://wordpress.com/post/smindreau.wordpress.com/775prise wiki (sub)site inline:

enterprisewiki-editlinksmissing

As you can see, the familiar “EDIT LINKS” link is not there. This behavior was present in SharePoint Online as well.

Solution

Luckily, you can still change this under Site settings > Navigation (assuming the publishing feature is turned on, as the Enterprise Wiki is a publishing site site template).

Make sure you select “Structural Navigation” under Current Navigation:

enterprisewiki-structuralnavigation

Just below you’ll be able to change the actual links, which could also allow you to build a table of contents for your wiki:

enterprisewiki-editlinks

Click OK to save.

Result

Look at that, we’ve added our link to the Quick Launch:

Note that in publishing sites, you will always be able to use this longer approach. For some reason, the basic standard “EDIT LINKS” just aren’t showing.
