Problems with edit and view tabs, and "display" tab is missing. Plone 4


I have a Plone 4 installed with the following configuration:

Add-on Configuration
Disqus settings Disqus settings
JQueryUI JQueryUI
Social Bookmarks Social Bookmarks

Version Overview
Plone 4.3.11 (4314)
CMF 2.2.9
Zope 2.13.24
Python 2.7.12 (default, Mar 12 2017, 20:06:44) [GCC 4.8.5 20150623 (Red Hat 4.8.5-11)]
PIL 3.4.2 (Pillow)

There are some issues with the menus for logged-in members. For example, the edit and contents menu tabs do not change regardless of which is selected.

Also there are no "display" variables available in either "view" or "edit" modes.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you.


The Display menu would appear only if there is more than one available view for the content item.

For example, I have a folder that contains a number of images but no display menu is available even if I choose contents or edit from the menu.

It sounds like one of those add-ons has messed up your site. You might need to remove them one by one to try to narrow down the perpetrator.

Maybe your user does not have the permissions to change the view.
