Would you find it possible to extend the views_embed_view() function by a parameter to include the contextual links? I'm not an expert to tell, but if it's only possible, please do. Thanks

Which display do you use form views_embed_view? If you use the embed display it should afaik actually work.

Thanks for getting back on this. I'm not sure though I'm getting the point of your question. I have created a display of type "Page" (out of: Attachment, Block, Page, Feed, System). Then I simply use <?php print views_embed_view('view_machine_name', 'display_machine_name') ?>. The contextual links do not appear. Is that correct way of embedding? Does this answer your question?

You should use the "embed" or the default display if you embed a view somewhere else, but the page display type is not meant to be embedded and both contextual links work as expected.

Sorry if I sound ignorant, but this seems to be the crucial piece of info - what do you mean by "embed display"? Is there an option in the UI that fixes page display type as "embed"?

There is an "embed" display, see "Show the embed display in the ui." under admin/structure/views/settings.

Yep, it definitely works! I remember seeing that option but skipping it as unexplainable ;-) This might be an answer to this issue of mine: http://drupal.org/node/1839442

Now, if there was only a way to convert existing displays into embed style... I have a few displays in one View, all of them are meant to be embedded. They differ quite a bit, so Master will not be an option for that.

Two options come to mind:
- something like display conversion (clone display + change its type)
- a checkbox for each display [x] Allow embedding
Which one would make sense to you most?
