Hi everyone,

I hope you can help me with this. I created a new sub-theme under omega and the view, edit, delete tabs are not appearing in any of the pages on my frontend. When I enable other themes though it appears for them so I'm quite sure it's a bug from omega. I have both context and delta installed just so you guys know. I've attached a screenshot of my current configuration for my sub-theme where I have the tabs enabled as well as a page where they are supposed to appear. I tried disabling and enabling the tabs through the sub-theme settings but nothing's working for me. I hope you can help me with this. It's really quite frustrating just trying to figure this out since I have a community that's also waiting for the fix.

Thanks in advance!

I had the same problem but found them in the block structure under the block titled "tabs". I enabled the block under content. They show up now but there are 2 sets of them. I don't know why 2 of them are showing. I don't know if there is a better way to have them show up but so far that is all I could find. If there is a better answer I would love to hear it.

I also have a similar problem. I'm using Omega with a subtheme and a custom grid. View and Edit (and any other tabs) do not appear. At first, I thought it was D7 changes, but then noticed that there is no indication that these should be missing.

My Blocks do not have a Tabs block that can be moved.

If anyone has any advice/help, it would really be appreciated!

EDIT: Found in this issue: #1239944: Missing HTML in content region that this can be caused by lack of content in the Content region. For my site, I added a block to Content and used CSS to display:none to it. Worked like a charm!

I've noticed that when you use Omega Tools to create your subtheme, you should use Omega (admin/appearance/omega-tools/add) you should use Omega as the base theme (not Alpha). Then choose your Starterkit. Using Omega as the base theme (rather than Alpha) solved this for me.

I went on a deep code dive to track down the cause of this issue, and found that Alpha pulled it out to a theme configuration setting. My tabs were simply toggled off. Enabled at /appearance/settings/[custom_subtheme_name] in the "Toggle advanced elements" section of Layout configuration. This doesn't seem like an "advanced" element to me, but there it is.

Issue summary:View changes

For me it was due to using Context as my main block management system. I had to set "main page content" in the content region in the CORE blocks management page. Not context! if you don't assign the main content block in the CORE management page, omega will think there is no content, hence not output the tabs.

Fine with me, @jhinxed as the original reporter do you still have this issue?
