SharePoint Edit Links (Drag and Drop Navigation) option missing

If you’ve been using SharePoint 2013 you may have noticed the new ability to edit global navigation and quick launch navigation on the fly and to use drag and drop capabilities to create new links. This ability is provided via the ‘EDIT LINKS’ option in both the global navigation and quick launch navigation controls:

However, you may notice that this ability is not available on all webs. This is because the SharePoint navigation provider limits this function to webs that have been created from a specific list of web templates:

  • Team Site – STS#0
  • My Site Host – SPSSITEHOST#0
  • SharePoint Portal Server Personal Space – SPSPERS#0
  • Storage And Social SharePoint Portal Server Personal Space – SPSPERS#2
  • Storage Only SharePoint Portal Server Personal Space – SPSPERS#3
  • Social Only SharePoint Portal Server Personal Space – SPSPERS#4
  • Empty SharePoint Portal Server Personal Space – SPSPERS#5
  • Project Site – PROJECTSITE#0
