so i got my wpmudev subscription after my trial expired.
and i finally convinced the client to move the project site out of the clunky multisite.
and its so worth it.
so many weird issues are gone now. the site is twice as fast and buddypress does not want to eat my soul anymore. yet one issue still remains.
the page to edit questions and answers still does not work and sends me back to the index.
(select question from the 2nd yellow area)
edit link looks like this:
(99% default template - only commented out voting and changed h1 to h2)
action links for question dont show. both with my theme and twentysixteen
its a fresh wp install
i already opened support access.
could you please have a look?
now i see how nice this form is with a matching account + wpmu dashboard + site installation.
