Cannor access Edit tab


I am developing a new EPi site in CMS6 R2, and yesterday a strange error started happening. When I log in to edit the site (/secret/cms/edit), I can see the page tree, and can browse, but I can't see the "Edit tab" on the pages. I am a member of both the editor and admin groups. I can access the Admin Mode and I can edit the page types.

What could be wrong?

And another tab that is missing is "Display Options", under "My settings". So I can't for instance change what language to use in the Edit mode.

Sounds like you're missing the virtual role CmsEditors in EPiServerFramework.config. Or it is misconfigured.

Hi Johan.

My virtualRoles config looks like this, I don't see any issues with this. Am I missing something?

 <virtualRoles replacePrincipal="true">
      <add name="Administrators" type="EPiServer.Security.WindowsAdministratorsRole, EPiServer.Framework" />
      <add name="Everyone" type="EPiServer.Security.EveryoneRole, EPiServer.Framework" />
      <add name="Authenticated" type="EPiServer.Security.AuthenticatedRole, EPiServer.Framework" />
      <add name="Anonymous" type="EPiServer.Security.AnonymousRole, EPiServer.Framework" />
      <add roles="WebAdmins, Administrators, Extranet.Administrators"
        mode="Any" name="CmsAdmins" type="EPiServer.Security.MappedRole, EPiServer.Framework" />
      <add roles="WebEditors" mode="Any" name="CmsEditors" type="EPiServer.Security.MappedRole, EPiServer.Framework" />
      <add name="Creator" type="EPiServer.Security.CreatorRole, EPiServer" />

Got any solution to this? I am having similar problem, though I can see the Edit tab but when I click on it I get internal server error.

I've got the same issue (edit tab greyed out but can access admin - also checked CmsEditors virtual role) in a test environment using SQL membership.. I don't suppose any of you remember what it turned out to be?
