How to get the full developer menu ? Edit menus not showing up.

on 7/30/14, 5:56 AM 2,018 views

While all the tutorials shows a menu list with a dozen of lines, I can't see the "Edit FromView", "Edit Action", .. actually all the edit modes.

I only have stuff like :

  • Debug View#517
  • View Log (perm_read)
  • Toggle Form Layout Online
  • Set Defaults
  • JS Tests
  • View Fields
  • Fields View Get
  • Manage Filters

But no "Edit..." menus...

I activated the developer's mode, I have the technical accessrights. 

Thank you !

These EDIT views are available only for Super User account i.e. ADMIN user.

If you need to show these views for other users also, then remove the if condition in template definition @ web/addons/web/static/src/xml/base.xml (Line no. 554)

Thank you for your fast answer, but can we create more super users, for development purpose ? Otherwise only one account is able to develop directement on the website, right ?
