XF 1.5 Edit account details option missing on account confirmation

Hi,

I've noticed that when a new user lands on the account confirmation page after clicking the email link, they only get the link to the home page.

In the register_confirm template, the code suggests they should also have a link allowing them to edit their account details. However, this link is absent.

Code:
<xen:if is="{$canEditProfile}">
                <li><a href="{xen:link account}">{xen:phrase edit_your_account_details}</a></li>
            </xen:if>

Permissions are set so users can edit their profiles, so why isn't this link appearing?

It's very likely the permissions may be coming from before the account is confirmed and you may have restricted profile editing there.

Easiest resolution would be to remove the if from around that block if it's not relevant to you.

OK thanks for your reply :)
