The Add here button was not displayed in Experience Editor for a non-admin user

In one of our project I was using Sitecore 8.0 150621 revision.

And I was getting an issue on Experience Editor for a non-admin user, user unable to see Add Here button when click on component button on tab panel.

So I decided to search the cause of this.

I found below link about this –

The Add here button was not displayed for the MVC placeholder in Experience Editor for a non-admin user. This has been fixed. (51676, 435944)

So we decided to ask this from Sitecore Support and got the answer from there –

There is no easy way to fix it by implementing a patch, however, as a workaround you can grant your user the write-access to the /sitecore/layout/Placeholder Settings/* items: http://screencast.com/t/tHvPOC6PZTSq.

After doing this our issue was resolved.

Happy Coding 🙂
