I have searched for solutions to this for a while now but have found nothing.

I recently set up the latest Feedback module (6.4.0) on my DNN 6.2.5 site. After I have configured the permissions to allow certain roles and users to "Edit Module", "Moderate Feedback Posts", and "Manage Feedback Lists".  These users do not have Page Editor rights nor can they.  My problem is, the DNN Control Panel is missing from these users' feedback page, so they have no way to switch between View/Edit, in order to access the Moderation page.  With other such modules/permissions, the Control Panel is displayed with the mode selector to change between View/Edit.  With the Feedback module, this is not happening.  Any ideas what I could be doing wrong or what I can try to fix it?

unless you install a container with a default action button (my preferred solution) you need to go to Admin > Site Settings, section Usability and grant access to the control panel for module editors.

Thank you for the quick response, Sebastian. My Admin settings are already configured to allow Module Editors to access the Control Panel, so I am assuming there is something wrong with my site or with this module. I am a novice at skinning DNN so can you elaborate a little on your suggested method of installing a container with a default Action Button? How would I go about finding such a container? I tried a few searches but nothing is jumping out at me.

One of the default containers should do it. You shouldn't need module editors to have access to the control panel (I believe). I don't on my site which is 6.2.5, and when they hover over the module, the manage box appears, from where they can to moderate.

Thanks Roger. The problem for me is that the Manage button does not appear on hover for the Feedback moderators. The problem is they are in "View" mode by default, and without the Control Panel there is not (I think) a way for them to switch to "Edit" mode, to activate the Manage button. Is there perhaps another way for them to switch to Edit mode without accessing the Control Panel?
