V4.0 one project cannot add links to any workitem, new project I can.. what did I do?

I have a setup on my personal machine with a JTS, 2 repositories.. and it works fine..

except for this one thing.. in my first project on the first server (created with the GA code just after ship)
I can create workitems, and some workitems show links I did create..but I cannot create links now..

none of the existing links show in the links window, but they do in the overview by type..
clicking the overview link number takes you to the detail page for the workitem. click the label (Blocks)
takes u to the links tab..

so. what did I do?  I created a readonly role, but thats not me.  I can create workitems, and comments,
but can't add links..

I copied the stakeholder role to make a new one.

the user having trouble is a project manager role.

thanks.. I looked but that section is marked unedited.

If adding a "read-only" role is the only change you performed, what did you exactly do for that read-only role?

Hi Sam,

have customized the work item editor presentation, the links presentation? If you have done that and have chosen the links to show, you won't see any other but the chosen, but the old created ones will appear in the Quick Information in the Overview as you described.

Hope this helps.
