I have сreated custom site definition for SharePoint 2013, but for some reasons Edit Links command is not visible in the Quick Launch and Top Navigation menu. These commands available by default if I create a new Team Site. Is anybody know which feature I need activate in order to enable this cute functionality in my custom site template?

Not sure of the solution, but the same problem exists when you create a site based on the Blank site template. – Carl C Mar 19 '13 at 20:57
Also on Publishing Portal template – Mariusz Ignatowicz Dec 10 '13 at 12:38

The only way how to enable them in Publishing sites is to give users "Manage Web Site" permissions.

The "Edit Links" with drag-and-drop is only supported by certain site definitions: see here

I have one site (on my dev machine) with WebTemplate BLANKINTERNET that has "Edit Links" and another site (test machine) that does not have "Edit links" – Robert Apr 28 '15 at 13:29
