One of our clients has made the shift from SharePoint 2010 and SharePoint 2013. They pointed out that there is no longer a link to the Recycle Bin in the Quick Launch (Site Contents is still there, but the Recycle Bin is not).
Adding a link to the Quick Launch
I also noted another person with the same issue where they were advised to add it to the Quick Launch. Adding it to the Quick Launch through normal navigation settings will take a long time for my client because they have many sites (and a few different site collections).
Adding a link to the Master Page as seen in v4.master
I have tried a solution whereby you can add SharePoint:SPLinkButton as seen in the v4.master, but this does not work for me and causes the root home page to display a never ending error string (fix one error, shows another, makes me run around in circles).
Question: Is there a way to add a link back in via the master page that also considers the permissions?
I'd only like users who have permission to delete items to be able to see the recycle bin.
