I am using SharePoint 2013 and I have create an enterprise wiki site as a subsite. I would like to edit the navigation links on the left hand side bar (aka quick launch) but I read that subsites will not have the "edit link" button for customization.

I have tried changing the settings under "site settings > navigation", but nothing changed.

This is what I'm seeing on my subsite
