Display the edit link for the bookmark with an ID of 10.

Display the edit link for the current bookmark within a loop of bookmarks.

Add the edit bookmark link to a custom HTML structure for better styling.

$bookmark_id = 15;

echo '<div class="edit-bookmark-link"><a href="' . esc_url( $edit_link ) . '">Edit Bookmark</a></div>';

Only show the edit bookmark link if the user is logged in and has permission to edit bookmarks.

$bookmark_id = 20;
if ( current_user_can( 'manage_links' ) ) {

Display the edit bookmark link with custom text instead of the default “Edit This”.

$bookmark_id = 25;
$edit_link = get_edit_bookmark_link( $bookmark_id );
echo '<a href="' . esc_url( $edit_link ) . '">Edit this Bookmark</a>';
