I've created a custom component that collects user inputted data, and redisplays it in the back end, similar to a contact form. I'm currently trying to set it up so that in both the list and item views, there is a direct link to the Edit User page should a user_id by associated.

Going from my list page doesn't have any problems, but when going from inside an item, I get the error message: You are not permitted to use that link to directly access that page (#user_id).

The link being used to direct to the Edit User page is index.php?option=com_users&view=user&layout=edit&id=*user_id*

Is there something inherently wrong that I'm doing?
