bar button not visible in the navigation

Hi guys,

i am developing a ribbit like app with tabbaritems etc.

Now when I press on one of the tabbaritems (like the "friends" tab in the Ribbit app) the added "edit" bar button is not visible in the navigation of this tableviewcontroller.

I think the navigationcontroller wont function well, otherwise it should automatically show the table view controller with the added bar buttons on it right?

here you can see my mainstoryboard https://docs.google.com/document/d/1hQjuJxESVq9c0rWWlURkcF3ckd5Hjga1p468rDxWe1U/edit?usp=sharing

Not solved.

I noticed when I change the "little arrow" in the mainstoryboard to the tabbarcontroller, the buttons appear. I think my rootviewcontroller is not the tabbarcontroller itself, it dont show the buttons. But there should be an other alternative to show the buttons in table view controllers, even when the tabbarcontroller is not the rootviewcontroller?

I start an updated forum post, this one could be deleted
