    After upgrading to 2.9 i get this error when trying to go to appearance -> editor and then selecting a file to edit.

    (and yes i checked the path, and the file(s) do exist)

    I upgraded wordpress automatic and i read that it would be wise to upgrade it again manually, so i did, but still the same error.

    Anyone know what is causing this and how to fix it? I checked the wordpress database and it says it is up to date.

    I just found out that if you paste the full path in your address bar, wordpress will be able to find the file.

    atm your url will look like this:

    http://yoursite.com/wp-admin/theme-editor.php?file=/themes/yourtheme/archive.php(and here some info about the theme)

    change this url into this:

    http://yoursite.com/wp-admin/theme-editor.php?file=/home/website/public_html/website/themes/yourtheme/archive.php(and here some info about the theme)

    you will need to check for yourself what you should put in the website/yoursite spaces.

    So it seems that wordpress generates a false path, and therefore cannot find the file.

    Is there any way to fix this?

    This has just happened to me, half an hour before a site I was developing was due to go live. I have no idea why it's suddenly happened, and it's causing me a whole world of stress, because I can no longer make small, quick adjustments to the site, I have to edit the theme files offline and then FTP them, which is crazy.

    Did you ever fix the issue, egjweb? Pasting the full path to the files doesn't even work, even though I know they're there, I can see them!

    I'm on WP 3.0.1
    Plugins:
    qTranslate 2.5.9
    cforms 11.5
    Pods CMS 1.9.3

    even with all of these disabled, I still can't access the theme editor.

    Ok, someone's messing with my head today. Three hours after the theme editor went missing, at literally the worst possible time, it's back. And I haven't made any changes that could have caused that to happen. This is fantastic news on the one hand, because now everything works again, but I hate not knowing why. And what to do about it if it happened again.
