How to disable Orbisius Theme Editor Plugin?

Just put this line right after the first <?php tag in the wp-config.php. This will also remove the WordPress' Theme/Plugin editors as well.

define('DISALLOW_FILE_EDIT', true);

The child theme is created but doesn't have some styles or doesn't show the admin panel of the parent theme

OK. Please contact the theme author if his/her theme is child theme friendly. Also which files does the theme need in order to work well.

My Site is Broken

!@$@!$. Ok. Calm down. When you created the theme did you click on copy functions.php from advanced options? Ok. You'll need to use FTP client and go to in the wordpress folder and then wp-content/themes/AAAAA-child-01/ and delete functions.php AAAAA is of course the directory of your parent theme.

I want to be able to copy functions.php

Please use Orbisius Theme Editor (part of this plugin)
