Missing edit tab under appearance (5 posts)

    I was doing fine by creating a child theme and importing the header and functions folders to the theme. Then I noticed that the "Edit" tab under appearance was not there. It is not there on the parent theme and of course the child theme.

    Anyone have a fix for this?

    I found the problem.

    It was with the wp-config.php file. The line you are looking for is define('DISALLOW_FILE_EDIT', true);

    Change it from true to false and you are laughing.

    I bet you use 1and1 for your hosting and they told you to contact wordpress for the solution to this problem.

    Hey Bob,

    Can you send all the details about that conversation to marko at 1and1.com?

    The reason we do this is because of security. The editor is a target for hackers to change the code of your site. Also it's a bad practice to change themes but also plugins. This because they will update and your changes are gone then.

    Also I want to mention that we are not the only hosting company doing this.
