Support » Theme: Mesmerize » Missing ‘Theme Editor’ under Appearance

  • Resolved WorkinWP



    is anyone else missing the ability to edit theme files since updating to the latest Mesmerize version? I thought maybe WP 5.5 removed it but it didn’t, it’s in my other sites. I don’t mean ‘Edit CSS’ which takes you to the customizer, I mean Theme Editor where you could edit theme and child files which was at the bottom of the Appearance tab.

    I’ve tried after logging into admin, appending wp-admin/theme-editor.php to the end and it says you do not have permission. So I added define( ‘DISALLOW_FILE_EDIT’, false ); to wp-config.php (it wasn’t in there originally at all) and that didn’t matter either. This has happened to another site, however which was also updated to WP 5.5 which I can’t fix either with the above solutions.

    Thanks in advance!

  • Hello iguanamom me too have the same problem i didn’t know how to fix this

    I have the same problem.
    I tried googling it and they say that you can enable it in wp_config.php file.
    here is the link to the video
    But I don’t have that file on my computer. If anyone knows how to find that file I would appreciate you sharing the steps.

    Hi, try adding to wp-config.php both

    define(‘DISALLOW_FILE_EDIT’, false);
    define(‘DISALLOW_FILE_MODS’, false);

    it worked for me.

    Thanks for that. It didn’t work but found out what it was. WP Hardening plugin. I cloned and disabled it and it came back.
