    The problem:
    When a website has a large network of 100+ sites using a custom parent theme. That theme can’t be updated in place without doing the following from the Dashboard.

    The current workflow.

    1. Activate another theme on each child site, one at a time.
    2. Delete Parent Theme
    3. Upload an updated version of the Parent Theme
    4. Manually reactivate each child theme, one at a time.

    If WordPress would allow for updating a Parent theme that’s currently active from the dashboard that would be a huge help to multisite users with dashboard only access.

    Note: I realize there are workarounds for doing this via FTP, WP-CLI, folder access over a local network, SSH. That’s something I don’t have access to in this case.
