Support » Themes and Templates » no "Appearance" button in left column menu

    I want to make some HTML adjustments on a friend’s website but
    there is no “Appearance” tab in the left column menu in my Dashboard.
    Therefore I cannot make any adjustments in the Editor.

    Does anyone know why there is no Appearance in my left menu and what can I do to make it come back? I know this is an older version of WP but I am hesitant to update it since it’s not my site and sometimes updating gets things all screwed up. Besides, I don’t have the FTP access to this site either.

    Any help on getting that Appearance tab is much appreciated!!

    It’s probably hidden, but it should still be accessible via e.g. http://mysite.com/wp-admin/theme-editor.php

    thanks for the reply. It’s not hidden, I have all the other tabs all the way from Post at top to Gallery at the very bottom. Gallery is my last tab on the list. There is no Appearance tab.

    However, i think i know why that is: i used the link you sent me to get into the theme editor but I got this message:
    “You do not have sufficient permissions to access this page”

    Maybe that explains why there’s no Appearance tab?

    correct, I assumed you had admin access 🙂

    i have the same problem too.. does it mean that admin should grant me permission to have Appearance Tab?

    Thanks for the help!
