    First, make sure it’s not disabled in the dashboard:

    Admin -> Users -> Personal Profile

    no it is not disabled

    I had the same problem. Someone here told me which file to edit and change false to true or visa versa.

    “Bill” said, ” If you determine that you do have full admin capabilities, but the site was set up by someone else, you might also check your wp-config file for define(‘DISALLOW_FILE_EDIT’, true); which is sometimes used as a security measure. Setting it to false will display the editor again. Many of us prefer to use other editors by default anyway.”.

    My late husband used a server. I donot totally understand how to use it so I have been editing on wordpress. This I think is the only site that does not have the editor. Where to change the wp-config I am not sure how or where to find it.

    I did not find this wp-config file for define(‘DISALLOW_FILE_EDIT’, true);

    Do you have any security plugins installed? I disable this feature before handing the site over to a client and I use All In One WP Security to do it.

    no security plugins

    I have updated all the plugin that are used, now i really need to get to the style.css because i have a few things not looking correct.

    any fixes out there?

    You could try deactivating your plugins and switching to a default theme and see if it is still missing. If so, chances are it is in your wp-config.php and if you don’t have file access you may just want to contact your host.

    If not, then at least you can narrow down the culprit.
