Support » Fixing WordPress » WP Dashboard Appearance Editor not showing all Child theme files

  • I’ve created child themes for my sites. In addition to the styles.css file, I’ve revised a header.php, footer.php and home.php file. Also, I’ve revised a two php files that are “included” in the other files; one in header.php called featured.php, and one in footer.php, called scripts.php. I’ve revised the path appropriately, and the correct child includes .php files are being used. In other words, I can see my changes on the site.

    However, in the Dashboard Appearance Editor, when I select the Child Theme to edit, I see only the styles.css, and header, footer and home php files. The php files that are “included” do not show up in the Editor. I can edit them elsewhere and FTP them up to my site, but the Dashboard Editor is so much more convenient.

    Is there a way to get those included php files to show up in the Editor?

    Thanks for any help.
