How to edit themes and plugins from admin panel

Sometimes it’s useful to make some changes in theme files or plugin files. Maybe you want to create some customizations or add quick fix. Usually, you can do this from ftp. Or from admin panel, but default wordpress file editor doesn’t show all theme files. How to fix this?

It’s very easy. Just use plugin Wp Editor

After activating, go to Appearance -> Editor. And you can see all theme and plugin’s files here. Also, each file will show code in text editor, very similar to code editors like sublime text or notepad ++

I use this plugin very often when I need to add quick changes to client’s websites and I don’t have ftp account.

After use, please, deactivate plugin
