Can I edit files from the WordPress admin panel?

The WordPress bult-in file editor is disabled by default for security reasons. If the file editor is active, it allows an easy route for a malicious party that may have stolen your login information, to change files on the server. From the file editor you could make changes to the theme and plugins used on the website. 

The file editor is disabled by default but can easily be re-enabled from wp-config.php. You can edit the wp-config.php file yourself using secure connections such as SSH or SFTP. It's also possible to contact our support and ask the editor to be enabled if you have the need for it.
