WordPress Plugins Editor

Accessing the Plugins Editor Screen in WordPress

Configuring and setting up installed Plugins sometimes requires you go edit or modify the actual files of the plugin itself. This can be done from Plugins Editor.

Extending the functionality of your WordPress Website can be easy be the use of Plugins and modify the plugin files can take a little effort and practice. If you have an understanding of programming you should be fine. Usually the biggest challenge is finding the part of the file you want to change. Each developer has their own way of doing things. Make sure you thoroughly test any changes you make.

Be warned this is not for the amateur user! If you do not understand PHP code or programming you should not try this.

Go to the Plugins Editor Screen and from the pull down box in the upper right corner select the plugin you wish to edit. Plugin for plugin the number of files will vary and any changes you make will be instant and there is no undo or restore feature.

Modifying these files is not a good idea unless you really know what you are doing. Changing any of these files runs the risk of conflicts and problems with any future plugin updates so make note of any changes you make. Editing these files is typically the last resort so really think it through.

Most plugins will have a readme.txt file which may be helpful depending on what you are trying to do. Most also have a support forum that may give you direction as to where to go and what file needs to be edited.

As always its best to have a backup and if you really need to work on a live site be sure to test everything at each step.


Now that you have logged in to your WordPress site and reviewed the Plugins Editor Screen what do you do next?
