    Can’t edit template files direcly since 4.9, by deepbevel

    Has anyone encountered this yet when trying to edit template files?

    “Unable to communicate back with site to check for fatal errors, so the PHP change was reverted. You will need to upload your PHP file change by some other means, such as by using SFTP.”

    It seems as though WP won’t let me edit template files directly anymore. If so, this is really, really bad.

    As a developer I understand the risk of not using a child theme. Shouldn’t this new feature be optional? If it is, please let me know how to turn it off.

    There’s also an issue now when trying to copy or paste in template files, the page jumps all over the place, and the paste ends up in random places..

    Thanks!
