WordPress Speed Up Service | WordPress Website Maintenance Packages Edit new theme under ‘dashboard’ instead of ‘customize’?, by colorglocalgary Hi. I want to change my webpage theme, but would like to edit the new theme properly before I activate it. I found a new theme I like, but all I can do is ‘customize’ it, which has very limited editing functionality compared with ‘dashboard’… so much so that I can’t even tell if the new theme will suit my needs prior to activation. I’d like to avoid shutting down my site for a day while I scramble to get things working again under a different theme. Is there a way to edit a non-activated theme under dashboard (instead of ‘customize’), and save it before eventually activating it? Thank you. Edit new theme under ‘dashboard’ instead of ‘customize’?
