    Theme editor shows parent files when editing child, by twcfan92

    After upgrading to the latest version of WordPress, I noticed that files from my parent theme are showing up in the theme editor, even though I’ve selected the child theme. Is this a bug or a feature? If it’s a feature, I have to ask – why?

    Obviously the point of creating a child theme is so you can make coding changes to the parent theme independently. Having parent and child theme files in the same editor screen is both confusing and a disaster waiting to happen.
