It is a bit difficult to edit themes or plugin files from the dashboard. A code editor is what its name suggests – a tool which is used to write code, design your website code/files. Theme code editor permits you to modify WordPress theme files from the WordPress dashboard (admin area). You will edit active theme files or you can even choose from any other installed theme from the list themes.
