Disable File Editing in WordPress Backend

Want to hide the editor from the WordPress editor because:

  • there are several users accessing the WordPress backend
  • a client has requested this feature be disabled
  • you never user it

Add the following line to wp-config.php above the “That’s it, happy blogging” comment line.

define('DISALLOW_FILE_EDIT', true );
