Using WordPress Full Site Editor

Accessing the Editor

On your WordPress Dashboard, go directly to the Appearance section.

Figure 1

Under the Appearance menu, click on the Editor sub-menu. (Note: If this sub-menu didn’t appear, that means either you’re not using WordPress version 5.9 and above or you are not using a theme that supports Full Site Editing. Please check our docs about how to install the theme here).

After that, the Editor will open and preview the current template your theme is using (For example in Figure 3, Financio index template is shown).
