Remove the theme editor submenu within admin

Posted a snippet yesterday to remove $submenu items but for some reason it does not remove the theme editor panel this way. Adding this snippet to the functions.php of your wordpress theme will remove the theme editor submenu. Or disable editor and plugin modifications entirely.

Code Snippet:

function remove_editor_menu() {
remove_action('admin_menu', '_add_themes_utility_last', 101);
add_action('_admin_menu', 'remove_editor_menu', 1);

  1. hi,

    it seems that you may use this instead :

    define( 'DISALLOW_FILE_EDIT', true );

    1. Yes this is true I posted this snippet a while back, but I think Ill link to this in the post above as well. Thanks Seb,
