editor under appearance

  • Hi,

    I wish to add a pop ads code on my wordpress site as per the instructions herebelow.I am unable to find the Editor under appearance on wordpress.

    Step to add popads code

    login to your wordpress website
    go to apperance –> editor
    select the theme you are using
    Find header.php from the files
    Find a tag called <head> or </head> ( search using ctrl + f on chrome )
    paste the code just above the </head> or just below the <head>
    Now click on update file and save it

    please assist.


    If you are unable to see the Editor link under Appearance it is because you do not have full administrator privileges.

    Did you install WordPress yourself or did someone else do it for you?

    I installed it myself.I ve been making all the changes but thats the only change am unable to make.

    This is the free version.i was trying it out before i go for pro versions.

    Is there a plugin i could use to install it or anything else i can do to install it or guide me on how to re install it correctly
    I really want to give it s try.I dont want to change to another theme.
    Do othery plugins affect it
    I have magic action box,contact form 7,social plug,social media plugin,


    Would i be able to see editor under appearance if i installed a child theme ?
    This was suggested in a forum i belong

    If i can.How do i do so.


    I don’t think using a Child theme would restrict you from being able to edit the files.

    That is what the Editor allows you to do.

    Here is how you can debug the issue.

    Disable all plugins and re-enable them until you see the problem.

    Then you will have identified the problem.

    You can also disabled the Child theme and just use Novapress.
