Description

I couldn't find a ticket proposing this, so here it is.

The theme and plugin editor in the Admin do more harm than good. Those who know how to use them know better than to use them. Those who use them don't know the consequences. In my consultancy, we get a sizable number of requests from people who "broke their site" because they wanted to remove a line of text from the footer, headed straight to Appearance > Editor and added a couple of fatal PHP errors along the way.

At the risk of losing a lot of business (!), I think it's time to hide the File Editor by default.
