Hi. How can we help?

How to find the file functions.php

The file functions.php is one of the most important files of a WP theme.

You will find it in all themes and it is in the main theme folder, in example maya/functions.php, or room09/functions.php.


You can find it in two ways.


Via WP Editor:

Navigate to Appearance > Editor.




You will see here a list of files on the right. The file functions.php is named Theme Functions (functions.php)


The list of files may be different from this screenshot. In a child theme there are few files. In a standard theme the list is bigger. But the file functions.php will be always there, in the list.


Via FTP:

Connect via FTP to your server. Navigate to wp-content/themes/<your-theme>/. You will find there the file functions.php2013-09-25_1031.png
