The LaunchPad settings menu doesn’t display on my site

Due to an issue with how custom theme menus are registered, if “file editing” is disabled on your site you will not be able to access the LaunchPad Settings menu item or page. This main settings are is normally found under Appearance on the admin panel. If you don’t see LaunchPad as an item in this section then you’re likely suffering from this issue.

To resolve this, you’ll need to update a constant definition in your site’s wp-config.php file.

The constant will look like this:

define( 'DISALLOW_FILE_EDIT', true );

And you’ll need to update it to look like this:

define( 'DISALLOW_FILE_EDIT', false );

Save the file and reload your admin panel and you’ll see the LaunchPad menu!
