I have a problem where my 'add new plugin' button doesn't work and it also doesn't appear on the normal menu.

I searched online and the solution that is being suggested is swap theme to check if the theme is conflicting or disabling some of the wp-core.

I have this site already in production and I would love to change it locally to another theme just for the sake of testing.

How can I do that? I try to avoid publishing a staging environment since it's a quite time consuming and I only need to debug this one problem.

Thanks in advance.


You can change the theme by going to Appearance. Then select twenty seventeen and check if all works. You can easily switch back to your original theme, not while happen.
