    I wanted to edit the style.css page, but in the WP editor it says "You need to make this file writable before you can save your changes. See the Codex for more information." I read over the Codex thing and, although they were already set to writable, I changed all of the css and php pages to 777 to make sure I'd be able to make changes, but I still cannot do so.

    This is undoubtedly a dumb problem, but I can't seem to figure it out on my own. I'm assuming there's a simple fox that I'm missing. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

    hey, I had also the same issue and I did not noticed that!!!!

    But it was solved. Please check to which style.css file are you assigning the permission. This should be one in your current theme directory. If you have three themes installed, you will have three .css files for each there. I assigned the permission and it solved my issue.

    Also, if it does not work, you can edit the file using any other client, for example FP or FTP. :)
