Appearence Editor not updating files/saving changes (2 posts)

    When clicking a file to edit and clicking "Update", basically the page just submits back to itself, like a page refresh. Nothing happens, there are no error messages, no permission error messages, nothing. The page simply reloads on "Update" and nothing has changed. All the changes I try to make are gone once it reloads itself.

    Please help, thanks.

    It could be a browser issue, as I've experienced it before. If not I'd check the themes permissions. I don't suggest leaving it like this, but you can temporarily set their permissions to 777 and see if the editor works then. If not then your hosts PHP configuration might not support the use of the built in theme editor. I've experienced this when a server is configured for DSO vs. suPHP.

    DO NOT leave your file permissions set to 777. In the end if it doesn't work grab Filezilla or some other FTP app and edit the files manually.
