Cannot edit theme files (2 posts)

    I just (like an hour ago) upgraded to 2.3.3 and went into Theme Editor, only to find the message "If this file were writable you could edit it." on all the files. Is this something with the software? If so what can I do to fix it so I can edit things like my header and sidebar?

    Thanks,

    You download the file. You open it in notepad or any editor that will NOT add code (like Word). Make your changes. Upload the file. Go to your site and check to see if your changes are ok or if they screwed everthing up.

    You can do all this in about 3 or 4 keystokes when you are setup correctly.
