Editing Current Themes (2 posts)

    I downloaded a bunch of themes but when I try to edit them I see a "If this file was writable you could edit it." message below the edit window. What do I need to do in order to modify downloaded themes? Or is that not allowed and I need to start from scratch?

    Complete overhaul of a theme in the Theme editor is not recommended by the gurus. Probably it is a better idea to edit them on your computer and upload it when it's done.
    However for smaller edits the Theme Editor is useful, but you have to change the permission on the file you want to edit (via FTP chmod) in order to make them writable.
