    A few months back when I got wordpress I got into the theme editor somehow and was able to change the css for my site. I don't quite remember how I did it. Now when I go to the theme editor,and click on style.css (which is what I'm trying to change)it says at the bottom of the box "If this file was writable you could edit it". Is there some other way to edit the style sheet? The page I'm trying to change can be seen at http://www.blissful-vengeance.org/index.php See how the background is brown and everything else matches that? The page I'm at trying to edit is under the presentation part and then I clicked on the part that says theme editor. But I can't edit it. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Okay. nevermind! I figured it out by just going into my cpanel or FTP and finding the file. :-) Thanks anyways!

  3. The "If this file was writable you could edit it" error message means that the theme files do not have the correct server permissions set to allow WordPress to write to them. If you want to edit your theme files in WordPress's theme editor, they must be set to 666 (CHMOD 666). More info:
