    I have inserted new code onto my stylesheet but can't see where to update it. I changed my permissions to 777 but that didn't seem to do anything. Please advise.

    Thanks

    Are you editing is via the WP admin area or FTP?

    WP admin area.

    There should be a button right below the editing area that says 'Update File'. Click that.

    No instead there is a line that reads:
    "You need to make this file writable before you can save your changes. See the Codex for more information."

    Which is why I went onto change the file permissions to 777. Should I download the style file from FTP and edit it and upload it again, is that possible? - I haven't tried that

    What would you suggest?

    This might help:

    EDIT: Also you can try making all of the files in the theme folder 777 if nothing else fixes the problem. This should not cause a security issue.
