    I have WordPress 2.0.2 , I wanted to add Site Meter to my site. But when I pasted the HTML Code in the Sidebar theme Editor, there was no update button as mentioned in Sitemeter's Site. All that I saw was "If this file was writable you could edit it." as mentioned in Sitemeter, it said that I had to Change the file Permissions. I dont know what to Change pls Help.

    This was what that was written on SiteMeter's Site for WordPress,
    If the button isn't there and it instead says "If this file was writable you could edit it.", you will need to first change the file permissions so that you can modify the file and repeat the steps again.

    Basically it means that the server won't write to files, which is a good thing because it makes it more secure.

    You can use FTP to access your files and edit them on your own computer, I would recommend you do that.
