    Somebody told me that I have to make the themes 777 so I can use the theme editor,so I did it.
    I have the themes folfer 755 and the themes inside it 777 but I don't understand how to save the changes I make with the theme editor!

    Change them to 666, so that they are writable and savable in WordPress...

    Change to 666 the theme folder or each theme separately?

    To be writable:
    folders 777
    files 666.
    Otherwise, to avoid hacking your site, change them back immediately to:
    folders 755
    files 644.

    For the above reason = 777 and 666 leaves your site wide open for every hacker... I never use that online editor. Edit the files on your computer and upload via FTP. It is safe.
