    The file needs to be writeable. See http://codex.wordpress.org/Changing_File_Permissions

    Hi there,
    I had the same problem. You need to do the following. From the wp-content folder:

    click themes

    then click on the theme you wish to edit

    then you'll see a whole bunch of files listed

    highlight "sidebar.php" with your mouse.

    Then right-click on sidebar.php (or whichever part of the theme file you want to adjust)

    From there click "file attributes"

    On the botton of that little screen, type in the number 666

    You will want to do the exact same thing with your" index.php" in the specific theme folder.
