    Hi :) everytime i try to change a theme in my wp-admin area i get this "Sorry, you need to enable sending referrers for this feature to work."

    so i read the instruction, follow them through - both in IE and Mozilla firefox, and i still get it.

    Any help? i did exactly what this page: http://codex.wordpress.org/Enable_Sending_Referrers
    said to do.

    i'm using both IE and mozilla firefox.

    p.s: also what do i need to do to make the files writeable from the themes editor.

    Thank you

    That's probably your entire problem.
    All files in the theme folder need CHMOD of 666 and folders at 755.

    He means you'll have to go into the FTP directory of your site, and give those directories/files a CHMOD of 755 and 666.

    All files in the theme folder need CHMOD of 666, so you can edit them in the Control Panel.

    Theme folder needs a CHMOD of 755.

    The first section of here should help you..
