    In my FTP I screwed with all the access numbers and now my blog doesn't appear at all. Anyone

    a) have any idea what the standard numbers should be?
    b) have any idea what the numbers should be if I want to be able to modify my blog, template, etc?

    These are the CHMOD numbers or soemthing like that.

    Thanks.

    Access numbers?

    CHMOD deals with permissions on each file. That doesn't seem like something you'd easily mess up since you typically have to find where to type those numbers in on your FTP program and would have to select different files to set that.

    Here's more information:

    Try re-chmodding your all your WordPress folders 755 once..

    And all your WordPress files, 644..

    THANKS!

    Now, when I am in "theme editor" it says "if this file were writeable..."

    I want it to be writeable by me. How do I change it so it is?

    640 is more than enough for files

    Which still brings me to my question about how I am able to change the guts of a template?

    Go to Presentation >> Theme Editor. That's how you modify things.

    I go there and I get this at the bottom:

    "If this file were writable you could edit it."

    I want it to be writable so I can edit it.

    if you've changed the permissions on [yourthemename] files, then I suggest a hard refresh.

    ctrl+f5

    Man. I am getting so frustrated with this computer. It didn't work. I even closed out of everything and came back in.

    What folder needs to be set to what permissions??? Sigh.

    Is it 755 or 777?

    Your theme folder, the one you're wanting to edit, here:
    wp-content/themes/your-theme-here <--

    That folder, chmod 755. That theme's files, inside that folder..chmod 666.

    WOO HOO! Thanks Spencerp!

    Now--before I tag a "resolved" on this--can those folders ALWAYS stay at 666? Or should they go back to 644? I have this blog hosted professionally.

    Please let me know.

    Folders should never be 666, you must have seen when I posted it wrong. =(

    Folders = 755
    Files = 644
    Theme files to edit *only* = 666

    Then, when done editing those theme files.. re-chmod the theme files back to 644..

    By the way, welcome back Kate!! =) Glad to see you back here again!! =) ;) I'm happy now.. =P
