    I'm trying to add a category and a few words on the sidebar. When I clicked on "Presentation" --> "Theme Editor" --> "sidebar.php"........then add a few code there, and click "Update File", the following warning msg appeared and my sidebar cannot be updated.

    Here's the Warning msg:

    -----------------------------------------
    Warning: fopen(C:\Clients\mytopics\mytopics.net\www\blog/wp-content/themes/mytheme/sidebar.php) [function.fopen]: failed to open stream: Permission denied in C:\Clients\mytopics\mytopics.net\www\blog\wp-admin\theme-editor.php on line 58

    Warning: fwrite(): supplied argument is not a valid stream resource....

    Warning: fclose(): supplied argument is not a valid.....

    Warning: Cannot modify header information .....
    -----------------------------------------

    What can I do?

    bumping this thread after a mere 31 minutes wont get you anywhere, that I can assure you.

    You just moved your thread out of the "no replies" section.

    OK, I've been skimming several problems like the above but none of them have been solved. I just installed a WordPress blog for someone else on a Windows Server and get errors similar to the above when I want to update theme files - but also when I attempt to upload photos to the blog. (I can save posts and add photos by giving their URLs

    I'm suspecting the problem lies in the mixture of forward (/) and backward (\) slashes in the file path. But I can't find where to fix this. I have <b>some</b> knowledge but I'm no expert as such... My own WP blog is installed in a unix environment and I never had this problem.

    Can someone PLEASE help me with this?

    Thanks in advance!
