Theme Editor Won't Work (2 posts)

    Hello -- in one of my recent installations of WordPress, I can get to the main Theme Editor page, but if I click on ANY of the individual files in order to modify them, I get taken directly to my main blog page. In other words, I can not even view my Theme files, let alone edit them. The only exception is the CSS file - as the first entry in each Theme directory, it does show up in my Theme Editor, but if I click on (for instance) the Sidebar file, I get taken instead to my main WP blog page.

    Any ideas?

    Are you sure you uploaded the theme folder/files correctly?

    It should be like this:
    wp-content/themes/your-theme-name/

    Not:
    wp-content/themes/your-theme-name/your-theme-name/

    Also, chmod your theme folder 755, and your theme files 666 to edit then..
