Theme-editor.php / Style.css problem (5 posts)

    I got the 3.8.1 version and it was running fine. Today, after installing the Fourteen Colors plugin, i got an issue, but it doesn't seems to be a plugin problem.

    Running the Twenty Fourteen theme, when i try to edit the Style.css file, the browser page goes blank, and no modifications done.

    What i already tried?

    - Disable and delete the plugin
    - Disable all plugins
    - Change file permissions
    - Re-upload the Wp-admin folder
    - Delete and reinstall Twenty Fourteen
    - Reinstall the 3.8.1 through Dashboard
    - Try another browser

    More info:

    - I can edit other files than Style.css from theme-editor normally
    - Using any other theme but Twenty Fourteen i got no problems

    Some help?
    Thanks.

    You shouldn't edit a theme's files directly. You want to use a child theme for this.

    Link to site?

    Yeah, i noticed in some topics, about child themes.
    I never update the themes so it will not be a problem. But anyway i'll try to learn that child themes thing and use it just for safety.

    I can be wrong, i don't understand much of WordPress, but right now i think this will not help. I'm considering backing up, clean the account and start from scratch, or contact the webhost to see if it can be in their end.

    The website is: Gamefront BR
    I was just starting to change things there.

    That's REALLY strange.

    I ended up deleting the account on that domain and creating a new one. So i installed a new WP in the new account, and before i tried to backing up the old files, i tested editing the style.css again. Same thing happens, only with Twenty Fourteen.

    That's really sad, i wanted that much to use this theme, but it's the only one that doesn't work by any mean........

    Just updating the issue.
    I can't say for sure, i don't understand that much of it, but it seems something wrong just with the Twenty Fourteen Theme in my own Host, because i can't find people having the same issue.

    What i already tried?

    - Disable and delete the plugin
    - Disable all plugins
    - Change file permissions
    - Re-upload the Wp-admin folder
    - Delete and reinstall Twenty Fourteen
    - Reinstall the 3.8.1 through Dashboard
    - Try another browser
    - Create a new host account with a new WP install
    - Install 3.7 WP version

    In any of these cases, still:

    - I can edit other files than Style.css from theme-editor normally
    - Using any other theme but Twenty Fourteen i got no problems
