theme management gone crazy? (5 posts)

    I am running wordpress on my local server to pre-develop my blog theme before going live. In my Theme Management I am not able to edit the files - at the bottom of the box it say's: If this file were editable you could edit it. So I edit it externally in a text editing program. When I return to theme management I get a most of the CSS file displayed on the page around about the theme description. Can I stop this. It happens after the breifest change to the CSS on any theme.

    You need to change the permissions for your CSS files and theme files. They need to be (someone correct me if I'm wrong - my memory isn't so great!) 655. I know 777 will work, but I don't think you need to go that far - it's a little insecure to take it that far - I'm pretty sure it's 655. But that's what you need to do, as your files are currently set to *not* be overwritten or changed. Just change those permissions and you're good to go.

    Oh wait - it's on a local server? That's weird...maybe check and be sure they aren't set as "read only"? That could be a possibility...

    Whatever text editing program you are using is probably messing with your line endings:

    The CSS is working fine in the site - so I think the file is fine - It's just that wordpress seems to have a fit accessing the edited files. It's probably a permissions thing but I don't know how to change that. I've tried opening up priviledges through PhpMyAdmin but that doesn't work.
