Can't edit my stylesheet (4 posts)

    I am on Dreamhost and installed WordPress using their own fantastico one-click install. My problem is that I can change the templates of themes but I cant edit the stylesheet. Any changes there wont show up? Any ideas?

    To edit files in the theme editor - any file edited must have a chmod of 666. This isn't really secure, so I would suggest downloading the file, edit it in a basic editor and re-upload.

    I've written a plugin to help people change their CSS even if they can't change the file permissions:

    For future reference on the subject of making your files writable in WordPress, see Changing File Permissions.
