Editing in the theme editor
I am trying to edit the home page of my blog – the content is in the listing-header.php file and as I know HTML I want to do this directly within the theme editor, editing the templates/files. The message says that I need to make the file writable before I can save changes, which I think I understand. Do I set just this file to ‘owner’, ‘group’ and ‘public’ permissions to read and write (or just change the numeric value to 666?). Do I need to change any other files apart from this one? Will this cause me any security issues? I can’t access my FTP files myself because I am having problems downloading Filezilla so am having to ask a friend to do this (this blog was set up by a previous work colleague who I can’t ask now!) and it is getting all a bit confusing! Will I see a ‘save’ button on the theme editor page once I set the files to ‘write’ or do I have to save the file on my desktop and upload it – obviously this is a problem as I can’t get the FTP access myself. Apologies for the long post . . . Any help you can give me would be great as I have been trying to sort this for days (and I’ve got issues upgrading as well, but that’ll come later once I’ve sorted this problem out!)
