Support » Themes and Templates » How to change file permissions to edit footer
2 years, 7 months ago
I would like to make some edits to the header and footer of my website, http://cpd.berkeley.edu/, but when I go in to try to make them, it says: *You need to make this file writable before you can save your changes. See the Codex
<http://codex.wordpress.org/Changing_File_Permissions> for more
Does anyone know how I can make the file writable so that I can edit it? I
would like to add an official seal, logo, and contact information in the footer.
What theme are you using? Where did you download it from?
I am using the Twenty Eleven theme and I downloaded it from WordPress.
Do not edit the theme itself. First create a child theme for your changes. Or install a custom CSS plugin.
Ok, thanks. I will try one of those options.
