if this file were writable you could edit it.

  • Hello,

    I’m new to WP and I was wondering how I could edit th templates on it. Every time I click “Theme Editor” I can’t change anything, all it says is “if this file were writable you could edit it.”

    does anyone know how I could incorporate my OWN layout, while using WP. I could do it in Movable Type, but I can’t seem to figure it out on WP..

    thanx for your time.

  • To make your stuff editable. You’re hosted with apache so this’ll be simple.

    SSH or telnet into your account, navigate to your theme directory and do
    chmod 666 *
    at the command line. That makes them “world writeable” in Unix lingo, meaning you can now edit them from within WP.
