[resolved] I'm having a problem with my homepage slider (5 posts)

    When I hit "add new" I get this message; Warning : The permissions to the directory /home4/uscarpet/public_html/wp-content/plugins/s3slider-plugin/files/ are invalid. Set them to 777 to be able to upload files.
    I don't have a clue what to do. Can anyone help?

    these 2 folders must have chmod (permissions) of 777
    you will do this with either an ftp client or in your host's file manager
    if not familiar with ftp, the file manager will be easier - there should be an icon or tab for permissions

    ftp links:

    I am facing the same problem. http://codex.wordpress.org/Changing_File_Permissions says that we shouldn't change the permissions to 777.

    Anyone please help.

    Much appreciated.

    I found out that my software needed updating. That's why I got the error. My hosting service fixed the mess I made after I changed all the codes. Make sure you have the most current updates. If you still have problems, try contacting your hosting service. They may be able to help you with a fix.

    Thanks. Let me talk to my hosting provider.
