    Hi there,

    I'm trying to edit a WordPress theme's CSS. But it keeps telling me: You need to make this file writable before you can save your changes. See the Codex for more information. I've already enabled more than enough permission authority and this message still keeps coming up.

    How do I make a WordPress theme's stylesheet writable?

    I log in through FTP and chmod to 666
    or go through CPanel - get to the file - click change permissions - and enter 666

    Thanks for the quick reply dragonsjaw. On which part of your website are you doing that? The Public HTML folder?

    if your install is at the root of the server, it would be:
    public_html/wp-content/themes/nameofyourtheme/your theme.css

    if your install is in another folder,then add that after public_html/
    the rest would be the same.
