Permissions problems

  • When trying to use the theme editor, it says

    If this file was writable you could edit it.

    at the bottom of the screen.

    So I use my ftp client to go and change the permissions of the theme directory to 666, as suggested in another post here. As soon as I do that, I start having all kinds of major permissions problems and WP starts acting wacky, the site cannot be updated, new posts do not show up etc.

    What’s going on here?

    TIA!
