Support » Installing WordPress » Sidebar ERROR….WARNING

  • I’m trying to add a category and a few words on the sidebar. When I clicked on “Presentation” –> “Theme Editor” –> “sidebar.php”……..then add a few code there, and click “Update File”, the following warning msg appeared and my sidebar cannot be updated.

    Here’s the Warning msg:

    Warning: fopen(C:\Clients\mytopics\\www\blog/wp-content/themes/mytheme/sidebar.php) [function.fopen]: failed to open stream: Permission denied in C:\Clients\mytopics\\www\blog\wp-admin\theme-editor.php on line 58

    Warning: fwrite(): supplied argument is not a valid stream resource….

    Warning: fclose(): supplied argument is not a valid…..

    Warning: Cannot modify header information …..

    What can I do?

  • How can I fix the ERROR?




    bumping this thread after a mere 31 minutes wont get you anywhere, that I can assure you.

    You just moved your thread out of the “no replies” section.

    Any idea what’s to be done?

    OK, I’ve been skimming several problems like the above but none of them have been solved. I just installed a WordPress blog for someone else on a Windows Server and get errors similar to the above when I want to update theme files – but also when I attempt to upload photos to the blog. (I can save posts and add photos by giving their URLs

    I’m suspecting the problem lies in the mixture of forward (/) and backward (\) slashes in the file path. But I can’t find where to fix this. I have <b>some</b> knowledge but I’m no expert as such… My own WP blog is installed in a unix environment and I never had this problem.

    Can someone PLEASE help me with this?

    Thanks in advance!
