Support » Fixing WordPress » Theme editor corrupts style.css

  • bouchardd1


    I’m using the default Theme Editor from WordPress (Appearance–>Editor), running on wordpress 3.0.3, IIS 7.5, Windows Server 2008. My theme is Modern-Style.

    When I edit my style.css file past a certain line, it corrupts the file and I start getting HTTP 500.50 errors (URL rewritting). I can modify the same file using notepad and it updates fine, but if I update past that line using the editor it will break it, every single time.

    I restored the file from the original theme zip and redid every modification one by one. When I get to that line (
    #s {
    width: 190px;
    padding: 4px;
    margin:3px 0 0 0;
    background: none;
    or anything past that line, it will corrupt my file (well, start making the 500.50 error.

    I’m at a lost here!

    I tried the permissions reset (IUSR and IIS_IUSR both have modify, read,write, etc. from the root).
