Support » Fixing WordPress » theme management gone crazy?

  • I am running wordpress on my local server to pre-develop my blog theme before going live. In my Theme Management I am not able to edit the files – at the bottom of the box it say’s: If this file were editable you could edit it. So I edit it externally in a text editing program. When I return to theme management I get a most of the CSS file displayed on the page around about the theme description. Can I stop this. It happens after the breifest change to the CSS on any theme.

  • You need to change the permissions for your CSS files and theme files. They need to be (someone correct me if I’m wrong – my memory isn’t so great!) 655. I know 777 will work, but I don’t think you need to go that far – it’s a little insecure to take it that far – I’m pretty sure it’s 655. But that’s what you need to do, as your files are currently set to *not* be overwritten or changed. Just change those permissions and you’re good to go.

    Oh wait – it’s on a local server? That’s weird…maybe check and be sure they aren’t set as “read only”? That could be a possibility…

    Whatever text editing program you are using is probably messing with your line endings:

    The CSS is working fine in the site – so I think the file is fine – It’s just that wordpress seems to have a fit accessing the edited files. It’s probably a permissions thing but I don’t know how to change that. I’ve tried opening up priviledges through PhpMyAdmin but that doesn’t work.
