  • Hi. Still getting to grips with WP – so far so impressive.

    Only one minor annoyance – apologies if it has come up before – the ubiquitous message:

    “If this file was writable you could edit it”

    Of course this should be:
    “If this file /were/ writable you could edit it.”

    (Or rephrase it to avoid the subjunctive mood altogether!)

    I’ll no doubt hack it out of my installation, but no harm in fixing the distribution sometime…
