    Hello,

    Whether it be an older post, a new post, or even a page, when I go to “Manage” on the dashboard, I can’t delete anything. I am in as an administrator. I double checked. What can I do?

    Thanks
    Jim

    Are your file permissions set correctly on your server?

    Well Doodlebee, if I may ask? What files am I looking to see if the permissions are set right.?

    RE: “If this file were writable you could edit it.”

    This is the message I get for all files in the Theme Editor section of “Presentation”. I need to edit the style.css file.

    Yes, I am the administrator of my site (cliffsvoice.com).

    Must I go to FTP and create and upload an new, edited style.css ?

    @cliffsvoice – either bring the file down to your PC, edit it and then upload it (via FTP as you mentioned).

    -or-

    Since you admin the site, you chould follow the link earlier in this thread and chmod the theme directory so that your apache process can write to it.

    Personally, I prefer the first option from a security perspective.

    JGatos: I just accessed the link doodlebee posted, and it’s perfectly normal American English….
