So, you have a plugin requiring that you make a change to one of your WordPress theme templates, or you just want move something around in your theme or alter your CSS. You’ve arrived at Appearance -> Editor as instructed, but there’s no “Update File” button. This is unfortunately another one of those common annoyances related to your hosting provider’s server configuration that can take you off guard and lead to plenty of confusion. Fortunately, it’s easy to fix (or work around). Try changing the permissions of the theme files that you want to edit to 666. If that doesn’t work, just use an FTP or SFTP client and a plain text editor to edit them remotely. Of course, if neither of those methods are working out for you, please stop by the WordPress Support Forums for further assistance.

If you’re a new WordPress users, or perhaps even a veteran, you may have noticed an inability to work with your widgets at Appearance -> Widgets in your Dashboard. This is fortunately not common, but it can lead to a ton of confusion and many hours of frustrating attempts to fix it. First, make sure that your browser has JavaScript enabled. This is usually the most common cause of the issue, and fortunately the easiest to fix. If your browser does have JavaScript enabled, use an FTP or SFTP client to access your server and a plain text editor to edit your wp-config.php file. Once the file is open, add define(‘CONCATENATE_SCRIPTS’, false); below the define(‘DB_HOST’ line and save the file. In most cases, one of the two methods will work for you. If you’re still having trouble, stop by the WordPress Support Forums for further assistance.

So, you’ve just switched from the default WordPress permalink structure and now your permalinks are returning Not Found (404) errors, or you didn’t do anything at all and they’re return the error. First, there could have been a momentary glitch, so try re-saving your permalink structure at Settings/Permalinks in your admin panel. If WordPress cannot automatically edit the .htaccess file, it will provide manual instructions after saving. If that doesn’t work, contact your hosting provider and find out if mod_rewite is installed and active on your server. If it isn’t, refer to this guide for some tips on using permalinks without mod_rewrite, or find yourself a nice Apache-based server with mod_rewrite. Permalinks are a finicky thing. They’ll either work right away, if you re-save, and if you use a work-around, otherwise they just won’t work at all. If you’re still having trouble, contact the WordPress Support Forums for more assistance.
