Use the Appearance Editor screen to modify these topic data sets. You can use the built-in topic editor to display or modify any topic or stylesheet stored in a topic template (see next paragraph). Every filename content is shown in the large text field (or editing field) that is dominating this screen.
When a particular type of data can be written to (see Modifying permissions ), changes can be made and stored. So if a filename is not writeable, the error box will say you need to make this filename writeable before you can store your changes. Naturally, you must modify the permissions before changes can be stored.
Name of the themes to edit is shown at the top of the text area. When the full text of the document cannot be seen, a scrolling toolbar appears to the right of the text area. Because the topic filenames are plain text, no image or graphics can be pasted into the text area.
In this pulldown menu, choose the design you want to edit and click the Choose icon on the right. When you click the Choose icon, the topic template and stylesheet definitions are displayed on the right side of the text field, and the stylesheet definition for that topic (style.css) is inserted into the text field.
To the right of the large text field is a dropdown menu of topic template or stylesheet definitions that can be modified. To place the text of this filename in the editor field, click one of the filename hyperlinks. Exercise caution when processing PHP dossiers on your topic.
Editor does not create backups. However, if you are experiencing an issue that causes your Web site to crash, you cannot use the Editor to fix the issue. Be sure to click this icon to store the changes you made to the data set. Once you click this icon, you should see a split notification at the top of the page that says Files Edited Successfully.
Notice that if a non-writable executable cannot be written to, the Update executable dialog box is unavailable.
