Can't Edit Themes! Theme Editor is Auto Refreshing Every 5 Seconds! What's going on?

    When I click on the theme ‘editor’ page to pull up the CSS, the page automatically refreshes every 5 seconds so I can’t do any work on the code. Why is this happening? The rest of my wordpress pages are fine.



    Hello there,

    I’m sorry to say that you are posting to the wrong support forum. That site is not on WordPress.COM servers. is a wordpress.ORG software install hosted by InMotion Hosting
    Name Servers:

    To get hosting support contact your web host and to get software support post to wordpress.ORG support.

    We do not provide support for local installs of WordPress.ORG software, or for WordPress.ORG software installs on paid hosting, linked to WordPress.COM accounts with the Jetpack plugin so they display on the My Sites WordPress.COM account page.

    WordPress.COM and WordPress.ORG are completely separate and have different username accounts, logins, features, run different versions of some themes with the same names, and have separate support documentation and separate support forums. Read the differences here

    The wordpress.ORG support forum is at The wordpress.ORG login link is here If you do not have an account yet then click Create an account and if you have lost an account password click Lost password? support docs are at
    See also for app support.


    Thank you. It was one of my plugins that was causing the problem. Oddly enough it was an image resizing plugin.
