<para>Files from some types of URI are opened as read-only, and any changes you make must be saved to a different location. HTTP only allows files to be read. Files opened from FTP are read-only because not all FTP servers may correctly work with saving remote files.</para>
<warning><para>Saving to FTP servers can be enabled with <ulink type="help" url="help:mateconf-editor"><application>Configuration Editor</application></ulink>, setting the key <systemitem>/apps/pluma/preferences/editor/save/writable_vfs_schemes</systemitem>, but this may cause errors.</para></warning>
