Whenever I edit any theme code in my Dashboard -> Appearance -> Editor and try to save it, the file is not saved and it automatically redirects me to the homepage.

I don't know why is this happening. I cleared the cache through the W3-Total Cache plugin.

A few hours before I did the same process, it was working perfectly.

But now, I can't tell what the problem is.

I also tried the same process in a different browser: the result is the same.

I'm using the latest version of WordPress (Version 3.0.4).

    Are you using the redirection plugin? What other plugins are installed? – Chris_O Jan 28 '11 at 17:47
  • @Chris_O I was not using any redirection plugin, but after changing the name of 3 pages, this is happening, I tried the solution provided by @Jonnybojangles but still not working – Niraj Chauhan Jan 29 '11 at 4:37

I experienced an issue similar to this several months ago. I was using a plugin to kill query strings from the URL for SEO purposes. Long story short the plugin was killing search pages and admin pages as well.

As Chris_O mentioned the redirection plugin I encountered a similar redirection issue when track modify posts is enabled.

The plugin is smart enough to realize when you edit a post or page and will set up a redirect if the post or page's permalink has changed. However, when creating a new page this feature will create a redirect back to the root because the page has never existed before.
