I am editing my .tpl files and they are simply not updating on my shop. I started from trying to remove the phone from the header.tpl, and removing some extra fluff I didn't want from category.tpl. Nothing was changing in the site whatsoever. Eventually I completely cleared out the catalog\view\theme\default\template\common\header.tpl file. I left it there with just a blank space. My whole site still worked perfectly. I then deleted the file altogether, and my site showed nothing but a blank file. The file has to exist in order for my site to work but it doesn't have to have any actual content in it. I'm very confused. I don't have any other themes nor have I attempted to install any other themes. My version is Version 2.0.3.1. I have been trying to figure it out for over two hours now and I am so frustrated at this point. Any idea on why this is happening?

It seems that your files is modifed by OCMOD extensions. They create cache for files.
You should go to admin > Extensoins > Modifications > click on the Refresh button and check changes again.

I have the same problem. I'm using 2.0.3.1 also. The strange thing is, some .tpl files I can edit (like footer.tpl and contact.tpl for instance) but when I want to change account.tpl or category.tpl for instance this doens't have any effect. Also when I delete account.tpl from my default theme and my own theme it's still working. Nothings changed. The rights are the same for all the .tpl files.

I've tried the refresh on modifications also. This has zero effect. Can anyone help out?

Could you send a admin account and a FTP account via PM, so I can take a look at the problem closer?

Doesn't work for me.

It's so odd. I've written a vqmod and that has an effect. But when I edit the .tpl file, I get nothing.

Version: 2.1.0.1

Thanks for your help :)

Apologies, I had to get busy lol. I sorted it out. It was clearing the cache from an old xml I believe.

That is: Admin > Modifications > Clear Cache

and then if you have other ocmod's installed, click refresh if you to make sure they will work again. Because clearing the cache removes all .xml changes I've found (ocmod and vqmod) and then hitting Refresh reloads the enabled/uploaded mods, creating a cache ensuring their operation.
