Editing PHP nothing happens (2 posts)

    Website: http://www.iknowman.com
    Theme: WP-Coda Blue

    I can edit my stylesheet just fine and it shows up on my website. Ex: the 100px "About the author" at the bottom of the page.

    BUT when I try and edit the footer php file to get "About the author" to say "test" I get no changes. I've tried using the wp editor and an outside editor and importing the file to my ftp.

    I've read through the troubleshooting page on this site and followed through those steps but I'm at a loss.

    Any advice would help. Original footer code below.

    <div id="page_footer">
    	<h5>about the author</h5>
    	<p>The founder of popular webmaster forum MySpacePros.com,
    	<a href="http://greg-j.com/">Greg Johnson</a> is a UI Designer and
    	Software Developer that focuses on developing web
    	applications used by other web masters to monetize their online
    	presense. While Greg enjoys his career in web development, his
    	career passion is in game design. Greg hopes to publish his first
    	game over XBOX Live and Wii Arcade within the next 2 years. If
    	you would like to get in touch with Greg or just see what he's
    	up to, you can do so by visiting his website: Greg-J.com.</p>
    </div>
    
    <div id="footer">
    	<!-- While a link back is not required, it is appreciated -->
    	<p>
    		<span class="left"><a href="http://bustatheme.com/wordpress/">WordPress Themes</a> available from Bustatheme.com.</span>
    		<span class="right">WP CODA Designed by <a href="http://greg-j.com/">Greg Johnson</a></span>
    	</p>
    </div>
    
    <?php wp_footer(); ?>
    </body>
    </html>

    Did you remember to press CTRL and F5 simultaneously when viewing an updated page? That should ensure that your web browser fetches a fresh copy of the page rather than serving up an out-dated copy from your own cache.
