Theme updates don't appear (7 posts)

    WordPress lives in a sub-dir. index.php is in root. This works fine except when I make changes to my template.

    I will double and triple check the changed files, even logging into my shell account and manually editing. The changes are there but don't load into my browser.

    cache (f5, etc) doesn't seem to be the issue here.

    this is weird.

    if i put nonsense at the end of the URI, it grabs the updated theme. if i put a sensible URI, it doesn't work.

    consider:

    http://freethedjs.com/

    versus

    http://freethedjs.com/blahblahblah

    specifically look at the technorati box in the sidebar.

    something to do with .htaccess, right? here's mine now:

    # BEGIN WordPress
    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule . /index.php [L]
    </IfModule>
    # END WordPress

    I've had the same problem but I am so confused on the suggestions made above.

    For me, it’s almost like whenever I make a certain adjustment in coding (such as adding two new affiliates) it’s like, “Sorry not going to show up.” The only thing that seems to work is if I make an adjustment, then switch to a different theme and back to my current does everything work.

    I thought it had something to do with the upgrade but now I am completely stumped.

    Do you have WP-Cache installed, by any chance?

    Yes, I do. Is that something I should deactivate or keep activated?

    WP-Cache works by keeping a static version of the pages. So it may not notice immediately when your pages change. Might want to read up closer on WP-Cache. There's some way you can flush the cache after making changes to your pages like that.
