[Resolved] Index.php not showing changes

  • Hi, I am having an issue updating my theme’s index.php file. I have tried adding some code to the page and it is not accepting any of the changes. I even tried clearing everything and just leaving header, footer and some HTML text and it still didn’t change.

    I am not running any type of caching plugin. I tried switching themes to see if like that it would take the change, but have had no luck.

    Any ideas what might be causing this?

  • if doing it in the theme editor, you may need to chmod file to 666 to affect changes
    easier to just download it to desktop – edit – upload it back

    Thanks. I viewed the file via FTP and the file had the changes I had made via the editor.

    I realized what the problem is. The theme is using the archive.php file instead of the index.php. Basically, I was modifying the wrong file.
