Theme=Fruit (Custom Vanilla Skin - Fruit)

Currently Minify plugin disabled

So i make some changes and still nothing changed

  1. Increment ThemeInfo Version number
  2. check cache folder .ini files ---->surprise, their haven't any .ini files check my localhost development site,their has those .ini files..So i alter all those init files current details and upload files(okb files) to cache folder,nothing changed :'(
  3. Rename cache folder,Still nothing happened and our site working fine :o
  4. check confing/config-defaults.php file cache details..

     `$Configuration['Cache']['Enabled']                              = TRUE;
      $Configuration['Cache']['Method']                               = 'dirtycache';`

    make sure you have no backups or extra files with similar name with php extensions in the folder.

    zip up the old fruit theme folder - delete the fruit theme folder

    install the new fruit theme folder (with your changes). no duplicate or old copies.

    I may not provide the completed solution you might desire, but I do try to provide honest suggestions to help you solve your issue.

  • never leave duplicates with php extension.

    I've had people whose views didn't work because they had files with similar names in different plugin folder that was a disabled plugins (e.g. view not found). Similar with helper functions, etc. where changes don't seem to take. troubleshoot for hours because they have some duplicate hanging around somewhere in vanilla, but since I didn't have access to folder structure or files, I didn't know what they did and sometimes they didn't know what they did either :) , and it always leads to some mysterious problem.

    Because of the dynamic nature of the way vanilla finds and loads things you will almost always run into trouble.

    rule of thumb change to x-filename.ph

    or zip up all old files and remove.
