Recent RC releases (3 & 4) have a strange cache system.
I did not manage to make SStripe use a cache folder in its own folder and not on /tmp system main folder.
I read many posts on this forum about strange problems with editing the tagline, header, template... I understand now : When SStripe creates its /tmp/silverstripe-cache-something cache folder, there is now easy way after that to make a change in the template.
To reproduce the problem, make a simple "blackcandy" default rc3/rc4 install. (There is perhaps a problem with the automatic delete install files, I got blank pages sometimes but this is not the main issue). Then the usual next step is to try to edit somepage with the admin panel, it is ok. Then many people like me will try to edit the template just for a simple test like changing the header : "Your Site Name" and "your site's tagline here".
I tried like others here to edit "the header" in the page.ss in the blackcandy original folder... but even afer a forced browser refresh, I did not see any change in the published website.
Some people wrote something abotu searching in the "mysite" SStripe subfolder but mysite subfolder only contains two empty subfolders (at least in the rc3 and rc4 I tried).
I was going mad when I found the /tmp/something SStripe cache folder... Then the only way I found to make a change in the header and everywhere in the main template is to :
- Edit /path_to_your_Stripe_webfolder/themes/blackcandy/templates/Page.ss
- Delete files in /tmp/silverstripe-cache-something
I guess this is not the right way but I was not able to find anything else.
