I've edited my template Footer.ss
I get no update of the footer, still the same old footer, so I removed it totally, ran the flush, then CTRL + F5 number of times, Wiped my history, cache, rebooted both computer and router
Still I see the old footer, I use plenty of new page classes but that shouldn't matter should it? as the main page.ss is including the Footer.ss. The template Im using is blackcandy.
Yea includes are cached quite harshly. For one of the sites I worked on (http://www.metroseeq.com/) all the google map overlays are nested includes inside nested includes and we had to run rm -rf /tmp/silverstripe-cache.* every time we made a change as even flushing couldn't solve the issues. I think this should be fixed now with 2.3
Sorry to rescue this old thread but I'm having exactly the same problem. I succesfully changed the footer text from the template a couple of day ago but now it won't update any changes I make. I'm having the problem with webmatrix working locally, too (windows 7). Any help would be appreciated! Thanks!
Edit: Sorted it out by creating a new silverstripe site with matrix, importing one by one the elements of the theme (.ss and .css), and then putting it back to the site with a new name.
