I am trying to make changes to so I can change the way my blog works and looks (i.e heading styles, no comments, etc). However any change i do does not have any effect. Even if i delete or rename the file to something else the blog still functions normal??

After reading various topics in this section i thought i will try adding ?flush=1 to the end of my blog url, that worked for one change....but anything i have done since wont change. I ended up changing my headings from h2 to h6 (just testing!) now i cannot change it back.

I am still learning Silverstripe to any assistance on this would be much much appreciated. Am I even editing the right file??

Thanks for your help.


EDIT: I worked it out! I didnt realised that I had moved the into my blog section of my theme, when i did ?flush=1 it changed the link to that, I was still editing the original location (inside blog folder not themes) hence not seeing the changes!!!
