    I'm sure this has been asked a million times but the only answers I can find are from old versions (<1.3) that don't match current (1.5) controls.

    I'm having a devil of time getting template modifications to show up. I suspect I need to rebuild the cache but I don't see a specific rebuild option for that. How do I rebuild the template cache? Thanks!

    Are these template modifications your own or part of an add-on?

    You shouldn't need to rebuild anything to get template modifications to show.

    What do you see in the list with regards to this:

    Mods I am making to the template. Right now it says 2/0/0

    Edit: check that. I made changes to the member_card in the template list (Flat Awesome template). When I look under template modifications the member_card I see is for XMG.

    The ones I see on the modifications list have been made by adds-on, I believe.

    If it shows as 2/0/0 then it is being applied.

    It's not really clear whether you are editing the template directly or creating a template modification.

    I'm editing the template directly, not creating a template modification.

    It's possible then that any edits you are making are being overridden by the template modifications applied by add-ons.
    You can test that by temporarily disabling them.

    That makes perfect sense, I'll check it out. Thanks!

    I am so stumped.

    I am making changes to the member_card at {domain}/admin.php?templates/member_card.559/edit&style_id=3

    I have made the changes and checked "Prevent template modifications from being automatically applied", then clicked Save all changes.

    I can see the changes in View Custom Changes and View History.

    I turned off XMG which indicates it has modified the member_card template.

    I have clicked into Modified Templates, opened both entries under XMG for member_card and unchecked "Automatically apply template modification", then saved. Both entries are lined out on the list.

    When I go back and look at Template Modifications for member_card, the Template Contents do not contain the changes I made manually to the templates.

    The changes do appear in the table xf_template -> template. They also appear to be in xf_template -> template_parsed

    Anywhere else I should check?

    They won't if you are manually editing the template.
