      • cache/smarty/compile

    2. Delete all the files in the folders, except of index.php.

    3. Reload your website in browser to take a look at the changes you have made.

  3. Disable CCC for css files

    NOTE: Smart Cache for CSS takes all CSS files and combines them into one file. That is why you may not see changes on your website after editing your theme stylesheets.

    1. Log into Prestashop admin panel.

    2. Navigate to Advanced Parameters > Performance.

    3. Look for CCC (Combine, Compress and Cache) section.

    4. Disable Smart cache for CSS as well as other CCC options if they are enabled.
