There are some cases when clearing the cache is very useful:
- you have edited a template
- you have translated some text
- you have replaced a some picture in your theme
...and basically in any situation you expect the theme to be changed but it didn't.
Go to your back office > Advanced parameters > Performance - and turn on "Force compilation" just like in the picture below:
This is always the basic help if something's not working right.

He enjoys finding ways to make his life simpler, and that is the philosophy he incorporates into all his projects.

Unfortunatelly, it’s very very hard to keep the Prestashop theme valid. Even the default theme is not 100% valid… for example:
1 .There’s JS in CSS in the code – inserted by various modules and the theme can’t do nothing about it :(
2. Also the “&” character is a problem in the code. But it is generated by the system, not by the theme.
So as a result the themes are invalid :( But you won’t find any valid right now – Prestashop core system and modules have to be changed.
