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.

    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.
