Bit of a strange one.

I have put a script in the miscellaneous scripts section in Configuration->General->Design, but it is not showing when I look at the page source. I have tried putting <script>code here</script> and just plain text, such as 12345, but when I refresh the website, it does not show in the page source.

I have refreshed caches through Magento admin etc. but it still just does not update. Tried logging out and back in, same thing. The text I enter shows in the database, so it is getting saved back, but just not showing on frontend.

Any ideas?

It may be that the theme did not include th logic for this. Try using the out of the box themes, rwd/default or base/default. I know that code works out of the box so I imagine it's a custom theme getting in the way.


My issue was with caching in the end!

For some reason the clear cache functions in magento admin just were not working. I manually deleted everything under var/cache, as well as a cache folder for a full page cache extension I have installed, and the changes came through fine!
