Fairly new to Magento 2. Working from a cloned version of another site and trying to make simple, cosmetic changes to the custom theme homepage here:
Any change I make manifests immediately, but unrelated parts of the page break at the same time. Most of what's in
page-header disappears, and a new div called
nav-sections appears with all our categories in it.
These exact changes occur regardless of how I alter
default.xml -- even adding a character to a string causes them.
My hunch is it's a question of workflow, and I'm still unclear about when and how Magento 2 decides to create and serve files from
I should also note that I'm making these changes in production mode, and that running
deploy doesn't fix anything.
What am I doing wrong here?
