I have been trying to edit some files from the frontend folder.
On this folder I have the following folders: base, default, rwd and typologancee.
I have to create a specific filter which is going to be used on specific categories. I have thought in developing this one to append the code on category/view.phtml and products/list.phtml even though I also have thought in doing it by developing a module.
I do not know which one is the correct way but my real doubt is how to edit these files, because I have done it and the page continues showing the old code. I edited every category/view.phtml files from every frontend subfolder but there are no results.
I deleted the cache folder, reindex some data, deleted cache and cookies from chrome, as well as giving permissions to these files but nothing is happening. I would like some urgent support because I can not do any test.
**EDIT 1: I have achieved modify the file with results, but I am using visual studio code, and I did not modifying the correct file because when I find by word, some folders are being hidden when search and these folders have a diffent colour and I have not idea about why is happening this. I only have results if I modify the file under base folder, but I have read that this is a bad practice, so, what should I do? The template typologancee is active, but when I modify their files nothing happens. Thanks.
