Template not updating after editing in website builder

on 1/24/15, 5:05 AM 1,655 views

I have the following simple template. It works fine in the website. If I make any changes to it it upates just fine. But if I edit the name or biography fields in the website editor and save it. Changes made in the code no longer appears in the website. I have tried upgrading the module, restarting the server but nothing works. The only thing that works is to uninstall the module and reinstall it. 

<template id="biography">
            <t t-call="website.layout">
                <t t-set="title">Academy</t>
                <div class="oe_structure"/>
                <div class="oe_structure">
                    <div class="container">
                        <h3 t-field="person.name"/>
                        <div t-field="person.biography"/>
                <div class="oe_structure"/>

It's been a long time but same situation.

I found a work around but still need 1 uninstall:

My template id is 'website.pricing'

Template is stored in ir_ui_view table, so query:

select id, type,inherit_id,key,active from ir_ui_view where key='website.pricing';

Got id of the template in this table, now DELETE it.

Now if you try to refresh browser, it may say 500 - template not found.

Uninstall and reinstall your module, that will create a new ir_ui_view record

and now, changes in template source code will be updated when module is upgraded.
