file edits not "taking" in website


I hope this forum is ok for this question. I have a strange problem going on. I am trying to edit a navigation link in my home page. The link is in a file named theme.html. What's weird is that the edits are not having an effect on the web page. I have used the file editor Joe and the file editor in Midnight Commander to comment out the link. In both cases the file saved successfully but when I reload the home page the navigation link I comment out is still there!!

This is not a browser cache issue. I have checked the page on multiple machines and browsers.

I tried stopping and restarting the web server and I even rebooted the machine and still the problem persists.

BTW - I was successfully editing this file just 2 or 3 days ago and made several other edits to the links in the navigation bar.

ALSO - I am able to successfully edit html files in another directory in the website using Joe and MC.

I am using Mandrake 9.2 and Xoops cms.

Anyone have any suggestions about how to make these file edits "take"?

I resolved this problem. I had set an option in Xoops control panel to prevent altering the theme.html file. I went to the control panel and reset this option back to allow edits of the theme.html file.
