Customization of extension JS, CSS, and PHP not reflecting changes
I have the Atlas banner extension installed on my Magento store and I'm experiencing two issues with it.
First of all it has a banner caption feature which is filled from an image title field on the backend. This field has a verification that it does not exceed 50 characters. I was able to find the PHP file that contained this snippet of code after several hours of digging and I increased it to 255 characters. For some reason it is still throwing an error when I insert more than 50 characters. I was able to do a workaround for this for now by just going directly to the database and updating the title of the image on the table and it allows me to exceed the 50 characters.
Now here's where I'm really confused - I have a megamenu that keeps dropping behind the banner image. When I inspect element there is a small snippet of CSS here that is being fed by a JS file.
<li style="float: none; list-style: none; position: absolute; width: 1248px; z-index: 50; display: block;"> <a target="_blank" href=""> <img src="http://dev.com/media/atlas_banner/slide4.png?timestamp=1467243228410" title="Weekly Special Now Only $599.99!"> </a> <div class="bx-caption"><span>Weekly Special Now Only $599.99!</span></div></li>
Does anyone know why this would be an issue still? Is the extension itself storing this information somewhere or how do I clear this?
