I created a new node template named node--artist-page.tpl.php and it worked fine. but then, (i'm brand new at this) when saw i made some errors with it i tried deleting it but Drupal keeps loading it!
i can tell because i echoe'd out an alert saying the 'my new node tpl is running'
in addition to clearing the cache (5 or more times) I even put it in the trash but it still loads!, anyone have any experience like this? or know how to fix?
am really stuck right now.
