Sometimes it's easier to edit ee templates on your local machine rather than using the Template Manager editor. The template manager in older versions of ee isn't awesome, it's mostly just a text field. It's easier to search through all your templates for that one class you used. Incorporate a repo and multiple developers can work at the same time without stepping on each other's toes.
I needed an rss feed. I created the new template group, set to save template as text file and ftp'ed to my local machine. After adding all the tags I uploaded to the server and remembered to change the template type to RSS. Need to make a few adjustments and I'll be done.
But none of my changes were showing up on the site. After about 20 minutes I finally remembered that each template type has a different file extension. I was editing and uploading the .html file but the site was showing the .feed file.
