Issue with Cache (Maybe)

I am trying to modify some of the components of Piwik (e.g. adding a direct link to the dashboard. However, no changes I introduce in the files (e.g. Template) are propagating to the dashboard.

I have tried clearing browser cache, emptying the /tmp folder in Piwik, etc. Any recommendations?

Disable building assets in global.ini.php:

; if set to 1, javascript and css files will be included individually
; this option must be set to 1 when adding, removing or modifying javascript and css files
disable_merged_assets = 1
