I'm following a guide on how to use a master page. Currently, when I add changes to my master page the template which it is based off of doesn't change. I can delete and remake the template page, and pages which use it have the new content, but as soon
as I delete the page that the template is based off of (which I have to, since the template parameters on it cause errors) the pages that use the template lose the added content. Is there anything I can do to fix this without having to make a brand new template
each time I update the master page? Thanks in advance for any help provided.

By template you mean the "content page"? What if you try a basic change such as adding a h1 header or whatever to the master page. It should then show up on content pages that are using this mater page.
Not sure what you mean by "make a brand new template each time I update the master page" but for now it seems there is something wrong in how you are using or understand master pages. Basically it merges two (or more) pages togehter at runtime and so updating
the master page layout should be taken into account for all "content pages" that are uisng this particular master page.
Maybe if uou post a link to the guide you are following we might spot a possible source of confusion?
What if for now you are are playing with very simple master and content pages with very simple changes? Do you have still this issue then ?

If the changes aren't being picked up by the web server, then it could very well be that it's just a caching issue and starting/stopping that site may take care of it, or adjusting the caching settings.

Thank you for the replies. After a few tries the template began working properly, so I'm guessing cached data really is the problem.
