Hi @snow_xu 

  • Clear your browser to remove possible cache issues.
  • Make sure any asset routes are relative, i.e. files/configs are being loaded from the live site instead of local development environment. 
  • If the side-menu/drawer is a javascript template make sure you are editing the correct file or that is is loaded in from proper location.
  • Keep and eye on the cli to make sure it is actually updating the files that are being changed.


Beyond that you will need to be much better in the description of the problem as others cannot see what you are working on.
