CSS changes not showing in rails app

I can also delete my application.css and bootstrap.css files located in app/assets/stylesheets folder and nothing happens. In my application.html.erb I have

<%= stylesheet_link_tag 'application', media: 'all', 'data-turbolinks-track' => true %>
<%= javascript_include_tag 'application', 'data-turbolinks-track' => true %>
<link href="assets/bootstrap.min.css" rel="stylesheet">
<link href="assets/application.css" rel="stylesheet">
<link href="assets/application.min.css" rel="stylesheet">

Any suggestion? Thanks!

Try opening the developer tools in your browser e.g. Chrome and checking for errors in the Javacript console - these will show you where the app is looking for the stylesheet files in question. It should be looking for them under assets/stylesheets/[blah].

Also, if you're trying to use Bootstrap you might be better off looking up the bootstrap rails gem which will hook all that up for you.
