FAQ

I don’t see the toolbar.

Is the Toolbar (Show Toolbar when viewing site) option in your profile page is checked?
You can find your profile page is in your WordPress admin -> Users -> Profile.

I don’t see the current template file name in the toolbar.

Do you logged in as “Administrator”? Other role users like “Editor” can’t see the file name. If your WordPress is multisite, only super admin can see the file name.

I’dont think this plugin is working properly.

Please try below:

  • Activate one of the default themes.

Now the plugin work properly? Then it means there may be a compatibility issue between your theme and this plugin, so let me know your theme’s name and where I can get it.

  • Try to stop all plugins other than this plugin.

Now the plugin work properly? Then it means there may be a compatibility issue between one of those other plugins and this plugin, so let me know those plugins names and where I can get them.

I love this plugin! It works very well and shows the WP Template file being used to render a particular webpage. My only gripe is that it is poorly documented. I had almost given up but this article by @lukefive which tells you how to enable the admin bar on the viewed page helped me get it working. Thank you.

Very useful for developers. How about showing parts that are coming from get_template_part() as well? Thank you!

Its functionality is basic but very useful, it is a classic in my installations to develop more easily and with a lot of information
