figuring out how to custominze WP - can you echo function calls? (2 posts)

    I'm trying to hack at the code a bit to try to customize things, but it's a little tough figuring out exactly what are the series of functions/files being used to render a particular page.

    What I'd really be interested in is if there is a PHP function that echos out the name every function it calls, or something like that to see a trace of the calls when you load up a page. Does this exist? thanks.

    I'd look through your templates and then lookup any function whose purpose isn't obvious on http://codex.wordpress.org/

    Another good way to see the flow of code through WordPress is to use the PHPxref tool.
