It helps
By , for WP 3.9.1

we have several different templates on our site and this helps to see quickly which main template file and sub-template files are being used. thats really it.

does the job, and we like it like that
By , for WP 3.9.1

as always, i love plugins that do one things and do it well. This is sweet, so handy, i don't have to go through contortions to see what my theme code is really doing.

i will echo others: nag messages give a negative taste whenever one sees them, which counteracts the positive benefit of getting the reviews you want :)

And the plugin would be perfect if it showed *every* file included, not just the "get_template_part()"

thank you!

Convenient
By ,

This is a convenient tool for trying to figure out which files affect particular pages. I wish there were more specificity, but I suppose it's not supposed to be all-encompassing. One truly annoying thing, though - the plugin gives a pop up in the admin screen asking you to rate it, and gives you these two options: Yes, take me there! - I've already done this! It should include an "ignore" or "dismiss" button as well.

not show include
By , for WP 3.8.1

not show template part that use include. Why "include"? Because get_template_part does not transmit post variables to "part".

Very useful plugin, no issues
By , for WP 3.8.1

This plugin has been very helpful when having to go into sites built by other developers as it shows what file is creating what page. However, as nickth mentioned, it would be even more helpful if it showed all files instead of just the main template that the page uses.

Shows PHP files - just not plugin php files
By , for WP 3.8

What The File is a great plugin to help developers speed up finding out which php files are used within a page. My only complaint is that it doesn't show ALL of the php files, like those called from a plugin, which would make this plugin much better.
