  • tshirtfiend


    Is there an easy way to see which PHP files a page uses? I’m trying to troubleshoot an issue, and there’s some stray code, but I’m not sure which template it’s getting pulled from. I think it may be from one of the plug-ins that I’m using, but it’s a little tough to tell, since all I’m looking at is source code.

    I’ve already marked my template files with comments at the beginning/end, but that’s not enough. It’s still somewhere else. Any suggestions?

    can you tell what is your issue? basically you have header.php, footer.php, page.php, index.php, archive.php, comment.php, sidebar.php.,
    index.php is a combination of header,footer,sidebar…



    Yeah, I have an extra <div> in there, and I’m not sure where it’s coming into the mix. It’s just a clearer div.

    Somehow, it’s getting inserted between the last post and the sidebar.

    I’d like to know this too.

    I have my Posts page pointing to a static page, but no matter what PHP file I edit (including posts.php), the static content that I’m editing doesn’t change.

    theme’s single.php show single post views
    theme’s page.php shows page views
    theme’s index.php usually controls home page

    if you have the time and patience, you could add the file name as html comment at the beginning of every php file of your theme – and then look at the html code in your browser of with firebug.

    The problem for me is that I’m using a plugin (Shopp) that has it’s own pages and templates. Some of these are part of the plug-in core, others are editable. So it’s not clear to figure out what’s loading.
