Not what it sounded like

I thought this was going to help me identify which template was responsible for a certain page component I was having trouble with. However, it only provides the name of the "parent" template. It doesn't list all the files involved in building the page. I don't understand how other reviewers found it so helpful.

does the job, but wtf is this other b.s.?

I just downgraded to 2 stars :( the latest version shows a distracting icon in the "what the file" menu, and a "powered by" item in the dropdown. Sorry guys. This plugin is to help me concentrate on my work. If it distracts me with that junk, it is not doing its job.

I got in the code and removed the junk, but this on top of the nag message just gives a bad taste in the mouth. If your plugin is good, you don't need put junk in people's way, they will be eager to find you!

The rest of the review is still true:

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! (but please up your self-confidence and remove the garbage! :D )
