No More Frustration – Reveal the Theme File in Use

For a moment everything seems to come crashing down when you discover no visible changes at the front end after having troubleshot or modified an entire theme file! Apparently it was a wrong file you had been working on. Here’s a superb plugin called Reveal Template to make visible the theme template file in use to create the current page displayed, via description in the form of a footer and/or tag.

Website developers and support staff will be able to avoid confusion that arises for the lack of display of the template file in the process of being edited.

As a pre-condition, the theme must call the wp_footer() template tag for the information to appear in the site’s footer.
Template tag that will display the file name:

<?php c2c_reveal_template(); ?>

where, c2c_reveal_template() shows the template name.

To only retrieve the template filename, use

<?php $template = c2c_reveal_template(false); ?>

You have the option to activate Reveal Template plugin whenever you need it.
