Template Debugger


Do you get frustrated trying to work out what the template file you’re editing is? Ever had to echo/print some text to see if WordPress is picking up the file you expect it to?

If yes, then give this plugin a try, it simply adds a handy dropdown at the top of the admin bar giving you the ability to quickly see what theme template file(s) is being used, as well as what other files are being included, from themes and plugins.

Never get frustrated with creating child themes again, using Template Debugger you can generate a new child theme based on one of the installed parent themes, and Template Debugger does all the leg work! Just fill out the input fields and Template Debugger will create the theme directory, add in the style.css and functions.php

  • Quickly find out what template file(s) are being used

  • See where they’re included
