Having trouble tracking down which theme template file is outputting the current page’s content?

Here’s a simple hook you can throw in your functions.php file to save you some time and headaches!

add_action('wp_head', 'show_template');
function show_template() {
    global $template;
    if (current_user_can('administrator')) echo basename($template);
}

Notice we added a check to make sure the visitor is logged in with administrator privileges. If this is on a development site, just omit the if condition if you don’t want to have to be logged in to see the filename.

Hope that helps!
