Magento : Quick debug for template path hint & block

As a Magento Developer I think this is the best feature on magento to locate template file path & block type. Now  I will show how to use this trick to view template path hint & block.. simply use GET URL parameter, for example http://yourwebsitedomain/?your_get_var=your_get_value .

By default if you want to debug template you have to enable it on menu System->Configuration->Advanced->Developer->Template Path Hint

ok then, let’s get straight to the point


copy file app\code\core\Mage\Core\Block\Template.php




then, edit Template.php file, find function “public function getShowTemplateHints()”, replace the content with this

voila!! mission complete 😀
