Hi everyone, I believe this is one of the most popular tools you need when developing a Magento store even if you are a developer or store owner. Magento already has a feature which allows you to turn on template path hints in frontend. So, it is easy. But how to show template path hints in backend. Is it really "magic"? Well, no it is also an easy one.
Turn on template path hints in frontend
You can turn on this feature for a specific store view and it can be done in backend. Log in Magento backend and go to System > Configuration > Developer and find in Debug tab. Template Path Hints option is only shown after you switch to the store view which you want to enable it. Uncheck "Use Website" checkbox and select yes for the drop down next to Template Path Hints. Click Save Config and refresh your frontend. See, you can find path to your template files now.
Template path hints in backend
Ok, this is only necessary sometimes when you need to make changes in backend. You cannot do it by turning on / off in backend but a small piece of code.
You can put this piece of code in any config.xml file. Simply, you can add it into config.xml file which can be found in app/etc. Remember to remove them after you finish debugging. Enjoy coding!
