Hi Everyone,

I am in the process of installing and theming a magento shop for a client, but i can’t seem to find the option that surrouds al blocks on a page with a red line, and describes from which file that specific block comes.

Can anyone point me in the right direction ?

Thanks in afvance!

Jelmo

You need to follow this steps:

1) System -> Configuration
2) Select last option ("Developer").
3) Change the “Current Configuration Scope” to “Defulat Store View” or the store view that you want to debug.
4) Select the fieldset “Debug” innto Developer options.
5) The second option, “Template Path Hints”, that’s your option.

Oh Riiight, that was it!

I forgot to select the store in Current config scope.Whis is honestly a weird thing that you have to select a store before you can even see the options. Grey ‘em out or something, or place a hint.

But thanks for the help, i thought i was going nuts smile
