    Hi, does Thematic have a Debug switch that echoes the theme files on the page?

    I used this in Carrington Theme -> define('CFCT_DEBUG', true); so I could see where the things on my screen were coming from.

    Thanks

  2. Hi,

    currently we don't have a debug feature. I can implement an extended version that displays the theme file on top of the page and some additional features about the loops on the pages.

    I just started looking a Thematic, so I wasn't trying to give you extra work. Unless I'm mistaken, Thematic's strength is using Child Themes to override CSS and PHP from the Parent Theme. If that's the case, changing the Parent Theme is anti productive.

    However, you might want to be able to see which Thematic functions are generating elements on the page output. That way you could know if an element is coming from the Parent theme or from an override in the Child theme's function.php file.

    But like I said, I'm just barely getting my feet wet with Thematic so I don't understand the work flow well enough to know if something like that is an advantage or a waste of effort.
