Not planned template editor: link: show fields which can be used in this template

I think it would be very handy, especially to those new to xenforo, to have a sidebar link on the template edit page for each template that would dump the variables which can be used in that template. So when you were editing, you could "click to show available fields" and have a quick window right there to insert a field from and then you would not only know what's available but also have the syntax correct on the first try ;)

While the idea is reasonable, it's unfortunately not viable as something that can be done as you ask. The values available to the template can vary; the same template can be called in various ways. The only way to determine this is at run time.
