    Heh, this addon is fun. I don't recommend using this addon as the only reference for styling though because there are templates that doesn't make sense alone. Unfortunately it seems that there are conflicts with some addons. There are at least conflicts with the Widget Framework addon on pages using widget framework widgets and pages using the User Essentials addon.

    I have also noticed some template errors for example in /templates/conversation_view.

    This add-on doesn't break any other add-on though, right? It just can't display certain templates without producing errors? This is to be expected.

    Hey Waindigo, is it possible to view admin templates?

    It depends on which template you are viewing. For example, if you were building a new calendar add-on and you wanted to see how a template called calendar_monthly_view looked, you would go to www.yoursite.com/templates/calendar_monthly_view (or www.yoursite.com/index.php?templates/calendar_monthly_view) and you would see how that template would look once your add-on is finished.

    Exactly what it looks like will depend on the template you are viewing. Other than that it will look like any other XenForo page (or admin page if you are using the admin template viewer).

    Hi Waindigo, I have a suggestion to make. Currently you need to copy template names and paste them in the URL yourself to view templates. Wouldn't it be easier if we can view templates with one click? I have something like this in mind (notice the eye):

    Thanks so much. Very much appreciated. Although, just for the record, I won't be spending the charity's money on beer (but I will have one!).

    I noticed that the Preview link isn't included in template search results. Would be cool to have it there :)
    Also, I use Chris Deemings add-on to have an admin template search function. I would be in your debt if the Preview link can somehow be added there, too.
