WTF: What The File Plugin Displays WordPress Template File in Admin Bar

Ever wonder what template file is generating the WordPress page you’re looking at? The What the File plugin is a very useful tool, similar to the “What Template File Am I Viewing” plugin, except with a nicer display in the admin bar.

This addition to the menu can only be seen by an administrator. Clicking the template file name will allow you to edit the file inside the WordPress dashboard. This plugin can be especially handy for theme development or even to help beginner WordPress users start to understand where the basic templates are used.

The What the File plugin is available for free from the WordPress plugin repository. Now, if it could only add support for popular third party plugins such as BuddyPress, then we’d really be cooking!
