Theming

Theme Developer module

This module which is part of the Devel module in Drupal 6, makes theming a great deal easier. It makes it quick to find out what selector in what stylesheet, or what .tpl file, or what function, is controlling the output - so that you can make changes directly.

Enable the block, and you will see a grey box, 'Themer Info', in the bottom left of your screen. Click on it to enable the Theme Developer tool which allows you to click on any element on your page and see information about what is outputting it.

Forcing a refresh of a stylesheet

In Drupal 6, if you add '?R' (without the parentheses) after the stylesheet name (e.g. style.css?R) in the theme.info file, the browser is forced to refresh the stylesheet rather than using the one in cache.
