Here you go Zach: I need to change templates. I need to modify every occurence of "member.php". I don't know the gallery software very well yet, I'm still installing and learning. So I need a way to search all templates. Further, I need to search inside templates. Neither phpMyAdmin or vbulletin provide very slick tools for these tasks. In fact I don't believe they support searching within blob fields period.
So I write a snippet of code that dumps all templates from the database to my local file system. I happen to choose the php file extension because that triggers my editor to use syntax highlighting for php, most useful for vb
Now I can use professional tools to find strings and edit templates. To accomplish tasks like "change all occurences of this to that, even though you do not yet know where the template is used".
Which brings me back to the question. Can you briefly tell me what to click or where to go to see these templates in action? Or better yet, present a generic solution to this problem: Here is a template, where is it used?
