Dear computer programmer type boys & girls

Since there are multiple files using the same names, could you put the intended path in the header information?

 

Most of your users wear a number of hats. With a few exceptions ... "programmer" isn't one of them. Having the path information in the header would save us much grief by helping identify which of two same-name files were are editing.

Bill, that is a nice idea, but TBH the question should never even come up ... you should never edit files online. Instead, you should be working on your local 1:1 copy of your site, with a good editor like textpad. Textpad has a file list on the left side which will show you the full path at all times.

Same name files exist in admin/catalog, and also each root file in admin AND catalog have their own language files. I'm sure you can distinguish between a php page and a language file which only holds text defines, so that should be a nobrainer. For all other cases, see above.
