This plugin puts a page under the microscope and displays various information such as version history, participants lists, labels and more.

Information that's usually hidden away, or placed somewhere you don't want it to be, can be made more visible or removed - this is particularly useful when working with custom themes (such as Theme Builder) or when working with formal documents (such as contracts, specifications, etc).
