Debug Comments

When building a new skin it can be useful to make 'Display Debug Comment' checked in ThemeBuilder > (select skin) > Options tab

This will display extra information when viewing html source or using a tool such as Firebug in Firefox.

Example Output:

Set Skin by URL

You can also add a query string to the end of the page address to force Confluence to use any skin when ThemeBuilder is the Theme for that space.

Example: Add 'skin=root' to see how that space will display in the default ThemeBuilder skin.
(if this is the first parameter in a page address, use a '?' to preface - if there are other parameters use '&')

So  - http://domain/page
becomes - http://domain/page?skin=root

Press enter and reload the page to see it with the default skin.

Remove the query string and reload the page to see it in the skin you set through ThemeBuilder.

This is a great tool for comparing small changes against the default ThemeBuilder skin, and is also good for troubleshooting if you are not sure if something in your work has broken the current skin.
