DBabble Template Usage by Filename

Below is a list of template filenames, with what they are used for. To find which source file a page you are viewing is generated from, make sure the
tpl_names setting is true, and view the page source. There will be a comment at the start with the source filename. Template names containing text that can be seen by non-administrator users are in yellow.

This page is just a rough guide. More detail will be added later.
