Using Firebug in IE

Tuesday, December 07, 2010 8:39 AM by nairdo

If you're developing complex modules for your Arena website, you'll probably need a tool such as Firebug (a plugin for Firefox) to test how your CSS changes will effect layout in the browser.  Once you've used Firebug you'll have a hard time trying to manage without it.

That's great for Firefox, but what about IE?  With Firebug Lite you can also have much of Firebug's great functionality inside IE too -- you just need to add a script reference into the "head" section of your webpage...

<script type="text/javascript" src="https://getfirebug.com/firebug-lite.js"></script>

If you use our custom Inject Javascript Arena module, you can have that (or any other javascript reference) put directly into the head of the HTML with a few simple module settings:

The module settings

And if you add it to your site's Arena template and only allow admins view permission to that module, it will have absolutely no impact to anyone else.  Enjoy.

 

** You also need to add this "bookmarklet" (Launch Firebug Lite) to your your Favorites in IE which is used to start Firebug Lite.
