Web Part Debugging Tip

Here's a little tip on SharePoint that I wanted to share with everyone. When debugging a web part on a SharePooint site and there are problems bringing up the page, try the following. Manually enter the URL of the page in question and add "?contents=1" to the end of the URL. Once you press enter, the page returned is the "Manage Web Part Page".

This will list all web parts on that page, including their title, type, display on page, and personalized properties. This will help identify if other web parts on the page are causing problems with opening the page.
