I'm very new to Drupal, and I want to edit some text on the front page. In the page.tpl.php, I have this code print render($page['content']), if I remove it, then the area that I want to edit with is disappeared from the front page, so I know this is the right part, but how can I find out which page, content, or node is being called in the backend?

I'm using Drupal 7.55.

I'd recommend installing the Devel module and enabling Webprofiler. It gives you a lot of useful meta information about the current request, including the controller and route used:

  • How do you enable Webprofiler on D7? I know in D8 it's a module that comes with Devel, but I don't see it as a module in D7.

    I actually have the same question. I'm using drupal 7.55 and I installed and enable module Devel, but I don't see Webprofiler. Commented Aug 10, 2017 at 8:27

    The question wasn't about Drupal 7 until after I answered it. The web profiler is from Symfony, so not available in Drupal 7.
