How to display the entire $page array like shown below? I have devel module installed and have tried "dsm($page)" but that just shows the word "Array".

enter image description here

    If dsm($page) just shows an array, then the variable named $page in that context is an empty array. Either that or you have a broken version of Devel/Krumo. Or, you haven't actually called dsm(), but drupal_set_message(), which is an altogether different function, and doesn't format arrays/objects automatically

You can try dsm($page) in page.tpl.php of your theme to see the contents of $page array.

As mentioned by Clive, context really matters. If you will try to print $page array when it has no elements then it will display word Array.
