When I include $SilverStripeNavigator just before my </body> tag in mysite/templates/ nothing actually changes.

If I add a debug line in SilverStripeNavigator() in sapphire/core/control/ContentController.php (something like echo "this function is successfully being called by the template";) it shows that the function itself is being called, but nothing is being displayed except for that echo.

Any ideas?

(And before you ask, I am logged into the CMS, I have tried different users, and also a half a dozen browsers)

Well that worked fine.

But is there a way to only show that if/when a user is logged into the CMS (ie. after the site is live and no longer in 'dev' mode)?
