The only urlvariabletool that I have ever been able to get working is ?flush=1. How do others work? I want to use ?showtemplate=1 but when I put that at the end of the url the page looks exactly the same as without it.

Is there some variable I need in my ss files like $SilverStripeNavigator so I can see the output of the urlvariabletools?

Your site has to be in devmode for it to work. Make sure you have set your environment type to dev
