How to: the Player Debug Widget
With the Player Debug Widget, you can monitor changes in your content while previewing it live on the site. Use the widget for a debugging process, especially when you're making changes to the appearance and/or when you're updating the topics assigned to the application.
In general, it takes up to 5 minutes to publish the changes you saved. To see your changes faster on your site, do a hard refresh/clear cache - you should be able to see changes after 2-3 minutes.
The Player Debug Widget is designed to help you test the Inline Manual player right in your application. With the widget you can:
• Check if the player is installed on the page/website,
• Display the most recent time the player is updated in the application.
