How to solve :

I know you bored from this bug, So we are here to help you! Take a deep breath and look at the explanation of your problem. We have many solutions to this problem, But we recommend you to use the first method because it is tested & true method that will 100% work for you.

Method 1

I see that you have selected store view, Main Website. Please select website view e.g. English and enable template path.

Method 2

I haven’t installed any language (default was English). For me it works (for version 1.9.2) when I choose “Current Configuration Scope:” -> “Default Store View”. Check a screenshot below: Magento configuration scope

Method 3

To enable template path hints follow the following steps:

  1. Go to Magento admin panel->systems->configuration
  2. Choose your store view on top left corner in Current Configuration Scope ex:english
  3. Go to Advanced tab. Under that click on Developer->Debug. If you want both block and view template path hints, click yes on Template path hints (phtml files) and Add Block Names to Hints.
  4. Refresh your frontend
  5. List item

Note: Use and implement method 1 because this method fully tested our system.
