How to Find Out What WordPress Theme a Site is Using Tutorial
We used 3 methods to discover which WordPress theme a site is using
Number One: BuiltWith!
BuiltWith.com is a Technology Lookup Tool and technology information profiler tool. Find out what a website is built with whether it is WordPress or not. It also includes everything from Google Analytics to DNS providers. This tool can really show you what services a website is using to operate.
Number Two: IsItWP.com
Is it WordPress? This tool will tell you. It works great for themes and even shows a child theme (see the video). We have had it not show the plugins but the third method can help with this.
Number Three: The Source Code
The source code can show you a ton as long as you know what you are looking for. In Chrome, if you right-click any webpage and go to View Source you will see the underlying code.
Next Search for “themes/” you will see the theme that is being used. To search click either Command F on Mac or Control F on Windows.
After you figure out the theme name I then go to Google.com and enter the following to find more info about the theme: WordPress Theme [insert theme name here] which should show you where you can get the same WordPress theme as well.
