Ever look at a site and wonder how it was made? I do, all the time. I’m sure most of you are aware you can simply right click and “View Source” in Chrome and IE, and “View Page Source” in Firefox and see the html of a page. But here are some tools to easily see some other stuff.
What WordPress Theme is That?
Just what it sounds like, What WordPress Theme is That? allows you to paste in the url of a site and see the theme the site is using, along with any plugins. Handy and easy if you don’t want to go through the source code looking for “wp-content” and “wp-includes.”
Also a handy way to see if a site you like (or dislike!) is made using a certain CMS. Just go to whatcms.org and type or paste in the url of the site in question. Per their site, they detect CMS’s from a list of approximately 100 CMS applications and services.
And I learned something new today! Quote from the What CMS site: “Keep in mind a website may use multiple CMS’. WordPress may be used as the primary CMS, while using vBulletin on a subdomain (forum.example.com) or subdirectory (example.com/forum). For this reason, you can enter any url in the form above to see what CMS is being used on a specific page.” Now that you think about it, it’s definitely possible, why not?…I just hadn’t considered it. Good to keep learning!
