Okay, that’s not quite as confusing as it initially sounds! More and more websites are now built with underlying content management systems like WordPress and Joomla.
While this is good, the best part is that many of these websites utilize custom built themes, whether free or paid. Premium ones are developed structurally and systematically, with designs that scale great on desktops or mobile devices.
Responsive web design, as it is called.
But what if you like a particular design and want to see if you can use something like that on your website, or even a webpage — for example that dedicated landing or squeeze page you’re developing?
Luckily, it’s not hard to find out what theme a site is using.
You can peek under the hood, check out for hints by taking a look at the source of your chosen page. But a couple of solutions exist that accomplish this process a lot more elaborately.
And perhaps the best one around goes by the name of WPThemeDetector.
It digs deep and not only provides details and version number of the theme a WordPress powered site is using, but also author or company details of the designer.
This online detection tool also finds and lists any plugins used on the website you input, along with links to download these extensions. A few additional details are also offered — including previous analysis of a given site, where applicable.
Another less fancy site is What WordPress Theme Is That?, and it too provides similar functionality.
