How to know What WordPress theme is used by a Website?

With more and more premium WordPress theme now available on themeforest and other theme marketplaces the cost to build a website for a small business has been greatly reduced as compared to 7 to 8 years ago. More and more themes on these marketplaces are now being developed mobile responsive using the latest frameworks like Twitter bootstrap. Many business owners, before making a decision to redesign and redevelop their website, see a very creatively designed website of another business. Many times these creatively designed websites are merely customized version of a WordPress theme which may be readily available on marketplaces like themeforest.

So, the question is How Do I know What Theme is being used by that Website?

Before we answer that question its important to first know whether that website uses WordPress as a CMS or not. Inorder to find that out, the easiest way is to [pwal id=”50640677″ description=””]

install an add-on for your browser that will tell you what CMS a site is running on. Chrome Sniffer is one of such add-ons that you can install on your chrome browser. Another add-on is Wappalyzer which is Firefox.

After using the above add-ons if you find that the website is indeed running WordPress CMS then the next task is to find the theme being used. Here are two ways to find which theme is being used by a Website:

what theme is it

1. If you are tech savvy and know CSS and HTML then you can view the source code and CSS stylesheet and can easily determine which theme is being used. However, not everyone is tech-savvy and hence the second option is very easy.

2.  Just go to What WordPress Theme is That.  On What WordPress Theme is That you simply have to enter the url of the website and it would automatically tell you which premium theme is being used.
