WordPress is one of the most popular websites and blog site-building application in use today. There are 60 million websites that are using WordPress, which includes 10 million of the top sites. WordPress is one of the leading Content Management System (CMS) in use today.

The reasons for WordPress popularity are:

Easy to install and use.

Offers a variety of themes and plugins.

Mobile applications.

Other Features.

To put it in simple words, if you want to build a website or a blog site really fast, all that you need to do is to get a domain name and an internet hosting service provider or web server that has WordPress installed on it. WordPress will help you build your web or blog site in the shortest possible time without seeking help from a website programmer.

Another reason for WordPress being a leading web building tool is that it has free and paid themes for users to use in building their sites. The variety of themes offered is genuinely mind-boggling. You can find themes on any category or topic.

What if you come across a web or blog site that you really like and you want to use the same theme for your site. Well, first, you have to ascertain if the website has been built in WordPress. If it has, then you can go to the next step and find out the theme it’s using.

Let’s take the first step. There are different ways to find out if the website that you are interested in investigating has been built in WordPress. One is by looking at its source code:

Right-click on the website and select ‘view page source’: it will open a tab in which the source code is displayed. In the first 10-15 lines of the source code, you will see a similar line displayed. Now you can be sure that the site has been built in WordPress.


An easier way to find out if the site is built in WordPress is to install Google Sniffer with Google Chrome. It will appear in the browser bar, and as you visit different sites, the icon will change to show the software being used. If the site is in WordPress, the WordPress icon will be displayed.

Now that you have got to the website and found that it is indeed developed in WordPress, you can move on to finding the theme it’s using.
