There are many times when you visit a WordPress blog, and you simply like the theme used by the blog. In that precise moment, you ask yourself “What WordPress theme is that?” and now the hard task is to find the name of that WordPress theme. In the previous article, I’ve talked about 4 Tricks to Find Out What Plugin a WordPress Site is Using.
I’ll show you some tweak to find out the name of WordPress theme being used by any blog, and you can quickly download it, and install it on your blog.
Use WordPress Theme Detector Websites
This is the easiest method for any non-technical blogger to find the WordPress theme name and company behind it. There are few WordPress theme detector online services which reveal the theme name. You need to add the URL of WordPress blog, and these online services will show the theme name. You can use WordPress theme detector online services like WPThemedetector and WhatWPthemeisthat for this purpose.
Check Theme Source Code
This is another method to find the details of WordPress theme used by a website. This tweak works with most of the WordPress blog, but sometime blog owner removes the credit information and change the theme name which makes it hard for you to identify the theme.
- Open the desired WordPress blog in your browser.
- Right click anywhere on the page and select “View Page Souce”.
- Now find style.css which located in /wp-content/themes folder.
- Double click and copy the whole link in which the style.css is located in a new tab/window on your browser.
Note : If you don’t find style.css, try to search /wp-content/themes to find theme name.
Email To Blog Owner
You should send an Email to blog owner, and ask him about the theme he is using. If you are lucky enough, you will find the answer to your question.
