Have you ever wanted to know what theme WordPress is using a website? Often, we receive emails from readers who ask us for help in finding the exact topic that a particular website uses. In this article, we’ll show you how easy it is to find out which WordPress LMS theme is using a particular website.
When you start a new site, choosing the right topic is a very important decision.
He often has ideas and inspiration that he saw elsewhere. In some cases, you may want your site to have almost the same design and features as the other website you saw on the Internet.
This can be possible specifically if this website uses one of the thousands of free and paid WordPress themes available on the market.
And, fortunately, it’s pretty easy to find out which WordPress theme the website uses.
Find WordPress Theme used by a Website WPLMS
One of the easiest ways to define a WordPress theme used by a website is WPLMS. This is an online tool that allows you to search for plugins and themes used on the WordPress website.
First, you need to visit the WPLMS website and enter the URL of the website you want to check.
WPLMS first checks to see if the site uses WordPress. If this is a website based on WordPress, then WPLMS will check which WordPress theme is using the website. It will also try to detect the WordPress plugins used by the website.
After that, it will show you the results with more detailed information about plugins and the theme used by the website.
Perhaps WPLMS cannot provide you with detailed information about a custom WordPress theme or a child topic.
However, the topic name will be displayed on it, so you can send it to Google to see if it is available for download.
Manually Detect WordPress Theme Used by a Website
Sometimes website owners change the name of the WordPress theme. These stop tools, such as WPLMS, define the WordPress theme they use.
However, the code can have many hidden keys that you can find and find the WordPress theme that they use.
Each WordPress theme requires a style.css file. This file contains a topic title that tells WordPress the name of the topic, the topic’s author, the URI, the version, etc. It also contains the CSS styles used by this topic.
To find this file, you must first visit the website. Right-click anywhere on the screen and select “View page source” in the menu.
This will open the source code of the page displayed in a new browser tab. Now you need to find a line in the source code that looks like this:
<link rel=’stylesheet’ id=’themename_style-CSS’ href=’http://example.com/wp-content/themes/theme-name/style.css?ver=1.1.47′ type=’text/CSS’ media=’all’ />
You can click on the URL on this line to open the style.css file.
At the top of the style.css file, you will see a topic header block that contains information about the theme used by the website. Typically, it looks something like this:
Theme Name: Theme Name
Theme URI: https://wplms.io/
Author: Theme Author Name
Author URI: https://example.com
Description: My Theme is a flexible WordPress theme designed for portfolio websites
You can find the theme URL or the subject’s URL address here, which will lead you to the topic used by the website.
Finding the Parent Theme
Many WordPress websites use children’s themes to customize their sites. In this case, the topic title will contain information about the parent topic that they are using.
Theme Name: My Child Theme
Description: Just a child theme
Author URL: Write here the author’s blog or website URL*/
In the previous example, this header block has an additional “Template” parameter in the topic header block. This template is the main theme used by this site.
You can also learn the parent theme by looking at the source code of the website. There you will find another style.css file downloaded from another topic. This other style.css file is a parent theme stylesheet and clicking on it will tell you which parent theme the site uses.
