- How to Detect What Theme a WordPress Website is Using and Why You Might Want to
Hey there everyone, Jimbo here again.
Have you ever wondered what theme a website is running?
Have you ever wondered what plugins they're using?
We can answer both of these questions quite easily (in most cases) with a website called wpthemedetector.com
Why might you want to "spy" on someone else's website themes and plugins, I hear you asking.
Maybe you like the theme so much but it doesn't say what theme is being used when you scroll to the bottom and look in the footer.
Many themes, especially the premium themes, give you an option to remove the name of the theme from the bottom. On most, if not all free themes you will see the name of the theme in the footer.
In addition to detecting WordPress themes, this website also tells you what plugins someone is using.
So, if you're wondering how Pat Flynn (of smart passive income) collects subscribers, maybe the plugin will be listed there. IF you want to know how Neil Patel does his on-page seo, it might tell you that, too.
In many instances with authority sites they have enough money coming in to get a theme that is customized specially for them. In this case it won't tell you. Never mind, you can still check out the plugins they use.

Jimbo, over and out!
