What’s that theme?

Sep - 19 - 2012
Nicole C. Engard

Have you ever visited a website and wondered what theme was being used? I have! And now there is a way using Chrome to sniff out the WordPress theme being used by a site you’re looking at.

Chrome Theme Sniffer is a add-on for Chrome that will detect the theme or template being used on current site for several major open source CMS’s, including Drupal, Joomla and WordPress. All you have to do is click the Theme Sniffer button at the top of your browser to get the information instantly

See it in action here on my site – or any other of your favorite WordPress powered sites.

    Do people still ask how to hide their HTML so no one can view it? Remember back in the old days people would ask and we’d say “Oh sure, you want to use the INVISABLE tag that will make your code invisible.” and then we’d laugh and laugh… I guess what I’m saying is you could also just view source on the site :-)
