    Apols if this has been mentioned already on here but I recently discovered What WP Theme is That which is a really useful tool if you see a site you like (which you suspect may be built with Wordpress) as it can help you identify the theme (along with a few of the plugins used) if you enter the site url

    Use it quite a lot when I come across sites I like......was quite interested to see that Piers Linney (the new techie Dragon on Dragon's Den) is using an off the shelf WP theme available on Theme Forest (in fact one that's quite nice but hasn't had many sales)....might email the author's to let them know

    Cool if not a little addictive, rep added.

    Nice tool. Saves time searching page source code. Does it also work with themes that webmasters have changed the theme folder name?

    Sorry Stevie, I'm not too sure on this point. It does seem to still work on frameworks (eg Ithemes Builder) where the child theme has been considerably modified....As you say it saves a heap of time, it's also surprising just how many decent looking websites use wordpress these days

    18.9 per cent of the web runs on it apparently, incredible to think isn't it.

    Better(?), quicker and easier, free tool/browser plugin for firefox and chrome:

    Shows you a list of every framework and what version of framework(s) a website is using - all done on page load so you don't need to do anything. :cool:
