Tools Of The Trade #18: What WordPress Theme Is That?

Nubby Twiglet | Tools Of The Trade: What WordPress Theme Is That?

As a designer, when I land on a cool new blog and fall in love with the design, I’m often curious: is it built from scratch or is it a theme?

When Star was in town for a Branch meeting a few months back, I mentioned how much I liked a particular site and wanted to design something similar for a project. I couldn’t tell if it was based off a theme or not. Right then, she pulled up What WordPress Theme Is That? and answered my question. Within seconds, I’d located the theme.

Even better, What WordPress Theme Is That? not only detects what theme is being used but also what particular plugins the site is using. What a timesaver!

    This is such a great idea – I also often wonder whether some sites are custom made or templates so this website is a great resource for curious ladies like me :) Being able to see what plug ins they use is also very interesting.

    What will they think of next?! Brilliant tool! And even though I don’t do development, I like that if I’m contemplating using a less common navigation style, for example, that’s similar to one on another site, I can check out what theme they’re using and be able to pitch my developer theme suggestions to go along with my designs! So clever.
