Create websites with WordPress

Most people these days don’t just take a concept for a website and the overall design. Even professional designers and developers get their ideas from other websites they see every day. Most of the people who build WordPress websites these days are neither professional developers nor professional designers, they are just regular Joes like you and me.

The age of WordPress themes and plugins

Not only do most people copy each other’s ideas, most WordPress websites these days are not custom made either, they are WordPress themes that anyone can download for free or fairly cheaply.

Additional functionality

Most of the extra features you see on websites come either directly from the theme or as an add-on from a WordPress plugin.

WP Theme Detector is the new designer

I remember the days when you tried to build websites but had no idea how to go about it. Simple websites with text and images were an impossible task for most. Some of these people ended up signing up with an inferior website builder that gave them a horrible looking website. Thankfully, those days are over now that we have one WP Theme Detector to have.

What topic is this? Which plugin is this?

Nowadays we all look at a website that with WordPress was created, and assuming we like it, we ask ourselves “Which WordPress theme is this?” and fortunately, we can actually know that answer with the click of a button. Knowing which WP theme is used on a specific website and which WordPress plugin is used on that website is pretty much all you need to know to create such a website yourself.

Using a WordPress theme detector

With that in mind, most WordPress sites out there can be duplicated fairly easily. All you have to do is know what template is used on a website you like, what plugins are used for extra functionality and design and you can create the exact same website. If only there was a tool for that…

Wait…There is!!!

Just use our Skanne WP theme detector and find out all that and much more! Build yourself a killer site now!

Which WordPress theme is this? How we do it

We are constantly asked how we do what we do. There are literally thousands of posts online with titles like “Which WordPress theme is this?” or “Is this site WordPress” or “How to find out what WordPress theme this site used”. It’s a very vibrant topic that many people in the WordPress industry are interested in. Well, here it is:

There are a few ways we can identify WordPress themes and plugins. We have a head start as we have thousands of themes and plugins in our database that nobody can track down. We won’t disclose every single method we use in our algorithm, but we will explain the most widely used method.
There is a well-known structure within a WordPress website, so knowing what to look for in advance can save you a lot of time. Just look at the code of a specific WordPress website and look for something like this: /wp-content/themes/themename/style.css?ver=123
and go to that file. Inside the file there is a special WordPress structure that specifies the theme name, parent theme name, tags and more. Depending on the topic, there can be a lot more information and there can also be less. As we said before, since we have many topics in our database, if we discover a topic name that we know, we could give you much more information than the file CSS reveals. Because of this – even if you could spot that theme name without the help of a WordPress theme detector – you’ll still get a lot more information with the detector than you would on your own.

Who hosts this WordPress website?

Scanne WP can now not only detect the WordPress theme and plugins used, but also the hosting provider. So if you want to know who is hosting this WordPress website, now you can know. Just paste a url into the search bar and we’ll give you the hosting provider result, just like all the other results we usually get…
