Looking for Generator Tag in Source Code
Simply visit the website in a browser window. Right click on any empty area on the screen and select View Page Source from browser menu.
This will load the site’s source code in the browser window. Press CTRL+F and then search for ‘generator’.
If it is a WordPress site, and if the site owner hasn’t disabled version information, then you will be able to see a tag like this:
<meta name="generator" content="WordPress 4.4.2" />
This meta tag is used by WordPress to show that a site is created using WordPress.
