How to Find Which WordPress Theme a Site is Using?

Find a Site’s WordPress Theme Manually

If a theme detector tool is unable to scan a site, you can find its active theme information in its page source code. Just follow the steps below.

  1. Go to your favorite WordPress site. For the sake of this demo, let’s check out one of my favorite food blogs Just Homemade.
  2. Right-click on the screen and select View Page Source from the drop-down menu. A new tab will open.User clicking View Page Source on Just Homemade's home page
  3. Press Ctrl+F and type “style.css” into the search box.
  4. Scroll down until you find a line of text that looks something like this: <link rel='stylesheet' id='themename_style-css' href='' type='text/css' media='all' />

    As shown in the screenshot below, the exact line in Just Homemade’s source code is: <link rel='stylesheet' id='brunch-pro-theme-css' href='' type='text/css' media='all' />

  5. Click on the URL in this line to open the style.css file.
  6. At the top of the file, you should see the theme header block, which will display the theme name. It will look something like this:Just Homemade's theme header block containing information about Brunch Pro Theme
  7. You can then search the theme name in a new browser window and see where it’s available for purchase. For example, the Brunch Pro theme used to build Just Homemade is available at Feast Design Co.
