    ok here is the easy way to find a theme a wp blog is using

    1. goto the blog
    2. CTRL U ( see the source shortcut may vary in your browser)
    3. find the CSS page in the header ...
    4. read the comments at the top of the css for theme name and http
    5. CTRL C T V - get a new tab and go visit the theme .. d/l or buy it and be happy


    enjoy have a nice day
     
    • Thanks Thanks x 3

    I know about this, and I did that with my previous thread.. It's just what's in that css is different with what I see.

    have a nice day!

    You can also look for the name of the theme within the source itself.

    and the flip side of this coin ....

    1. change the directory name for the theme
    2. change the css info to something else maye a gaudy theme
    3. smile that people wanting to dupe your theme will have a harder time

    This is hardly an end all be all thread. This method only works assuming its a wordpress site, and the own hasn't changed the name of the theme. Lots of people, including me, change the theme name. Should help some people out though, thanks for posting the thread!
