    We all wonder at times what theme,version or plugins a wp is using..
    Here are a few tips that might help you..some are collected from various threads posted here..rest are from my own experience..

    How to know if a site is Wordpress?

    Method 1:

    Open source of site and find the following in the <head> section
    HTML:
    <meta name="generator" content="WordPress xxxx" />
    IF you can see that..its a wordpress site.
    Method 2:
    Open url something like this:-
    IF it gives you a login screen ,its most likely wordpress :)

    How to know the version of Wordpress?
    Method 1:
    Open source of site and find the following in the <head> section
    HTML:
     <meta name="generator" content="WordPress xxxx" /> 
    xxxx is the version of wordpress

    Method 2:
    Open url something like this:-
    You should be able to see the wordpress version there.

    How to know which theme a wordpress is using?
    Method 1:
    Open url something like this:- You should be able to see the list of all themes uploaded to the blog.
    (Assuming directory listing is on)

    Method 2:
    Find the CSS file in the head section something like this
    Here the folde xyz represents the folder name for the theme.
    It might be in short name for the full theme name.Google about it..you should be able to find the original name.

    Method 3:
    Open the CSS file found above.IT should contain all details about the theme.

    Method 4:
    Although this is the first thing you all must already be doing..still its nice to list it here.
    Check site's footer. Many themes insert footer links. And who knows you might get lucky and someone might just have forgot to remove the credits ;)

    How to know what plugins a wordpress is using?
    Method 1:
    Open url something like this:- You should be able to see the list of all plugins uploaded to the blog.
    (Assuming directory listing is on)
    unfortunately asaik there isnt much info you can get about the plugins..

    One more thing i got today when i was following your steps to know the plugins used to build the site.
    Just press CTRL+F and then type plugins in the box and press ENTER.
    It will show you the plugins word and then what you have to do is check the next word to it and you will know that which all plugins are there in the site.

    Very nice. There have been a number of occasions when I've seen a theme I like but had no idea how to identify it. I suppose it's obvious to a lot of people, but I don't always remember to bring my brain with me.
