    Hey guys, so I have seen quite a few threads asking "What Wordpress theme is this site using?"
    So, for anyone who doesn't know, this is how you check quickly and easily.



    1. View page source. In Chrome you would simply right click on the page and select "View Source"
    2. Press CTRL+F and search for "style.css".
    3. At the top of the stylesheet, you should see something that says either "Theme Name" or "Template". There's your theme name right there.
    4. You might get lucky and also be shown a URL for the theme.
    ​
    Happy Wordpressing!

    You generally can get away by looking in which sub directory (/themes/[nameoftemplate]) the resource files are, if all the rest fails.. ;)

    OP shared one of the easiest way to know theme name. I hope people will follow this method instead of posting new 'what is this theme' thread every other day.

    -------------------------------

    Most site owners restrict access of general public to that directory you mentioned.

    This isn't a foolproof method, but the majority of Wordpress sites are just as they were installed, default theme name and everything. You can always dig deeper into the source code if you don't find your answer immediately.

    That isn't Wordpress.
    It's a custom site made with the Bootstrap framework.

    Thank you for this. My question is how to actually copy the complete WP theme.
    I have learnt to convert WP theme into blogger's though.

    There is no good way to copy a wp theme from someone's site. Easier method is to find out what it's called and then download or purchase the theme.
