    Theme is lifestile 2.0

    The rest of the things you can find answers to on youtube really its hard for someone to sit down and teach you these things, try to figure this out yourself
    before asking for help. You just might surprise yourself.

    A guy is selling those websites on flippa, you can ask him what theme it is, if it's free or not and which plugin are used.
    Buyers can ask what they want to know : hxxps://flippaDOTcom/2629675-40-autoblogs-network-package-100-automated-site-ready-to-make-money

    yes i know that,but it will take a hell lot of time to find all these things.

    yes i asked him at Flippa but it is illegal at flippa to give contact info before you sell the site, I think.

    Actually it isn't as hard or time consuming as you might think.

    You can find out what themes are used by viewing the source and look in the <head> to find the lines showing the themes folders.
    bestcoffeehub.com/wp-content/themes/lifestyle_20/
    foodrecipestips.com/wp-content/themes/church_40/
    topstopsmokingsite.com/wp-content/themes/lifestyle_20/
    androidsmartphonetips.com/wp-content/themes/church_40/​
    So for those websites two are using the lifestyle_20 and other two are using church_40 themes. Do a google search for those theme names and you should be able to find where to get them and if they are free or not.

    Look in the <head> again for more folders for any plugins. For instance the bestcoffeehub site has the .../wp-content/plugins/featured-content-gallery/ which has jd.gallery, and mootools.v1.11. Do a google search for featured-content-gallery, and if necessary search for jd.gallery and mootools.

    While looking through the <head> for the bestcoffeehub site you'll also see this line:
    To define the 468x60 ad, go to your WP dashboard and go to Appearance -> Revolution Lifestyle Options and enter the ad code.​
    This gives you a little more information to search for. Apparently the full name of the theme may be "Revolution Lifestyle".

    So that's the steps you need to take when you see a theme you like on another site that you may want to use on your own sites.
    1. view the source and find the theme name and any plugin names you can find.
    2. search google to find where you can get the themes and plugins yourself.

    If you do a search for "revolution themes" you'll find this site:
    http://www.wordpress-themes.co/revolution-wordpress-themes
    Which has the Lifestyle theme, the Church theme, and many other similar styles. The particular themes you're looking for are free, but there are also premium themes available on that site.

    I did all that in about 15 minutes which included composing and editing this post.

    Once you have the theme and plugins it's a fairly simple process to set up wordpress for your own site. Including the time to find and watch a youtube video showing you step by step how to do it you should be able to set up wordpress yourself in less than an hour. (That's assuming of course that you already have a hosting account somewhere. If not then you might need a couple more hours to get that all set up if it's your first time.)

    Once you've done it once then the next time you set up a site it will be even faster.

    GreyWolf.... Ok this guy definitely owes you a beer/crack (why crack bhw?)... anyway. I've been working with WP for years and was surprised that I didn't know that little nugget about finding the theme in the source. Can't say that I've actively wondered what theme any particular site was using so that may be the reason but I have wondered about an easy solution to figuring out what plugins were used.

    I typically figure out the plugin thing by google'n the features and see what plugin does what I'm looking to reproduce on my sites via trial and error. You just made life just that much easier. Thanks man.

    OP.... At first I was gonna suggest just paying someone to create them for you but I respect your preference to pay to be taught to fish rather than pay to have the fish caught for you. I hope you do well.

    @CASimmons - Yeah you can find out a lot about what scripts are running a site just by viewing the page source. Some scripts especially for forums or ecommerce sites can be more complicated to sort out, but whatever it is if you see something on a page you likem then viewing the page source is your best first step to finding what it is.

    Even for a custom site, you can still look in the page source to find where the css files, js files and any other scripts being called are located. A lot of times that can be enough to recreate whatever function you're wanting to replicate for your own site.

    + rep Greywolf for that.
    I had only used page source to check meta keywords and description. Did not know that I could use it to find plugins and themes.
    Awesome share my friend.

    You can try to locate the wp_plugin folder...many servers are configured to keep directory listing on by default..so you might get the list of plugins you are looking for pretty easily there :)

    similar sites are selling on flippa for $60-$150, buy one and you will see all the configurations, plugins etc. I think that's the easiest way

    Thanks y'all. I've been customizing WP blogs for years adding and editing code using DW and Firebug but I just never thought to look into another sites source to get the plugin and themes. It's practically been staring me in the face the entire time and it's advantages went unnoticed. smh
