Is it WordPress? – Free Online Check Tool

If you’ve ever asked yourself “is that website using WordPress?” you had to take some time to explore the matter further.

How people check if it is a WordPress website

So many of you did one of the following things:

  • Type www.example.com/wp-admin/ and see what happens. You can’t be sure the results will be accurate, because webmasters often change the installation folder of WordPress and the login URL
  • Open an image in new tab and check the URL to see if it refers to WordPress (for instance www.example.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2016/08/is-my-site-running-on-wordpress.jpg)
  • The easiest way is to search in the footer for “Powered by WordPress” signature
  • View the web page source (CTRL + U) and try to find any telltale signs of WordPress. Relevant words are also wp-content and wp-admin
