If you have WordPress pride (as I do!) you may be curious, every now and then, about whether or not a website is running on WordPress or not. I try to mention whenever I notice a big one, but you can locate them yourselves. I can’t say that these tests are foolproof (they can be dodged if the site owner knows what they are doing) but I would suggest giving these steps a shot if you suspect a site may be of WordPress descent.
- Try adding
to their domain
- Check their file structures. Oftentimes WordPress users will add a
to their URL before the post title. Often
on pages listing category posts also.
- The default permalink structure is a dead giveaway. Anytime you see ?page=123 used at the end of a page or post, you can rightfully suspect they are using WordPress.
. Any site using WordPress is accessed by the authors using that address.
Anyone out there spotted any really cool and/or popular WordPress sites out there, using the methods above? I’d love to hear about it.
