How to find out which CMS, template and plugins use a website?


Many of us have reached a website and we have loved its design, structure, loading speed or other aspects of the site.

At that moment, we would love to know what the web is made to get ideas or build a similar one for ourselves.

If not, I am sure that you have seen some element in particular and it has stung you the curiosity to know with what plugin they have done it.

Well, for all this there is a solution, since it is very simple to know what CMS a website is made of, what template it uses or the plugins it has installed.

In this list, you will find the tools to detect them automatically and a video tutorial to do it manually.

1. BuiltWith

This is my favorite tool to detect which CMS uses a web page, template, and plugins, as well as other data such as the measurement and analysis tools you are using, languages ​​or frameworks (among many other things).

You can find out in a single second how the website of the competition is built, so it is very useful.

 Web: Builtwith
 CMS: All

2. What CMS?

What CMS we extract the content manager or CMS uses the web, as well as the main construction tool, in the case of the image is WordPress and Elementor.

It does not give as much information as the previous tool, but if we want to get to the point and simply return the CMS ( WordPress or Wix, Prestashop, Magento, Joomla, Drupal or other), the tool will be very clear.

 CMS: All

3. WP Theme Detector

WP Theme detector gives us the information on any web page made in WordPress in a very visual way.

We just have to write our domain or that of the competition and it will show us the template or theme you are using as well as the plugins it detects (you have to scroll on the page to see this).

Remember that this is only for WordPress, so if we have a Prestashop or other CMS, we will have to go to another tool.

4. Wappalyzer

Wappalyzer gives you the information on the website in a very detailed way, with the CMS, plugins, and tools it uses.

The advantage of this tool is that it has an extension for Google Chrome, so it is not necessary to leave each website to see how it is made, but by clicking on Wappalyzer Chrome we can see all the information.

The disadvantage is that it does not give you information about the template used by the web, so we will have to opt for other tools for this.

 Web: Wappalyzer
 CMS: All

5. What WordPress theme is that

It is very similar to the WP theme detector since it helps us to know what WordPress theme or template a page has.

It also gives us information about some of the plugins that the site has installed.
