  1. Hi,
    I am new to wordpress.
    Is there any way I can find out if a certain site is using a wordpress theme or not?
    Thanks

    The blog I need help with is reficalifornia.wordpress.com.

  2. If it's hosted on WordPress.com, it is. If it's using WordPress.org software, it is.

  3. So how can I check to see if a site is hosted by WordPress or in on wordpress.org ?
    The site itself does not mention it on its content.
    Thanks

  4. If you are signed in to WordPress.com and you're looking at a WordPress.com site, you will see the grey Admin bar at the top of the page.

  5. I was under the impression that the admin bar can be disabled. So if the site I am looking at has the admin bar disabled, will it still show up?

  6. If you had posted the URL up front you would have received an instant definitive answer. As we don't have the URL we cannot provide one. However, you can do whois search using the URL and find out who hosts the blog on your own.

    I was under the impression that the admin bar can be disabled. So if the site I am looking at has the admin bar disabled, will it still show up?

    Removing the Admin bar and/or footer credit links from any free hosted WordPress.com blog is a ToS violation that gets a blog suspended. If the blog has a "powered by WordPress" link in the footer then click the link and see that it's a WordPress.ORG install.

    Here is the comparison link http://support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/

  8. Hi timethief,
    Thank you so much for your reply,
    I never said this was a free hosted wordpress theme site... This is just a random site that I saw on the internet that I like and would like to choose a theme from wordpress as close to it as possible and start building my first site.
    Here is the link to this site that I like: http://pdxhomeloan.com/

    When I checked the site on the link you provided, here is the message I got:
    WordPress theme is called pdxhl, but has no details. It is probably a customized theme

  9. i forgot to say, I went to find a theme and search http://theme.wordpress.com/ and type in pdxhl into the search nothing pulls up.

  10. Thanks for posting the URL. That's not a free hosted WordPress.COM site. We provide support only for free hosted WordPress.com blogs here. We do not provide support for WordPress.ORG software installs. If you don't have a username account at WordPress.ORG click http://wordpress.org/support/ and register one on the top right hand corner of the page that opens, so you can post to the support forums there and receive advice from WordPress.ORG bloggers.
