Location of a wordpress theme

    Hi. Until now, from my knowledge of WordPress, if whenever I wanted to look for what theme a WordPress site is using, I just used to look at the source and see for the name through the wp-content/themes over there. But this one website and made me lose my mind. If you check this website,
    they are using WordPress for their website but I am unable to find what is the theme folder. This surprises me a lot since they seem to be using a very nice layout of hiding themes in your wordpress installations so that other people won’t be able to see what theme you are using!
    Could someone throw more light on this on how to hide/ change your theme location from the default ones’ used in WordPress?
    Lets see how many of you are able to find what’s the name of the theme this site is using!



    Sorry, you are in the wrong forum and need to head over to http://wordpress.ORG/support/ as that is where self-hosted wordpress blogs using the software from wordpress.ORG are supported there.

    These forums are for those hosted here on the wordpress.COM free hosting service and things here work differently and our answers typically will not work for you.

    That said, it is not at all hard to hide a theme. My suspicion though is that they built their own and then hid things.



    Thanks a lot for the reply. I will make sure that I am at the right place the next time!




    It’s a custom design, not a ready-made theme.

    If you change the name of a theme folder and remove the header information from its style.css you’ll make it difficult to identify the theme.

    ismyblogworking.com will identify the theme of a WordPress blog if that information is available.
