Learn technical info from a site/page

Some things you could say about the technics of a page:

  • Choose View > Source in your browser (or press CTRL+U) and try to figure out what tool is used to create the page (eg. WordPress, Dreamweaver, Muse)
    eg. this will tell it is made with WordPress: <meta name="generator" content="WordPress 4.3.1" />
  • If WordPress is used, what’s the name of the theme? (scan the source for .../wp-content/themes/xxx/... where xxx will be the name of the theme)
  • Does the Portfolio page use a gallery? If yes, what gallery?
  • Does the page use Javascript/JQuery/plugins? If yes, can you figure out were it was used for?
