Gochyu Theme Detector

What Theme is That?

Gochyu is currently the world's best website theme detector. Gochyu is the only theme detector that can currently detect the theme used on all of the following "under one roof":

  • WordPress.org
  • WordPress.com
  • Shopify
  • Drupal
  • Joomla!
  • Prestashop
  • Squarespace

Not only can we detect themes on the above website builders, we can also detect plugins / apps used on some other website builders such as Wix. Along with some aditional information.

If the website you entered isn't in the above list of the website builders we can detect, we can still detect hundreds of different CMS'/ Website builders / frameworks to let you know how the site was built.

Theme Detectors

WordPress

WordPress Theme Detector

WordPress is our specialty. We can detect almost any WordPress theme used, any Plugin that uses an individual stylesheet or Javascript file, parent themes & Child themes, tags, theme prices and download links and much more.

WordPress.com

WordPress.com Theme Detector

We are the only WordPress.com theme detector. Most WordPress theme detectors make the huge mistake of detecting .com websites as regular WordPress.org sites. We are the only detector that can tell the difference and give you a whole lot of information while doing it.

Gochyu Functionality Breakdown

In the broad aspect, if we break down what Gochyu can do into stages, there are 3 stages of information that we can give you:

We start out by Detecting what CMS is being used on any site you "through our way". We can detect over 400 different CMS platforms. Once we know what CMS is being used on that site, we can continue to the second part and that's the theme detection. Assuming the CMS we detected in the previous stage is in our theme detector list (scroll up a bit), we will detect all types of information about the theme.

Assuming possible, we move on to the 3rd stage and that's plugin detection. We detect all plugins that are being used on that site.

Gochyu Theme Detector Information

You know that feeling you get when you stumble upon a website that you just need to know what theme (and platform) it's using? That's the exact reason we built Gochyu. Up till now you would find WordPress specific theme detectors, Shopify theme detectors, etc. or just an overall CMS detector which does detect the CMS but leaves out all the interesting information.

Gochyu - What Theme is That?

Besides knowing what platform (or CMS) a site is using, the theme & plugin information is the most interesting part. Of course we want to know what platform is being used, but most importantly we want to know what theme is being used. We want to know what plugin is being used for that interesting feature. So now with Gochyu, not only do we detect the CMS, we find the exact theme based on the platform, the exact plugin names for the platform, the tags associated with each, the price if we know it, a link to download the theme/plugin if we have it and even more than that...

Gochyu Theme Detector - Who Uses It?

Gochyu is designed for anyone that works with websites. For example:

  • Web designers
  • SEOs
  • PPCs
  • Web developers
  • Website builders (non developers but still build websites)
  • Email marketers
  • Business owners looking for a new website
  • UI/UX
  • Etc.

All of these professions have the need on a weekly basis, at least! Gochyu answers that need and saves you time and money by detecting what your competitors do, and enables you to do the same thing on your own website.

What CMS is That?

As mentioned above, there are quite a lot of CMS' (Content management systems) out there, and we can detect sites built on over 400 different types of systems. Since any given site could be built with any kind of CMS out there, it's crucial to be able to detect which CMS is being used on that site you really want to inspect.

CMS Checker

Although Gochyu is highly focused on theme and plugin detection, we also check the CMS just so you don't get a "not found" result when in need for information about a specific website. We check several types of patterns in order to get you the result you are looking for.

Website Builder Detector

A CMS is a broad word the includes very different things in it. One of those things (that shouldn't actually be in the same category as a CMS) is website builders. There is a long list of website builders available for you to be able to "build a website in 60 minutes or under". These website builders are not exactly content management systems, but DIY website "development" for non developers. One of the most common website builders is "Wix" which you probably heard of. In the list of platforms that we can detect, there are also many website builders.

Framework Detector

We've discussed CMS' and website builders, now what is a framework? Frameworks are very different that a CMS or a website builder. Frameworks are used by developers only. A framework gives you a starting point to do tasks that are needed on every single website. Some of these could be:

  • Database management (CRUD)
  • OOP - all the boring stuff is already done for you, just start developing
  • HTML structure ready
  • etc...

In that case, how do you detect a Framework?

This is a great question, since most CMS' & website builders are detected due to HTML structure or scripts being called from the website builder domain. So how do we do it? There are still all kinds of things we can detect with the help of server information, header information etc.

Website Framework Detector Conclusion

So assuming you try to detect a website's CMS that was actually built from scratch using a framework, we won't be able to detect a CMS (because none is actually being used) but we will absolutely be able to detect a framework if one is being used.

So if you are asking yourself...

What CMS is this Site Using / What is MY CMS?

(what is MY CMS? - many people have a site and don't actually know how it was built and what CMS was used to build it, if any)

If you just asked yourself one of those questions, then all you have to do is put the URL of that site in the form above and wait for the results to appear.

What Theme is That?

As we explained above, now we get to the second part of the detection and that's the theme detector. "What theme is that", is basically what many designers, SEOs, PPCs etc. ask them selves when they get to a site that they know what CMS was used to build it. Hence the fact that they go to the theme and not to the CMS ("what is that theme" rather than "what is the CMS").

Theme Detector / Template Detector

First of all, what is a theme or a template? (Note that different platforms use a different word. Most platforms use the name "theme" while some actually use "template") .

To simplify things, we'll use the word "theme" but everything written applies for templates as well.

What is a Theme?

Themes are a pre-built site with most of the modules already ready for you to populate them with your content. The theme is in charge of the design, the structure, the order of elements, and most of what you see on a site. On most platforms (WordPress for example) you can switch between themes with a click of a button and the look and feel of the site could potentially be totally different after changing the theme.

Website Theme Detector

It's important to understand one important detail when it comes to theme detectors. Most theme detectors that you will find online, will detect themes of one specific platform, and if they do detect themes of various platforms, usually the information you receive is very basic. i.e - only the theme name and that's it. 

There is no other website theme detector like Gochyu. We scrapped the net for lots of themes for various CMS' so that once we find the theme name, we may possibly give you more information about it. 

This is why we point this issue out. Each platform detection is like an entire website, which is why the vast majority of theme detectors focus on one CMS at a time.

What Theme is This?

So, once we detect the platform being used, we can now go on and use our algorithm to figure out what theme is being used on that site. Note that asking the question What theme is this site using should technically mean that you actually know what CMS is being used to run the site. Now all you need to know is what theme is being used.

What is a Website Detector?

Well we know what a CMS detector is, we know what a theme detector is, so what is a website detector then? Well, simply put - there is absolutely no difference. Talking about platforms and themes and plugin detection is a way of explaining what exactly is being detected. A website detector just puts all we are talking about here into 2 words. Nothing more, nothing less.

What Theme is This Website Using?

So all you actually need to do is put the URL of the site in question in the form above and search. We use various means of detection, dependent on the detected CMS to figure out the theme name, the theme URI, tags associated with the theme and much more.

What Theme is it?

Once we know all the information above, we cross check it with our database. We have information about hundreds of thousands of themes (and templates, depending on the platform) with their corresponding information. If the theme detected is from a real store / vendor on the market, we can tell you its price, who developed it and even give you a direct link to download it. All of that within one online tool.

One of the most common questions we get is...

How to Find Out What Theme a Website is Using

Well here it is, assuming you know what platform is being used, just use the Gochyu theme detector and get your answer within seconds.

So, What's the Theme? - Ask Gochyu!

Plugin Detector

We got to the last part in our detection. The plugin detector. But before that...

What is a Plugin?

A plugin is a combination of 2 words: "plug" + "in". It's an exact explanation, since it's very similar to plugging in a plug. Plugins can be used by any given website assuming they are intended for that platform. So WordPress plugins will not work on Shopify, but they will work on all WordPress websites. 

If themes give the entire structure and look of a site, plugins sort of give the rest. Why sort of? Because plugins can do whatever you want. A plugin gives you something that the theme is lacking. It could be added functionality like a caching plugin or a contact form plugin, but it could also be for structure and design that the theme is lacking. 

For example, a mega menu plugin, an additional CSS design plugin, social share plugin, we could go on and on but that's the basic explanation. Whatever your site is lacking, a plugin can add "from the side". Just plug-it-in and it will do what it's supposed to.

Website Plugin Detector

Now that we got that out of the way, once we detect a CMS and theme, we go on to detect plugins. When we get a list of the plugin names, just like with the theme, we cross reference each plugin with our database and search through hundreds of thousands of plugins and assuming we have it in our database, we will let you know if it's a free or premium plugin, where you can purchase it and who developed it. Even a short explanation about it.

 

That's pretty much it. If you made it to here, cudos. You know all there is to know about Gochyu.
