Have you ever wanted to find out which WordPress theme a website is using? Often we get emails from readers asking us for help in finding the exact theme that a certain website is using. In this article, we will show you how to easily find out which WordPress theme a specific website is using.

Which Theme is a Website is Using?

When you are starting a new website, choosing the right theme is a very important decision.

Often you have ideas and inspirations that you have seen on other websites. In some cases, you may want your website to have almost the same layout and features as another website that you saw on the internet.

This could be possible specially if that website is using one of the thousands of free and paid WordPress themes available in the market.

And thankfully, it’s quite easy to find out which WordPress theme a website is using.

Method 1. Find WordPress Theme used by a Website with IsItWP

One of the easiest way to detect WordPress theme used by a website is with IsItWP. It is an online tool that allows you to look up plugins and themes used by a WordPress website.

First, you need to visit IsItWP website and enter the URL of a website you want to check.

Looking up a website on IsItWP

IsItWP will first check if the website is using WordPress. If it is a WordPress powered website, then IsItWP will check which WordPress theme the website is using. It will also try to detect WordPress plugins used by the website.

After that, it will show you the results with more details about the plugins and theme used by the website.

WordPress theme and plugin details

IsItWP may not be able to offer you details about a custom WordPress theme or a child theme.

However it will display the name of the theme, so you can google it to see if it’s available for download.

Method 2. Manually Detect WordPress Theme Used by a Website

Sometimes website owners change the WordPress theme name. This stop tools like IsItWP to detect which WordPress theme they are using.

However, there still might be plenty of clues hidden in the code that you can detect and find the WordPress theme they are using.

Let’s get started.

Each WordPress theme is required to have a style.css file. This file contains theme header which tells WordPress the name of the theme, theme author, URI, version, etc. It also contains CSS styles used by the theme.

To locate this file, first you need to visit the website. Right click anywhere on the screen and select ‘View Page Source’ from the menu.

View page source of a WordPress website

This will open the source code of the page you are viewing in a new browser tab. Now you need to find a line in the source code that looks something like this:

<link rel='stylesheet' id='themename_style-css'  href='http://example.com/wp-content/themes/theme-name/style.css?ver=1.1.47' type='text/css' media='all' />

You can click on the URL in this line to open the style.css file.

On top of the style.css file, you will see the theme header block which contains information about the theme used by the website. Typically, it would look something like this:

Theme Name:     Theme Name 
Theme URI:      https://example.com
Author:         ThemeAuthorName
Author URI:     https://example.com
Description:    My Theme is a flexible WordPress theme designed for portfolio websites
Version:        1.1.47
License:        GNU General Public License v2 or later
License URI:    http://www.gnu.org/licenses/gpl-2.0.html
Text Domain:    hestia
Tags: blog, custom-logo, portfolio, e-commerce, rtl-language-support, post-formats, grid-layout, one-column, two-columns, custom-background, custom-colors, custom-header, custom-menu, featured-image-header, featured-images, flexible-header, full-width-template, sticky-post, theme-options, threaded-comments, translation-ready

You may be able to find the Theme’s URL or Theme Author’s URL here which will lead you to the theme used by the website.

Finding The Parent Theme

Many WordPress websites use child themes to customize their websites. In that case, their theme header will contain information about the parent theme they are using.

*
Theme Name:   My Child Theme
Description:  Just a child theme
Author:       Peter Smith
Author URL:   Write here the author's blog or website url
Template:     hestia
Version:      1.0
License:      GNU General Public License v2 or later
License URI:  http://www.gnu.org/licenses/gpl-2.0.html
Text Domain:  my-child-theme
*/

In the above example, this header block has an extra ‘Template’ parameter in the theme header block. This template is the parent theme used by this website.

You can also find out the parent theme by looking at the website’s source code. There you will find another style.css file loaded from another theme. This other style.css file is the parent theme’s stylesheet and clicking on it will tell you which parent theme a site is using.

That’s all for now, we hope this article helped you learn how to find which WordPress theme a site is using. You may also want to see our ultimate list of the most wanted WordPress tips, tricks, and hacks.

Spend less time CD’ing around directories with the PowerShell Z shortcut

Everyone has a trick for moving around their computer faster. It might be a favorite shell, a series of aliases or shortcuts. I like using popd and pushd to quickly go deep into a directory structure and return exactly where I was.

Another fantastic utility is simply called “Z.” There is a shell script for Z at https://github.com/rupa/z that’s for *nix, and there’s a PowerShell Z command (a fork of the original) at https://github.com/vincpa/z.

As you move around your machine at the command line, Z is adding the directories you usually visit to a file, then using that file to give you instant autocomplete so you can get back there FAST.

If you have Windows 10, you can install Z in seconds like this:

C:\> Install-Module z -AllowClobber

Then just add “Import-Module z” to the end of your Profile, usually at $env:USERPROFILE\Documents\WindowsPowerShell\Microsoft.PowerShell_profile.ps1

Even better, Z works with pushd, cd, or just “z c:\users\scott” if you like. All those directory changes and moves will be recorded it the Z datafile that is stored in ~\.cdHistory.

What do you think? Do you have a favorite way to move around your file system at the command line?

Recently, a user asked us how to create a video gallery in WordPress. WordPress makes it easy to embed videos in your blog posts, but it does not allow you to create video galleries out of the box. In this article, we will show you how to easily create a video gallery in WordPress.

Adding a video gallery in WordPress

When and Why Create a Video Gallery in WordPress

WordPress makes it easy to embed videos in your blog posts by simply entering the video URLs. It can also display hosted videos on your own website.

However, you should never upload videos to WordPress. Videos are large files and serving them directly may cause issues with your WordPress hosting service.

You can easily add a single video into your posts but what if you wanted to show multiple videos on a page?

One way to do this is by adding one video after another. While it works, it creates an unpleasant user experience because it requires a lot of scrolling.

Wouldn’t it be nicer if you could create a video gallery with thumbnails just like a photo gallery? This would allow you to show more videos in less space by utilizing a beautiful mobile friendly grid.

Let’s take a look at how to easily create a video gallery in WordPress.

Method 1: Create a Video Gallery in WordPress with Envira Gallery

For this method, we’ll be using the Envira Gallery plugin. It is the best WordPress gallery plugin in the market. It also has a videos addon which allows you to create beautiful mobile-responsive video galleries in WordPress.

Envira Gallery is a paid plugin, and you’ll need at least their pro plan to access the videos addon.

WPBeginner users can use this Envira Gallery coupon to get 25% off.

First thing you need to do is install and activate the Envira Gallery plugin. For more details, see our step by step guide on how to install a WordPress plugin.

Upon activation, you need to visit Envira Gallery » Settings page to add your license key. You can find this information from your account on Envira Gallery website.

Enter your Envira Gallery license key

Next, you need to head over to the Envira Gallery » Addons page. You’ll see all the addons available for you to install. Look for the Videos addon and install it.

Next, you need to head over to Envira Gallery » Addons page. You’ll see all the addons available for you to install. Look for the Videos addon and install it.

Envira Gallery will now fetch and install the videos addon. After that, you need to click ‘Activate’ to start using it on your website.

Activate videos addon

Now you are ready to create your first video gallery.

Head over to the Envira Gallery » Add New page to create your gallery. First, you need to provide a title for your gallery.

Add new video gallery

Envira Gallery can create a video gallery of self-hosted videos as well as videos hosted on YouTube, Vimeo, and Wistia. We recommend using third-party video hosting services for better user experience.

First, you’ll need to upload your videos to YouTube or Vimeo. After that, click on ‘Select videos from other sources’ button to continue.

This will bring up the Insert Media popup where you need to click on the ‘Insert videos’ link in the left column.

Insert videos

You need to click on the ‘Add Video’ button to enter the title and the video URL.

To add more videos, click on the ‘Add Video’ button again. Feel free to add as many videos as you need.

Once you have added all the videos you want to show in the gallery, click on the ‘Insert into Gallery’ button to continue.

Envira will now fetch the thumbnails for your videos and show them under the images section.

You can edit videos at any time by clicking on the ‘pencil’ icon or remove any video. You can also add more videos if needed.

Your video gallery is almost ready. Let’s configure the video gallery settings.

Start by clicking on the ‘Config’ tab in the left column, and under ‘Number of Gallery Columns’ options select two or three column layout.

This ensures that your video thumbnails appear nicely with adequate space between each video.

Video gallery columns

Now let’s add the play button to your video thumbnails.

Switch to the ‘Videos’ tab and check the box next to ‘Display play icon over gallery image’ option.

Add play button to video thumbnails in the gallery

Your video gallery is now ready. Go ahead and click on the publish button to make your video gallery available to WordPress.

Display Video Gallery on Your Website

Envira Gallery makes it easy to display your video gallery in any WordPress post or page. You can also display the gallery in a sidebar.

Let’s create a new page in WordPress and give it an appropriate title, for example: ‘Videos’.

Next, click on the ‘Add Gallery’ button on top of the post editor.

Add gallery button

This will bring up a popup where you’ll see your video gallery. Click to select it and then click on the Insert button.

Insert gallery

Envira Gallery shortcode will now appear in your post editor.

You can now update or publish your page and visit the page to see your video gallery in action.

Envira video gallery

The best part is that clicking on a video item will open it in a lightbox popup with theater mode. This offers a far better viewing experience for your users.

They will be able to view the video without leaving your website, and they can also browse other videos in the gallery by clicking on the thumbnails below the player.

Video gallery popup

Method 2: Create a Video Gallery in WordPress with YouTube Channel Gallery

This method requires a YouTube API key to work, which makes the process a bit lengthier. Don’t worry we’ll walk you through it.

First thing you need to do is install and activate the YouTube Channel Gallery plugin. For more details, see our step by step guide on how to install a WordPress plugin.

Next, you need to head over to Google Developer Console website to generate a YouTube API key.

Click on the ‘Select a project’ button at the top left corner of the screen and then click on the add button.

New Google developer project

On the next screen, you need to provide a name for your project and agree to the terms of service. After that click on the create button to continue.

New project details

Next, you need to click on the API Library and then select YouTube Data API link.

Select YouTube Data API

This will bring you to the API details page where you need to click on the Enable link to turn on this API for your project.

Enable API key

Developer console will now enable the API for your project. You still need to create credentials to get to the API key.

Click on the ‘Create credentials’ button to continue.

Create credentials

Now you need to enter how you will be using the API key. For ‘Where will you be calling the API from?’ option select ‘Web browser (JavaScript)’ and select ‘Public Data’ under ‘What data will you be accessing?’ option.

Credential settings

Click on ‘What credentials do I need’ button to continue.

Developer console will now show your API key. You need to copy and paste this API key in a plain text file. You’ll need it later to create video galleries.

There is one last step remaining which is to restrict your API key to be used only on your website. To do that, click on the Restrict key link shown on your API key screen.

Copy API Key

On the restrictions page, select HTTP Referrers option and then enter your domain name below in the following format:

*.yourdomain.com

Restrict API key

Don’t forget to click on the save button to store your changes,

Now that you have got your YouTube data API key, it’s time to create your video gallery.

YouTube Channel Gallery plugin comes with a powerful shortcode that you can add to your posts and pages to display your video gallery.

Simply create a new page or edit an existing one, and add the following shortcode inside the post editor.

[Youtube_Channel_Gallery user="wpbeginner" maxitems="8" thumb_columns_phones="2" thumb_columns_tablets="4" key="your-youtube-api-key-goes-here"]

Don’t forget to replace the user with your YouTube username, and the key with the YouTube API key you created earlier.

You can now save your post/page and visit your website to see your video gallery in action.

YouTube video gallery plugin

The plugin does not have lightbox popup, and your videos will be played on the page. Clicking on a video thumbnail in the gallery will play the video in the top player.

For more details, please see our tutorial on how to show latest videos from your YouTube channel in WordPress.

That’s all for now.

What would a cross-platform .NET UI Framework look like? Exploring Avalonia

Many years ago before WPF was the “Windows Presentation Foundation” and introduced XAML as a UI markup language for .NET, Windows, and more, there was a project codenamed “Avalon.” Avalon was WPF’s codename. XAML is everywhere now, and the XAML Standard is a vocabulary specification.

Avalonia is an open source project that clearly takes its inspiration from Avalon and has an unapologetic love for XAML. Steven Kirk (GitHubber by day) and a team of nearly 50 contributors are asking what would a cross-platform .NET UI Framework look like. WPF without the W, if you will.

Avalonia (formerly known as Perspex) is a multi-platform .NET UI framework. It can run on Windows, Linux, Mac OS X, iOS and Android.

YOU can try out the latest build of Avalonia available for download here:https://ci.appveyor.com/project/AvaloniaUI/Avalonia/branch/master/artifacts and probably get the “ControlCatalog.Desktop” zip file at the bottom. It includes a complete running sample app that will let you explore the available controls.

Avalonia is cross-platform XAML ZOMG

It’s important note that while Avalonia may smell like WPF, it’s not WPF. It’s not cross-platform WPF – it’s Avalonia. Make sense? Avalonia does styles differently than WPF, and actually has a lot of subtle but significant syntax improvements.

Avalonia is a multi-platform windowing toolkit – somewhat like WPF – that is intended to be multi- platform. It supports XAML, lookless controls and a flexible styling system, and runs on Windows using Direct2D and other operating systems using Gtk & Cairo.

It’s in an alpha state but there’s an active community excited about it and there’s even a Visual Studio Extension (VSIX) to help you get File | New Project support and create an app fast. You can check out the source for the sample apps here https://github.com/AvaloniaUI/Avalonia/tree/master/samples.

Just in the last few weeks you can see commits as they explore what a Linux-based .NET Core UI app would look like.

You can get an idea of what can be done with a framework like this by taking a look at how someone forked the MSBuildStructuredLog utility and ported it to Avalonia – making it cross-platform – in just hours. You can see a video of the port in action on Twitter. There is also a cross-platform REST client you can use to call your HTTP Web APIs at https://github.com/x2bool/restofus written with Avalonia.

The project is active but also short on documentation. I’m SURE that they’d love to hear from you on Twitter or in the issues on GitHub. Perhaps you could start contributing to open source and help Avalonia out!

The post How to Choose the Best Website Builder in 2017 (Compared) appeared first on WPBeginner.

Website builders are a perfect solution for individuals and small businesses to start a website without hiring a developer. The problem is finding the best website builder can be tricky for beginners. With so many website builders out there, how do you know which is the right solution for you? In this article, we’ll help you choose the best website builder by going over the pros and cons of the most popular options.

How to choose the best website builder

We will be comparing the following website builders in this article. If you are interested in a particular website builder, then just click on the name to skip ahead.

  1. WordPress.org
  2. Sitebuilder.com
  3. Wix
  4. BoldGrid
  5. Shopify
  6. Weebly
  7. Squarespace
  8. iPage Website Builder
  9. GoDaddy Website Builder
  10. WordPress.com
  11. Webs.com
    1. Choosing the Best Website Builder — What to Look for?

      Before comparing the top website builders, we recommend that you write down what you want to do with your website? What are your goals and what features would you like to see on your website.

      For example, you can write down things like: have a blog section, photo gallery, online store, reservation system, contact form, slider, etc.

      If you are unsure about what you want, then check out your competitors or other websites for inspiration.

      Most website builders offer a drag and drop user interface to build your website. You can take advantage of the trial accounts to test drive before you make your final decision.

      Next, you need to consider your growth options. Will you be adding regular updates to your website? Do you need a blog section? Would you be selling more products on your website in the future?

      You need to make sure that the website builder you choose is capable of handling your needs as your business grows.

      That being said, let’s take a look at the top website builder platforms to make your website without hiring a developer.

      1. WordPress

      WordPress

      WordPress.org (also known as self hosted WordPress) is the world’s most popular website building platform. Over 28% of all websites on the internet are powered by WordPress.

      Note: There are two versions of WordPress available. There is self-hosted WordPress.org and WordPress.com. We will talk about WordPress.com later in this article. You can also read our WordPress.org vs WordPress.com comparison for more details.

      The self-hosted WordPress tops our list of best website builder due to its popularity, powerful features, scalability, and ease of use.

      WordPress is a free and open source website builder. This means that you have maximum control over your website compared to any other builder in this list.

      Unlike other website builders, you will need a WordPress hosting account and host your own website (this is a lot easier than it sounds).

      Pros:

Are you seeing a 503 service unavailable error in WordPress? The problem with the 503 error is that it gives no clues about what’s causing it which makes it extremely frustrating for beginners. In this article, we will show you how to fix the 503 service unavailable error in WordPress.

Fixing 503 service unavailable error in WordPress

What Causes 503 Service Unavailable Error in WordPress?

All WordPress hosting companies offer fixed amount of resources for each hosting account. For websites on shared hosting, this limit cannot handle heavy usage of server resources.

The 503 service unavailable error occurs when your web server is unable to get a proper response from a PHP script. This PHP script could be a WordPress plugin, a theme, or a misbehaving custom code snippet.

If the error is caused by heavy usage, a server glitch, or a DDoS attack, then it could automatically disappear in a few minutes.

However, if it is caused by bad code on your website, then it will keep occurring unless you find and disable the code that’s causing it.

That being said, let’s take a look at how to easily fix 503 service unavailable error in WordPress.

Fixing 503 Service Unavailable Error in WordPress

As we mentioned above that this error is caused when your web server is unable to get a proper response from a PHP script running in the background.

To fix it, we will disable all unnecessary PHP scripts one by one until the error is resolved.

Let’s get started.

Deactivate All WordPress Plugins

All your WordPress plugins are PHP scripts, so first you need to deactivate all your WordPress plugins.

Since you cannot login to your WordPress dashboard due to the 503 error, you will need to connect to your website using a FTP client or File Manager in cPanel. Once connected, go to /wp-content/ folder and rename the plugins folder to plugins-old.

Rename plugins folder

Next, you need to create a new folder and name it plugins.

Now you need to visit your WordPress site to see if this resolved the error.

If it did, then this means a plugin installed on your website was causing the error. The above steps have deactivated all WordPress plugins.

To figure out which plugin was causing the issue, you need to switch back to your FTP client or file manager in cPanel. Next, you need to go to /wp-content/ folder and delete the empty plugins folder.

Delete empty plugins folder

After that you need to rename the plugins-old folder to plugins. This will make all your previously installed plugins available to WordPress. However, these plugins will remain deactivated.

You need to visit the WordPress admin area and then go to the plugins page. You can activate your plugins one by one and visit different pages on your website after activating each plugin. Keep doing that until you find the plugin causing the 503 error.

If this step resolved your issue, then you don’t need to follow rest of the instructions on this page. Otherwise, you can move on to the next step.

Switch to a Default WordPress Theme

If deactivating plugins didn’t resolve the issue, then the next step would be to switch to a default WordPress theme. This will deactivate your current WordPress theme.

First, you need to connect to your WordPress site using an FTP client or File Manager in cPanel. Once connected, go to /wp-content/themes/ folder.

Download your current WordPress theme

Locate your currently active WordPress theme and download it to your computer as backup.

After downloading your theme, you can go ahead and delete it from your website

Now, if you already have a default theme like Twenty Seventeen or Twenty Sixteen installed, then it will be automatically activated. If you don’t, then you can go ahead and install a default theme on your website.

Thoroughly check your website to make sure that 503 service unavailable error is resolved.

Troubleshooting

If both methods fail to resolve the error, then you can take the following steps:

  • Contact your WordPress hosting company because they may be able to pin-point what’s causing the issue.
  • As a last resort, you can reinstall WordPress with a fresh copy.
