Have you ever seen a site and wondered how it was built? If you are into online marketing, web development, SEO, web design or any of the above, you must ask yourself that question several times a day. Now with CMS Detect, you can just enter the URL of the site in question and we will answer your "What CMS is this?" question. We use a complex algorithm to determine which CMS or framework sites are built with.
We are able to detect hundreds of website platforms, here are some of the main CMS' and frameworks:
With so many CMS' and Website builders out there, it's only natural that you will encounter lots of websites on a daily basis and wonder if they were custom built or built with a known CMS. The amount of times people in the digital arena ask themselves "What CMS is this?" or "How did they build this site?" is not a small number. Now with our algorithm CMS detector, we can recognize (some would say guess) hundreds of CMS', frameworks and website builders. Now when you find a cool site that you want to know how it was built, just come here and add the URL to the search bar and we will do the rest.
Detecting what CMS is being used on a given website can be simple and sometimes it can be daunting. A lot of website builders use a "generator meta tag" which makes it really easy to detect which CMS is being used. Here is an example of such a tag:
<meta name="generator" content="WordPress 4.0.1" />
There are a few other options that can be used but these are the main giveaways that help us run the CMS Detector.
Not only can we detect a large amount of CMS' and website builders, we can also detect a few frameworks such as
Codeignitor. So now when you use our CMS detector tool, not only will you get the best CMS and website builder results, we take it a step further with our framework detector abilities. A framework is much harder to detect, since it is only the platform on which developers choose to build their sites. The developer has full control over the entire HTML, so you will never see a meta tag in a
Laravel site, letting us know that the site is built with
Laravel. For that reason, it's much harder to detect Frameworks, but nevertheless we can accurately detect them and will show you them in the results if you search for a site built with such a framework.
CMS detection can be an easy task, though it can also be pretty hard. That's the reason that when you see anyone in a Facebook group or a forum asking "What CMS is that?", you will find exactly 2 kinds of results:
Shopify, but there are various other platforms that you need to take into account - and we do just that!
We are talking about detecting a CMS here but what is a CMS? CMS stands for: "Content Management System". Meaning - the system that manages our content. In the olden days we used to create new files for each and every post we wanted to add (or page), now this all happens in the backend. We have a management system that manages the content that we add to it instead of creating new files all day long which makes it impossible to manage and make changes in scale.
By using our Chrome extension, you can detect any website's CMS on the go. All you have to do is go to the extension page, install it and the next time you are on a site that you want to detect its CMS, just hit the "CMS Detect" logo in your Chrome browser ans we will do the rest. You will get the name of the CMS just like you do on the actual site.
