How We Detect Installations of WordPress


A CMS will sometimes include a meta tag within the html of each page. This is usually a "generator" tag like <meta name="generator" content="What CMS" /> but could also be "application-name", "Powered-By" or anyting else the CMS creators decide to use.


HTTP headers, including cookies, can be used in same situations to identify a CMS.


If a CMS doesn't have meta tags, it will often have other uniquely identifiable html markup. This can range from unique html comments, ids or classes.


Some content management systems also offer hosting. A website hosted on a CMS developer's domain is a dead giveaway.


In addition to detecting the CMS, in some cases we are able to accurately detect which version of the CMS is being used.

Let us know if you have any suggestions on how we can better detect WordPress installations
