Sometimes I Forget…

Sometimes I Forget…

Sometimes I forget that what comes easy to me doesn’t necessarily come easy to you.

Sometimes I forget that because I know it I assume that you do to.

Sometimes I forget to share what I’ve learned…

So here goes –

In the last few months, I’ve taken a leap of faith or AKA “open BIG mouth”

I was working on designing this site. Playing around with design concepts and trying to figure out how to customize a theme.

You can get free themes when you’re designing a website (or WordPress site, or Blog), but sometimes you’re very limited in how you can customize them.

I hunted around for a bit and started to check out what others use. And that’s when I discovered the Thesis theme. It seems that it is quite popular among designers.

But that’s not really what I wanted to share.

What I wanted to share, is how you actually figure out what others are using on their sites.

You see, I was talking with my accountability buddy (we talk every day or almost every day) – and she was telling me that she was working on a graphic design for a website. She then said how she was modelling it off another site and wondered what theme they were using.

Easy peezy I said.

Here goes:

  1. Once you have loaded the website in your favourite internet browser, just right click any where in the screen and a pop-up menu should appear.
  2. Click on the View page source (depending on your browser the exact phrase might be slightly different)
  3. Wade through the eye-boggling code. (I didn’t say that it wouldn’t make your eyes gloss over 🙂

In there you will find things like the theme information and plugins that are used on the site.

Why re-invent the wheel, eh?

That’s my tip-n-trick for today. When you’re wondering just exactly how someone did something, just view page source.
