Is that website WordPress
Want to know whether or not a website is running the most popular CMS (Content Management System) WordPress? You could look into the code and discover it that way, or you can go for an easier method. All WordPress sites have a log in page located at /wp-admin on the end of the domain.

So, is that website a WordPress? To find out, type the name of the domain in the browser bar at the top of a blank page like www. example .com and add the extension to WordPress’s dashboard to the end of the domain like so: www. example. com/wp-admin and hit enter. This will either take you to the log in screen and you will know it is WordPress, or it will take you to a 404 page.

In some cases, the admin of the WordPress site may have moved the log in to a different extension hidden from the public for security purposes. If this is the case, the way to find is that website a WordPress is to dig into the code. Using developer tools in Chrome, we can scour the website’s code to find the database structures inherent in all WordPress websites.

Too dig into the code, right click on the website and choose “View page source” from the drop down menu. Start at the top of this document and start to look for the extension of the domain with /wp-content/ after it.

Jophiel grew up on a ranch in Paradise Valley, Montana near Chico Hot Springs. Working on the ranch instilled work ethic and self motivation. Filled with this drive, Jophiel started mowing the local school's yards twice a month throughout the summers, at the age of 12. He moved to Billings in 2004, where he has been deeply involved in the local business community ever since. A serial entrepreneur, Jophiel has ran multiple businesses in our local community. The first business, a janitorial and carpet cleaning company, founded in 2005, has employed over 50 locals. Moving on to the media industry, Jophiel and several partners founded Green Directory Montana in the spring of 2007. Green Directory's sustainability ranking software awarded points based on sustainable or "green" actions. These points counted towards a business's total "Green Score," which in turn ranked them against other businesses in their category and throughout the entire site. It also featured a limited edition print version distributed annually. A business acquisition allowed Jophiel to focus on new projects, and a few close business colleagues and Jophiel started Rocky Mountain Mr. & Ms. Magazine, a lifestyle publication for men and women in the Magic City. After a year and a half at the helm of RM3 Magazine, the business was purchased. He now runs a web development company SkyPoint Studios and fathers his son Jaoquin, who plays football, basketball, soccer, and is learning snowboarding from his dad. Recently, has expanded to locations in Havasu, Arizona & Vegas. SkyPoint Studios is a market leader in both Billings & Havasu and Jophiel is working on building that same level of market dominance in Vegas. Specialties: Extensive experience in online and offline business. Especially savvy at WordPress, and operate several sites, one example is the blog: Check out for the latest projects from SkyPoint Studios.
