I've been asked to create an online library of product images and copy that can be downloaded. While searching Google, I ran across this site that is similar to what I'm looking to accomplish: http://www.scottsworkbench.com.

Does anyone know what was used to create the site? It doesn't appear to be something that was custom developed.

Or, are there better options available? Personally, I would prefer to stick with something that utilizes php.

Thanks.  I also run Wappalyzer as a Firefox plugin and that will tell you what a site is built on but Built With does a better job.

And this concludes the link-only portion of the program :)

Thanks Jason, those are some great links. Very helpful. I was hoping it would be something I could purchase and customize, but that doesn't appear to be the case.

Ideally I would like to find a software/platform solution that's prebuilt and can be up and running quickly. I need to be able to upload product images, descriptions and related files for logged in users to download. Open source would be preferred, but not required.

Sorry, I misunderstood the question.  I thought you were asking for software to know what a site was built with for purchase.  Ignore me, having a bad day due to lack of coffee.

----------------------------------

While you can always see what technologies built a site, it's harder (but not impossible) to know if a site is custom built or if it used a pre-rolled system (A CMS or similar).

According to what I can see from the above, the site is most likely a custom built system.  However, most of the open-source CMS platforms (WordPress, Joomla, Drupal) have this functionality available to them either as part of the core or via a plugin/extension.
