It's definitely a wordpress site, I can tell from the source code. I take it that you don't have access to the dashboard for the firstlinehealthstytems site. ???

Ryan,

That is not my wordpress site.

As I stated, a friend sent me the link asking if I could build a site for him that looks like that site.

My question is whether anyone knows the name of the theme used to build that site.

I might add here that if anyone knows of any theme close replicating especially the home page, I would appreciate it.

Thanks

This doesn't identify the theme by name, but it might provide some hints:
https://builtwith.com/firstlinehealthsystems.com

Looks like it's built by htthttp://www.proweaver.com/  You might just call them up and ask.

The file domain.com/wp-content/themes/themename/style.css file tends to contain theme information if it's present. There is a standard way that Wordpress pulls information from the comments at the start of the file for display in the Dashboard > Appearance > Themes page, so sometimes the theme name is in that file (if you view the source of it).

In this case, the file matching that path is http://www.firstlinehealthsystems.com/wp-content/themes/firstlinehs/style.css

When a 3rd party theme has custom overrides to its code, this is done by creating a "child theme" where any required overrides are stored in the child theme and remaining code is loaded from the parent theme. If you want to find the theme for a website, then you really need to know what the parent theme is.

A child theme tends to have an @import command in it's style.css file when it loads styles from the parent. eg for website http://www.smartredfox.com/ (a Wordpress plugin website), the style.css is at http://www.smartredfox.com/wp-content/themes/Avada-Child-Theme/style.css and that file has an import command
@import url("../Avada/style.css");

Open in new window

where it loads the style from the parent theme. In this case, the folder name "Avada-Child-Theme" clearly gives the parent theme name (Avada) but even if it didn't, you can see the folder name of the parent theme in the import command.

Folder names can be changed though, with little effort, so it's no guaranteed way of finding the parent theme. If you look at the style.css of the parent theme at http://www.smartredfox.com/wp-content/themes/Avada/style.css then you can see the theme details in the header of the file:
/*
Theme Name: Avada
Description: A business, portfolio and blog theme.
Author: ThemeFusion
Theme URI: http://theme-fusion.com/avada/
Author URI: http://themeforest.net/user/ThemeFusion
Version: 3.0.1
License: GNU General Public License
License URI: license.txt
*/

Open in new window


Sadly there is no import command in the style.css for firstlinehealthsystems.com, nor is there any theme information in the header, so it is possibly a custom written theme, or the developer of the site has intentionally hidden that information from view.

I see there's a free online tool to check all that stuff automatically, here: http://www.wpthemedetector.com/

It came to the same conclusion as I did though.

If you want an excellent theme that is easy to use and provides your customers with drag and drop page/post editing functionality then I'd have a look at Enfold.

It does require a licence purchase but it is worth it.

I too regularly use the Enfold theme. The drag and drop editing is pretty good, but possibly the best thing about it is that for a one off purchase you get free updates for the life of the theme (and because it's popular, it is looking like it will have a very long life).
