How to detect if site is made in drupal?

11 replies
I was looking at source code of theonion.com and i am not able to detect whether it is built on drupal cms or any other.
I have read somewhere that this site is built on Drupal cms.
But how can one found out that site is built on drupal or not?

    I've looked at the site and some of the page sources and files but can't find anything to indicate whether or not it is a Drupal based site.

    It doesn't look like a CMS that I recognise such as Joomla etc.

    Drupal sites are very flexible. It's just a developers tool, so it may not leave any clue as to what CMS is behind it.

    TheOnion.com doesn't use Drupal anymore. The Onion uses Django now (at least a year ago they were).

    Install Firebug extension for firefox.
    Once installed. Visit any site.

    If you wanna check, whether the site's made in drupal, then enable firebug, click on the DOM tab. under it, if there is an entry for drupal, then yes, the site is indeed made in drupal.

    Site theonion.com is not using any CMS as far as I know. You can search for some online tools that can find out if the site is using any CMS. The other way is to use the firebug extension in Firefox. To do this visit the site you want and enable firebug. Then open DOM tab. If there is entry for any CMS then that website is using that particular CMS.

    There is a Firefox addon called Wappalyzer that will tell you the CMS a website is using, it works fairly well though I think some sites that I read are using Drupal it doesn't detect. So I suspect that they disguise themselves somehow to keep from being fingered as a drupal site. Anyway here is the link to the add-on.
