Is It WordPress?

Nowadays there is always a service to answer all questions, and there is a site to answer the main question here:  Is it WordPress?

Powered by WordPress

This one is of obvious but is not a bad idea to start with it. Just check at the footer of the site for the  Proudly powered by WordPress message.

Admin dashboard folder

If the site doesn’t have the footer message you can try to access the dashboard. Jus to go to the site domain an include the subfolder to open the admin panel and you should be redirected to the login page.

The content folder in source

Another way to see if this is a WordPress is to take a look at the source code in the site. This will depend on your browser but usually, you can make a right click with the mouse and press the option in the panel.
