WordPress development how to know which template is being used?


Identifying the Current WordPress Template

WordPress uses a hierarchy of templates to determine which PHP files will be used to generate a specific web page. Here are some steps to find out which template is being used:

  1. Inspect the Page Source: In most browsers, this can be done by right-clicking the page and then clicking to ‘Inspect’ or ‘View Page Source’, then search for the ‘body_class’ function which can give you clues about the used template.
  2. Use a WordPress Template Detection Plugin: There are plenty of plugins like Show Current Template that can inform you which files are being used to display the page you’re currently viewing.

Please note you need to have a good understanding of WordPress to perform these actions.
