Have you ever…
- wanted one source for the most popular WordPress themes?
- wanted a way to look at websites actively using the most popular WordPress themes?
- thought it would be more useful if popularity was based on the number of unique domains actively using a given theme, as opposed to just the sheer number of downloads or sales?
- thought it would be cool if this one source included all WordPress themes, as opposed to just a subset of them?
I have, so I built WPSNIFFER precisely to meet this need.
What is WPSNIFFER?
WPSNIFFER is a Google Chrome extension that detects WordPress themes and displays usage statistics on its website at WPSNIFFER.
Where does WPSNIFFER get its data?
Every time a user of the WPSNIFFER Chrome extension detects a WordPress theme this data is anonymously stored in a central database. Currently WPSNIFFER has 10,944 active users providing it with WordPress theme usage data.
How can I help make WPSNIFFER better?
You can help make WPSNIFFER’s data more comprehensive by installing and using the WPSNIFFER Chrome Extension. The more unique WordPress websites you “sniff” the better.

What are the future plans for WPSNIFFER?
WordPress themes are just the beginning. The plan is to add detection for WordPress plugins and WordPress web hosts in the future.
