Most people that blog or own a website spend a lot of time trying to figure out how to make it look its best and perform its best. Even after many hours of adjustments you are still bound to see other websites that have a unique feature that appeals to you.
If you find a feature or blog you particularly like it is easy to figure out how it was done or how to do it yourself. You can scour the page hoping they were novice enough to leave the theme name and plugin names in the footer or sidebar somewhere to give you a clue. Honestly though, if the site is impressive you will not usually find that.
There is a far simpler and more direct method of determining the exact what and how.
By simply right clicking in your browser window a wealth of information is available. The best browser to get information from is, in my opinion, Chrome. Open up any webpage using Chrome as your browser and you will see a list of options- on the bottom of the list (or somewhere if you are running additional plugins in your browser there is Inspect Element as a clickable option.
When you click this all of the coding and information about the page is available for you to look through. Making the assumption that if you are reading this you are not an expert coder it will be very intimidating on first glance. If you have ever clicked this before out of curiosity you probably quickly closed it and went on. This time spend a few minutes looking at it.
If you are not familiar with HTML and CSS do not be concerned. It is not needed for the purpose of figuring out a lot of information. Instead, ignore the hash marks and inequality symbols and basically things that you do not understand and concentrate on reading the parts you can.
Within a few seconds you will start to pull out useful information. If you like the overall look then the theme is readily apparent unless completely manually hand coded (very very rare). You will see a line, more likely a number of lines that list the url followed by all you need to know about what theme is used as a framework and what plug in is used to tender the specific function. Even better- most are clickable which will tell you the exact name and version of the plugin for you to Google and find it for your own use.
There are a lot of different tabs and information available. If you click them it will change the display to different exact pieces of the coding. The trick to reading the coding is to not concentrate on the parts you do not understand but rather look for what you can read.
Even a complete novice at coding can learn a lot of information useful on their own blog if they concentrate on reading the parts that make sense. In the process you will also find over time the coding is not nearly as confusing as it appears on first glance. Universal rentals also provides simple solutions to problems when you find yourself in need of a computer or hardware as opposed to software questions.
