Hi Ashish ,

Yes , It is possible to see which cms website is using by looking at html source code by looking at the folder structure and stuff.

Like Wordpress , There usually have wp-content url in html source code.

There are also tools on internet that will automatically scan and determine which cms the website are currently using but it isn't 100% accurate.

Such as CMS Detector : http://guess.scritch.org/


Dear Juthawong/Ashish,

I found this very handy tools that may also add more insight "BuiltWith" and Wappalyzer.

Hope this adds value.
