Is there anything that can check if a website is using a pre-made template that is also available for resell on various free/paid template websites?

The website in question is: http://lordandhogan.com/

It looks like a pre-made template.

hi please don’t make multiple threads on the same topic…

as for if its possible to tell if something is a template or not no not unless theres hints in the source code. could it be a template yes could it be custom yes you could always email the webmaster to find out

It’s custom. Nobody would buy a template that bad.


#4

The elements in the flash just look so “pre-made.”


#5

After doing some digging, NOPE. It’s NOT custom. We checked their images directory on their website at:

http://www.lordandhogan.com/images/temp/

In particular, take a look at this file:

http://lordandhogan.com/images/temp/01_home_r1_c1.jpg

That is the key showing that the template was pre-made. It looks like something purchased off of template monster back in the day. Now, if only we can find the template they used. We’re trying to help a client locate the original template.

Yup that wreaks of Template Monster. Pretty sure I’ve seen it too. Unfortunately they made a gazillion templates like that with the “random metallic robotic objects”…in this case, a TV.

Found it. http://www.templateshunt.com/template.php?id=4887

For the sake of your users and the internet, please buy a flash template with some usability. :frowning:

Seriously, that’s a free professional advice - this template just isn’t working for the content and for the user experience.

LOL nice one :slight_smile: It’s still Template Monster though isn’t it? That site you list is just one of a billion resellers it looks like :wink:

Is that directed towards the site owner or me? Because we didn’t purchase the template. The site owner’s previous web developer did. lol

I misunderstood that you want this template for your business. :smiley: Which didn’t really make a lot of sense, since you obviously purchase quality stuff from Envato. :stuck_out_tongue:

Of course. lol
