    Function Reference/get theme data

    1) open the site in firefox
    2) Right click on any empty space on the blog and click view info.
    3) Look In To The Media Option

    1) open the following web page 
    2) Add your URL

    Here's the information you're after, extracted straight from the theme's style.css file:

    Theme Name: News Child Theme
    Theme URI:
    Description: News is a two or three column child theme created for the Genesis Framework.
    Author: StudioPress
    Author URI:
    Version: 2.0.1

    It's pretty easy to get there once you know how. I was reading about CSS & WordPress customization the other week and almost all themes will have a description at the beginning of the stylesheet containing the information you're after.
    Here's how I got there:

    I went to and (in Chrome) right clicked the page and chose "View Source". The style sheet was linked near the beginning of the code, so I clicked on it and Chrome opened it up in a new tab. The information I pasted above was then right in front of me, at the top of the stylesheet.

    Hopefully this helps you out!
