    Hey can someone tell if if iDownloadBlog uses a service to like wordpress or something like that or did Cody, Sebastian, etc… develop this app from HTML?

    • James G

      I see a couple of refs to wordpress in the source code of this page, but that doesn’t necessarily indicate it’s a wordpress theme. Often times websites will take a theme and then tweak it for their own.

    • Jonathan

      Looking at the source code, it appears they use WordPress 4.1. But as James said, it doesn’t necessarily mean iDB didn’t build this website. My best guess is that they took a theme, and heavily modified it.

      I do that all the time. So much easier than starting from scratch..

    Yes it’s WordPress with WPTouch Pro for mobile version
