What CMS is a Web Site Running?

Ever wonder what web content management technology is powering a web site?  This tool is not exhaustive, but can explore a site to identify the content system, analytical tools and social plugins that the site may be running.  It is a beta tool and we welcome feedback.

Enter a domain below and check it out.  Looking forward to comments!

     @ultan Thanks Ultan.  At some point I will get around to writing a hook to send me any URLs for misses so I can keep updating the underlying dictionary.  Appreciate the feedback 🙂

    George Echim Hey George – please try again – all should work now.  Performed some major site updates last week.  Also, have some new CMS definitions that I will add this week to the detection script here.
