I'm not really familiar with word press.

But the only way to see is to view the source code side by side. is my bet.

This way can be used in the case we don't have a tool to compare content between files. :)

Windows

fc /a file1.php file2.php
Running this on windows command?

I would recommend using Winmerge

There are any good tool to compare file content but if you want to compare more files between folders together then this tool can be a good choice.
After installed it on your PC, you can want to check its options and changing some configurations there

Edit \ Options

Ctrl + O

You can compare content between 2 different folders or compare a folder with itself ( for the folder with changes ) on Left, Right

You can change filter to *.css or *.php if you only want to compare in PHP or CSS files...etc

After you click OK then you will have a list of files that were compared.

You can click on a file and see the differences like this

Hope it helps!
