Check What Version of WordPress You Are Running
Updated: June 12, 2013
The version number of the current installed version of WordPress is listed in several places.
In the root directory of the WordPress installation the readme.html lists the version number.
In the admin interface of WordPress you can see what version you are running from the dashboard, in most versions it is at the bottom of the page, and in newer versions it will also indicate if there is a new version available.
In the source code of the website's pages the version number is listed in the following line:
<meta name="generator" content="WordPress ">
You can also check what version of WordPress is running using our WordPress Version Check tool, which is available in a web-based version and a web browser extension for Firefox and Chrome. If you have access to a server you can check what versions of WordPress are being used on it with our Web Software Version Check tool.
