To check which version of WordPress you are using, follow these steps:
- Log in to your WordPress dashboard.
- Look for the “At a Glance” box on the dashboard. You should see a message that says “You are using WordPress [version number].”
- Alternatively, you can check the version number by scrolling down to the bottom of the dashboard page. You should see the version number listed in the footer.
If you have a newer version of WordPress installed, you may also see a notification in the dashboard prompting you to update to the latest version.
You can also check the version of WordPress by viewing the source code of your website. To do this, right-click anywhere on your website and select “View Page Source.” Look for the following words in code:
“meta name generator”
The version number should be listed in the content attribute.
It’s important to keep your WordPress installation up-to-date to ensure that your website is secure and running smoothly. You can update to the latest version of WordPress from the dashboard by clicking the “Update Now” button if a new version is available.
