Simply question, how do we find out what version of WordPress is running? For beginners a useful thing. There are several options how to find out.
Every WordPress install has a readme.html file. So just try to type www.yourdomain.com/readme.html
Look in a wp-includes/version.php file. You can find something like this:
/** * The WordPress version string * * @global string $wp_version */ $wp_version = '4.8.2';
You should be able to view source on the site and look for this meta tag (work in older WordPress version):
<meta name="generator" content="WordPress 4.8.2" />
You can see the WordPress version by clicking the WP logo which is located at the left-top position in admin side. You will see a title like this: “Welcome to WordPress 4.8.2”.
You can get the WordPress version by the following code:
<?php bloginfo('version'); ?>
