FAQ

Newer version of wordpress is available but I don’t get emails

Check your spam folder in email account

I’ve got newest version but plugin sends me notifications, which says that i have installed wordpress in strange version ‘abc’

This is caused by plugin WP Security Scan. Deactivate it or look into its code and deacctivate this place, which changes variable $wp_version into string ‘abc’.
