get the theme version

  • So essentially we use to do this:

    function get_current_theme_version(){
        $this->aisis_current_theme_version = get_theme_data(get_theme_root() . '/Aisis/style.css');
        return $this->aisis_current_theme_version['Version'];
    }

    which if your theme style.css said the version was 1.0 you would get 1.0 back. Now because get_theme_data is deprecated and we are to use wp_get_theme_data I thought I could do:

    function get_current_theme_version(){
        $this->aisis_current_theme_version = wp_get_theme(get_theme_root() . '/Aisis/style.css');
        return $this->aisis_current_theme_version['Version'];
    }

    nope….Doesn’t work. I need to get the theme data and not have wordpress be like “thats wrong. your bad. no! don’t do that!” So whats the “new” way to get the theme version?
