    I’m trying to submit a site for review/showcase at the following url:

    When I submit the information requested, I get a “Oops” page declaring that the site isn’t on the latest version of WordPress and only sites that are using the latest version of WP will be reviewed.

    The problem is that the site IS on the latest version of WP. What do I do now??

    Site I’m attempting to submit:

    3.4 was just rolled out.

    I’m having the same problem. WordPress version installed is 3.4.1. The Dashboard tells me “You have the latest version of WordPress”. states that the “latest stable release of WordPress” is version 3.4.1, yet I’m getting the error message “Whoops! We were unable to detect the latest version of WordPress at the given URL”.

    I just found how to do it. You have to add this line into the header of your theme : <meta name=”generator” content=”WordPress 3.4.2″ />

    Just replace 3.4.2 with your WordPress version 😉

    You actually don’t need to add a thing…

    All themes should be using wp_head in the header.php file of the theme, as many plugins rely on that being there to function

    The WordPress theme version is automatically inserted in your source code by wp_head (unless your theme also has the below code, which removes the generator info from the source)

    remove_action('wp_head', 'wp_generator');

    @rev. Voodoo : i know that, but some plugins remove some informations from wp_head to improve performance. That’s why some users may have to add this code manually.
