So what version am I running? (4 posts)

    Once upon a time, the WordPress version was printed at the bottom of the screen in the Admin area.

    Now, it appears to say just "Get WordPress 2.6" instead of "WordPress 2.5.1".

    I administer a dozen or so sites, some very lightly used, so they're not all kept up to rev. [Mainly because I've had a couple of bad experiences with upgrades breaking plugins and I don't always have time "right now" to track down all those issues. And, again these are very lightly used.]

    I can read the "Get WordPress 2.6" at the top of the screen. I'd really like an easy way to find the current version (so I can estimate the level of difficulty of the upgrade). Could that be added to the default footer on the Dashboard at least?

    Just a note though -- you folks are doing a FABULOUS job at taking the pain out of the upgrade to WordPress itself. Thanks so much!

    Apologies if this has already changed for 2.6 (but since even if I install it, it'll be awhile before I can tell if it's changed, I thought I'd post).

    I also would like the version number to be somewhere in the WP backend.

    Until then its easy to view the source of your WordPress page. The version is in there!

  4. It's at the bottom of every admin page.
