Today we’re going to show you How to check your WordPress version, how to check

the version of WordPress you’re using

including on sites that you don’t have

admin access to this may be useful for

debugging issues or checking

compatibility with plugins so let’s hop

right into it.

Steps to check the WordPress version

When we’re on our

WordPress dashboard logged in and you

can see on the bottom right if you just

scroll down the row press version is

listed there, so we’re using five-point

two point two it’s also listed in the

add a glance area this is the

the easiest way to find what version of

WordPress you’re using but if you don’t

have access to a WordPress site we’re

going to show you how to do that.

What will you do if you don’t have admin access?

So if you want to check the WordPress version

of a site that you don’t have admin

access to it’s simple

this may be useful for seeing what

a competitor is using or debugging issues

right now we’re logged out on a clean

site so all we’re going to do it right

click and do show page source

we’re in Safari, but it’s very similar in

Chrome you can just right click and hit

view page source and you can see here

this is the source code down here and

let’s bring this up and then we’re going to

control F, and we’re going to find on

the page generator and you can see here

there’s actually a meta tag that shows

what version of WordPress is used to

generate the page. I will note a lot of

WordPress security plugins disable this

so if you don’t see it on the page

that’s most likely why and it’s as easy

as that

checking the WordPress version of just

about any site even if you’re logged in

or not, now if these techniques didn’t work

there’s some more listed in the blog

post and if those don’t work then most likely

the site has excellent security and

they’re not going to let you see what

WordPress version you’re using and you

will need to log in to see the WordPress

version and thanks again for watching

have a great day.
