Can’t find WordPress version if its older than current

Goal: to find what’s the current version of WordPress within /wp-admin.


  • Lower-right corner tells me to get 4.1.
  • The “WordPress Updates” page also tells me to upgrade to 4.1.

I expected that a normal user should be able to easily get this information.

P.S. Both manually visiting /wp-admin/about.php or View Source worked, but a normal user would think of those.

Great, thanks, I didn’t think of that, the module must’ve been hidden. Anyway, I think it would be great if the current version is more prominent if there’s an update pending.

31046.diff is a proposed minimal wording change to indicate the current version and the available update.

For reference, the current strings are:

  • Version $current_version (Up-to-date, or no permissions to update)
  • You are using a development version ($current_version). Cool! Please <a>stay updated</a>.
  • Get Version <a>$version</a> (update available)
