    Hello all, Happy Holidays

    I am trying to figure out what version of WP I am using? Being VERY new to WP, I am not able to find this.

    My blog

    The reason I ask, is I understand I need to be on a version 2.9 and don’t want to upgrade to a 3.03 (could be a little off on those numbers). I am trying to upload a custom WP theme and I have it in a .zip file (I am also on a MAC) and the version I am on won’t allow me to upload a .zip custom theme

    Thanks for your help

    The blog I need help with is



    Regardless of what version, here on the free WordPress.COM, you can’t upload/use Custom Themes.

    Learn more:



    All free blogs from and being free hosted by wordpress.COM are running on the latest stable version of wordpress which is 3.0.3. As our blogs are gree hosted Staff takes care of all version upgrades for us – we do nothing.

    Why are you asking this question? It’s not relevant to users because we don not have FTP access to our blogs and cannot upload themes or plugins into them. Please see the sticky post at the head of the forum for clarity on the disfferences between free blogs from and being free hosted by wordpress.COM and wordpress.ORG isntalls for self hosting.



    OOPS! The version we are running on here is 3.1.



    Well, it’s a HIGHLY CUSTOMIZED version of that. They are never exactly identical to the versions released by Wp.ORG.
