Hi. Sorry to ask such an obvious question. I know exactly where to look to find which version of WordPress I am using, but it is not there! Why?
(I am on my Dashboard page, looking at the “Right Now” section where comments, spam, posts, theme etc. are displayed. Its supposed to be right under my theme, but it’s not. It’s also not at the bottom of any page.)
The staff do the updates at WordPress.COM for you – and they are never running exactly the latest release – so the number would not be very relevant in many ways – you are running something that is more current than the release at WordPress.ORG – they are working on 3.5 that will be released soon if you really want to know – they do a lot of testing here of the core WordPress software here –
