How to find which version of Joomla! I'm using?

Post by deck2deck » Thu Jan 03, 2008 3:29 pm

I already know this is a stupid question, but how do I find which version of Joomla! I'm currently using (so that I'll know which patch to use to upgrade to .13?)

Thanks!!  (I searched the forums first but couldn't find the answer to this question)...

You know your going to kick yourself!

Look at the bottom of each page in the admin. Commence kicking

THANK YOU. It's one of those stupid questions everybody's glad someone else asked... because we were all wondering too. And thanks for the chuckle this morning--scrolled to the bottom, there it was, and then I had a good laugh at myself. And commenced kicking.

It is now June 2013. I am an absolute beginner trying to confirm which version of joomla I installed (I think it was 3.1). I do not see a version number at the bottom of the Administrator side, and neither do I find "/libraries/joomla/version.php". Can I get an updated answer?

Found my own answer. On the Control Panel, under the right side column titled "Quick Icons", there is a choice near the bottom of the list that reads "Joomla is up to date" (of course, if it isn't, the text would say something else;-). If you click on this, it tells you what version of Joomla you are running.

Happened to stumble upon this shortly after you did, redsue12, since I was looking for the same information.

In Joomla 3.1.1, you can go to System > System Information in Administrator. Alternatively, you can find this information at the top of /joomla.xml (see the <version /> element) or /libraries/cms/version/version.php (see $RELEASE and $DEV_LEVEL).

I'm more concerned doing this via PHP....any examples or documentation for this?

I don't see a need for separate versions of some modules/plugins in 2.5 -> 3.0 as the code is sometimes the same and even if slightly different it's easy enough to code against. I have one function I need to switch and that's it regarding Joomla framework if it is 2.5 or 3.x.

All I need is the Joomla version to key off so I can write one plugin that's 2.5 & 3 compatible.

Example,

<?php
if( VERSION 3 )
{
//New 3 function
}
else
{
//2.5 & 1.5 use the same in this area...I think
}
?>

Let me know, thanks.

Good question, I did not find the version looking everywhere then I went to System Information and got it there. Path is... Site->System Information. I am referring to Joomla 2.5.14 maybe the other version it could become easier to find out.

Visually it's very easy for reference to 'look up', but I guess no coding examples to be able to figure it out programatically? Probably a define in joomla config than maybe that can be used...
