How to get WordPress Version Number of Your Website?

For migrating the staging website to the production site by using WP Staging Pro it’s highly recommended to use the same version of WordPress on both production and staging website.

In this article, I am going to show you how to easily check which WordPress version you use.

The first thing you need to do is log in to the admin dashboard of your WordPress site. From there scroll down to the bottom of the page.

This is the easiest way to find which WordPress version you are using.
