This plugin displays the current WordPress version number along with the following environment in the admin footer:
- Current WordPress version info, if there is an update available it displays the current and latest versions side by side
- PHP version
- Web Server used
- MySQL version
What’s the reason for building this Plugin
I always disliked the fact that WordPress does not display the current version number in the footer whenever there is a new release.
If you are a plugin developer and a user experiences a problem, they could install this plugin and send you a screenshot of their admin footer (or copy the text of course) to inform you about the cornerstones of their setup.
- Upload the plugin to your plugins directory (possibly
/wp-content/plugins/), or install the plugin through the WordPress plugins screen directly.
- Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ screen in WordPress
