The latest version of civicrm no longer prints the version in the footer. Is this correct? How do I find the version I am running?

If you have CiviCRM 4.7 then from the top menu:

Administer > Administration Console > System Status

Your version number will be in the CiviCRM Up-to-Date section.

System Status page

[side note: the demo version of Wordpress CiviCRM does have the version number in the footer -- not sure why you're not seeing it.]

  • It's in the status page. It's not in the footer. v4.7.1. – P a u l Feb 21 '16 at 20:39
  • It's only in the footer on internal pages, so that may be the issue. – Andrew Hunt Feb 23 '16 at 2:55

You can also check the version from the file: civicrm-version.php in the downloaded folder of civicrm.

File path : civicrm/civicrm-version.php

If you have access to your DB you can look in the civicrm_domain table for field= version

Another way from the API (4.7 onward) is to use the System.check API:

$result = civicrm_api3('System', 'check', array(
  'name' => "checkVersion",
));

to get something like

Array
(
    [is_error] => 0
    [version] => 3
    [count] => 1
    [id] => 5
    [values] => Array
        (
            [5] => Array
                (
                    [name] => checkVersion
                    [message] => CiviCRM version 4.7.2 is up-to-date.
                    [title] => CiviCRM Up-to-Date
                    [severity] => info
                    [severity_id] => 1
                    [is_visible] => 1
                    [icon] => fa-cloud-upload
                    [id] => 5
                )

        )

)

From the API, you can also do System.get, which returns something like:

Array
(
    [is_error] => 0
    [version] => 3
    [count] => 1
    [id] => 0
    [values] => Array
        (
            [0] => Array
                (
                    [version] => <3-part version number>
                    [uf] => <CMS type>
                )

        )

)
