how to tell what moodle version you have
 

I occasionaly help other users with moodle but often they are not sure which version of Moodle they are using. Is there a link anywhere on the admin interface that confirms the Moodle version that is in use? Alternatively how else could we find out (assuming the user doesn't have ftp access)

Or

Site Administration => Notifications

One click less big grin

EDIT:
Interestingly that won't work any more in 2.0. A lot of the notices have been removed.

Re: how to tell what moodle version you have
 

umm Okay I know this is a fairly old thread but this is the same as my question, how do I find the version of the Moodle that we are using. So rather than starting a new thread I will continue this one. None of these methods seem to work for me, and I have Site manager access. is there another way for some of the newer versions ?

It depends.  If you are an administrator, then check the Site administration > Notifications link.  The version is there.  If a Site Manager doesn't have this permission, then probably you won't be successful.

There is a tracker item somewhere asking for logged in users with teacher role to have access to the Moodle version.

I suppose you could create course backup and then check the configuration file in an editor. At least this was working in 1.9.

Confirmed.  Download backup (the .mbz file).  Change the filename extension to .zip.  Unzip to a 'test' folder.

Extracted from the zip is a moodle_backup.xml file.  Opening that with any text editor, will show at the top (a real example):

    <moodle_version>2011120500</moodle_version>
    <moodle_release>2.2 (Build: 20111205)</moodle_release>
