A Theme version can be found in two ways: when you access the WordPress admin panel* or by accessing the main style.css file.

Finding a theme version in the WordPress admin panel

Here are the steps you need to take if you want to find out your theme version via WordPress admin panel:

1. Log in to your WordPress admin panel.

2. Navigate to AppearanceThemes.
3. In the Themes section, you can see all your installed themes. Click on the desired theme, and a pop-up window will appear.
4. On the right side of the pop-up, you’ll see a theme name, and right next to it is a theme version.

Bear in mind that this method works both for active and inactive themes.

Finding a theme version in the CSS file

Here are the steps you need to take if you want to find out your theme version by accessing the style.css file:

1. Once you download the theme you wish to use, you’ll see that the theme files are packed in one .zip file. Unzip that file.
2. Look for the main theme directory, which contains the style.css file.

3. Find the style.css file.
4. Open the file using text or code editor.

5. In the first few lines of the file, you’ll be able to see the line that contains “Version:”. And you are all done with searching for the theme version.

Keep in mind that if your theme is active, you can find a theme version through your WordPress admin panel. All you need to do is log in to your WordPress admin panel and go to AppearanceEditor. The style.css file will be opened by default, and all you’ll have to do is search for the line that contains “Version:”.

*If you want to find a theme version in the WordPress admin panel, the theme has to be uploaded to WordPress.
