Version in dashboard not updating to 2.1.8.

I upgraded to 2.1.8 from 2.0.18.10 by overwriting all my files and running the utility/updater tool. Everything looks good, no errors or anything, but the version number in the dashboard at the bottom of the window still shows 2.0.18.10. I checked my config.php file in /conf and it wasn't updated with the upgrade. What did I do wrong?

    Try uploading the files again and running the upgrade script. Also, check out the Utility Links plugin by @Adrian.

    I uploaded the files again and re-ran the upgrade script, still no change.

    There are two places where you can see the version of Vanilla. One is misleading and one is correct ;)

    The version information in the config is written at the time you've installed Vanilla and - as far as I know - will never change again. So that is obviously not the best place to get the version from.

    If you open up your /index.php you'll find define('APPLICATION_VERSION', '2.1.8p2'); as one of the first lines. So that's a good place to look for your current version.

    So as long as your index.php shows the correct version number you're fine and don't have to bother too much about that version number in the footer.

    Maybe you have to clear the files in /cache/Smarty/cache? I would bet it is some caching "issue".

    Thanks R_J, checking the version in index.php showed that I'm on the correct version. I'll just ignore what's in the admin Dashboard.

    The footer should be reading the APPLICATION_VERSION definition, IIRC.

    hgtonight, the application version is correct in the index.php file, but it's not reading it. Though I've not cleared out the cache yet as R_J suggested.

    Assuming you are using the default admin theme, it does look at the defined APPLICATION_VERSION per: https://github.com/vanilla/vanilla/blob/9d9b1ba336ce0904e5f6f8d55fc353428174193d/applications/dashboard/views/admin.master.php#L41
