Has my hosting company installed the wrong version of Vanilla? How do I tell?

edited March 2012 in Vanilla 2.0 - 2.2


I'm very much a novice with Vanilla. And indeed Wordpress.
I am hosting my Wordpress site using the hosting company iPage, which very conveniently provided a script to install Vanilla.

I ran this installation (a couple of months ago) and it reported Vanilla was installing, and then that the installation was complete. Since then I have done some tailoring of colours, categories etc.

I've only just noticed that if I view "installed plugins" from the Wordpress dashboard, it shows unsurprisingly that Vanilla is one of the installed plugins, BUT under the 'description' heading, it shows the version to be 1.1.3

How do I determine which version of vanilla is installed? Is it possible that the installed in iPage installed the wrong one?

Thanks in anticipation.

    You're seeing the version number in WordPress? That's probably just the version number for the WordPress plugin, not of Vanilla itself.

    I don't think that's possible. You'd need to look in the footer of the Vanilla Dashboard.

    The Vanilla Dashboard within Vanilla itself, nothing to do with Wordpress. It's how you administer the forum and whatnot. If you're logged in as a forum administrator there should be a Dashboard link in the Vanilla navbar.
