    I really hope that I am not overlooking something really obvious.  If I am, I will greatly appreciate the schooling and will humbly apologize. So having stated that...

    I use SiteFinity for several of my clients.  Some I host, some I don't.  Due to that, among other things, I have clients on various versions of SiteFinity.  Because of that, I have a hard time remembering what version and/or service pack any given client is on.  As you might guess, this info is really important when wanting/needing to deploy updates, marketplace tools or custom code.  To help myself with this, in lieu of version info built in, I have resorted to adding the info to my web.config and reading that onto the admin dashboard.  Unfortunately, every time I do an upgrade, I have to remember to update the web.config, and to be careful not to accidentally overwrite my code.  That's why having it come directly from you guys would be awesome.  Moreover, it would be great specifically to have that information on the individual site's dashboard.  Having it on the "project home" in addition would be fine as well, but I am not always able to log onto the server, and for security purposes, I do not allow the project manager to be accessed externally.  Of course, I can keep doing what I am, but any consideration for adding this would be greatly appreciated.

    Hello Allen,

    Thank you for using our services.

    Could you please take a look at the following KB article: How to check your current Sitefinity version? It describes how to check each Sitefinity website's specific version. To put it short just open a page from a Sitefinity website view its source. Then look for this html tag:
    <meta name="Generator" content="Sitefinity 3.x.xxxx:x" />

    You can also take a look at the version of any Sitefinity assembly in the website's bin directory. For example Telerik.Cms.dll.

    In Sitefinity 4.0 the project manager will show each project's specific version.

    Kind regards,
    Radoslav Georgiev
    the Telerik team
