How to know what version of extensions are used in joomla-web-site from user's point of view?

by Elvin   Last Updated July 04, 2019 15:10 PM

First of all, I would like to check myself: the extension is an aggregate of modules, plugins and components? Am I right? So if I'm right, than modules, plugins and components have the same versions. Is it also true?

The problem is: I'm a user and I'm to find out what version of extensions are used on Joomla-site.

In simple cases the version is already written,like here:

JWallpapers - A lightweight yet powerful image gallery component with community building capabilities
 * 
 * @version 2.2.2 $Id: default.css 558 2010-12-16 12:29:41Z amazeika $
 * @package JWallpapers

#picture_container,#picture_right_content,#thumbs_right_section,#thumbs_left_section,#frontend_tagging_section,#pic_tags_section
    {
    float: left;
    border: none !important;
}

.jw_category_title {
    float: left;
    border: none !important;
} 

But how to find out the version of extensions if there is no such a record?

I also looked here but the answerer used a php-script. Is it possible for a usual user to run such a script? Or there is other ways to find out a version of extensions ?

A extension, is not the combination of a component, module and plugin. This is what a package is

Plugins, Modules, Components, Templates are all types of extensions.


So if I'm right, than modules, plugins and components have the same versions. Is it also true?

No. They're all separate, so they'll use different versions.


But how to find out the version of extensions if there is no such a record?

In your Joomla backend (admin panel), go to Extensions >> Manage >> Manage.

This will give you a list of all installed extensions and their respective version.

Here is an example:
