Display Confluence version in footer


The footer on my page says "Powered by Atlassian Confluence", but doesn't tell me which version I'm running. Although there is a lot of documentation available for Confluence, without knowing what version I'm on it's hard to know which doco I should be referring to.

I've seen the version displayed in the footer on other sites - is this hardcoded into the template or is there automated functionality that I can drop in to display version information?

You can add $generalUtil.versionNumber in the Main Layout (Confluence Admin > Layouts). By default, it's actually included in <confluence-install>/confluence/decorators/includes/footer-content.vm
