What version of MindTouch am I using?

Check the control panel

If you are a site administrator, you can determine your version through the MindTouch control panel.  Depending on your version, access the control panel under the Site tools or Tools menu.

If you do not see a link to the control panel, you may not have administrative rights and should ask the site owner.
