Determine Your Version of SMT

You can determine which version of SMT is enabled by inspecting the admin URL. The admin URL is displayed in the browser’s address bar when you are logged in to SMT. In the following URL, the number between /cms/ and /admin/ is 3. This indicates SMT version 3 is enabled on the site. If SMT version 2 is enabled on the site, then this number would be 2.
