Where are the answers?

Hi Everybody! 

I don't want to offend, or belittle. I've been retrying to learn this after a hiatus following a long bout with frustration. 
So, I went off to take courses, in Ruby, Java, Javascript, Go, and yes, PHP. Now I'm back only to find that BCIT has replaced EllisLab. So, in the middle of a "Learning CodeIgniter 3" course on LinkedIn, no matter what I did, I could not get the session_id to stop changing, every time I redirect to a different method on the same controller.  A simple echo of the session id proved it. 

So, I make the rounds, in all the usual forums and websites looking for an answer; and as with everything else in this business. 
Ask a question, and get hundreds of different answers, that don't seem to work, strewn across years of aging posts dating back to the day after version 1 was released.

So the question is this... WHERE IS THE ONE PLACE WHERE TO GET ONE RIGHT ANSWER TO A QUESTION ABOUT THE CURRENT VERSION OF CODEIGNITER?  That's my generic question. I'm sure the answer will assist me with all of the specific questions I'll ask when I get an answer to that one.  Please don't point to the User Guide.  I find that the User Guide, although a valid effort, leads me to more questions than answers for lack of in-depth explanations (in English).

Thank you, thank you, thank you. You guys are great. I hope to be able to give back one day.   Heart

You have reached the fountain of wisdom, young padawan. Or should I say "older", given that your handle implies age beyond PHP?

The current version of CodeIgniter is 3.1.8, evidenced by https://www.codeigniter.com/download

The next version, CodeIgniter 4, is under development. It bears little resemblance to programming languages of the distant past, although we have heard of them in academia. You have but to ask your question(s) to be enlightened.

No disrepect intended ... actually, I am trying to mimic your tone Undecided

Actually Kemosabe, I wasn asking what the current version of Codeigniter is, but rather any hypothetical question concerning the current version.
I sometimes get lazy expressing myself, and fail to do so.

No offense taken, I'm a died in the wool pragmatic cynic, and I do often come off offensive, unintentionally.

This forum is the intended fountain of knowledge about the current (and sometimes past and future) versions of CodeIgniter.
There is a slack channel, https://codeigniterchat.slack.com/, which might provide more immediacy, but this forum is the intended main support vehicle.

The latest news / updates can always be inferred from the repos, https://github.com/bcit-ci/CodeIgniter for CodeIgniter 3, and https://github.com/bcit-ci/CodeIgniter4 for CodeIgniter 4.

Hope this helps.
