How To Downgrade WordPress To Earlier Version –

If you have updated your wordpress to the latest version and found that your theme and/or plugins are now causing your site nothing but problems, then you can easily downgrade your wordpress to an earlier release version.

This video shows you step by step how to take your website from a new version of wordpress back to the previous version (and earlier if that is your fancy).

I created this video to help those OptimizePress 2 users who found wordpress 3.6 killed their functionality of their theme and plugin. Using the above method for your website can step back from these issues until theme and plugin designers have the chance to upgrade for compatibility reasons.

      Holy shit. Updated wordpress to 4.5 last night and found out this morning my website format was jacked up because my theme is no longer supported. Used your tutorial and fixed it and I know nothing about computers. Used Transmit and followed your directions and my website is fixed. You are the man. Thanks a lot for making this video Andrew.
