For security reasons you should always keep your plugins fully updated but occasionally there may be a bug or quirk in an update that means you want to roll back to a previous version. Only it’s not quite as simple as you might have thought.

Never fear, though, because it’s not impossible. WPBeginner have shared a great tutorial that talks you through how to restore a previous version of a plugin with a handy step by step guide that even WordPress newcomers will be able to work through.

It’s all thanks to a helpful plugin called WP Rollback, which you can download now from the Plugin Directory. Hmm, so what happens if you want to restore this plugin to an older version?
