How to Rollback WordPress Plugins (Version Control for Beginners)
Veronica Meyer

This is a great tip. I wasn’t aware of the WP Rollback plugin but I am constantly frustrated by plugin or theme updates that break my client’s sites. Ultimately, I want to fix those breaks so that I can keep a given WordPress site fully up to date but I don’t always have time to fix them and rolling back is a good option. Another challenge of maintaining our client’s sites is even KNOWING when a plugin breaks something. This service visually monitors your site or sites and alerts you if some type of update substantially changes your site

While it’s considered best practice to always keep your WordPress plugins and themes updated, we understand there are times you may need to quickly revert to a previous version. This plugin makes that process as easy as a few mouse clicks. Simply select the version of the plugin or theme that you’d like to rollback to, confirm, and in a few moments you’ll be using the version requested. No more fumbling to find the version, downloading, unzipping, FTPing, learning Subversion or hair pulling.
