Ok, so, you’ve heard the chatter about this Gutenberg thing from WordPress for the last 6 months or so, and sometimes life just gets in the way and things can take you by surprise, but an WP update shouldn’t be one of them.

So, just in case this happened to you, don’t panic, here’s a quick guide on how you can rollback WordPress with a few simple plugins and make all the headaches of broken themes and plugins go away…

While this is just a temporary fix (as you can’t put off updating indefinitely) but this can give you and theme and plugin developers a chance to catch up and patch things to be more stable as any WP core update can potentially wreak havoc.

Anyway, here’s a quick fix:

Step 1) Download the WP Downgrade Plugin – You can find it here – https://wordpress.org/plugins/wp-downgrade/

Step 2) Install and Activate the Plugin > Then go to Settings > WP-Downgrade > then Enter the version you’d like to rollback to > for example I used 4.9.8

Step 3) Save changes and then click the link to upgrade your WP Core, then it should have the version you entered and successfully rollback changes (just like you’d update to a newer version from WP).
If you want to stop or disable auto-updates entirely, you can add this plugin from – https://wordpress.org/plugins/stops-core-theme-and-plugin-updates/

Just Download, Install and Activate Plugin > Then go to Updates Options > in sidebar > right under updates > Then click Disable Updates and Save Changes >

Problem solved.

There’s also a plugin you can use if you just want to disable the Gutenberg editor and revert to the WP classic editor that you can learn about here – https://gogutenberg.com/disable-gutenberg/

Enjoy!
