How do I downgrade to a lower version? (3 posts)

    I've had nothing but problems with 2.0.2. I can't get a space to appear between paragraphs and images won't show. I'm not using the fancy editor or any plugins. Where do I find a lower version without all these bugs? And once I find it, how do you down grade? Is it just a matter of uploading the old version of the files? I hate to have to do this, but the blog is unusable as it is.

    I can't tell much without looking at your site, but...

    I can't get a space to appear between paragraphs
    Usually just CSS issue. Show us your site and we'll fix it.

    and images won't show
    It could be CSS, could be your using the_excerpt instead of the_content template tag,...

    I find it, how do you down grade? Is it just a matter of uploading the old version of the files?
    It's a risky to do this as the database schema may have change. There was a "WP downgrader" plugin if you want to search but I strongly suggest that you let us help fix your problem with 2.0.2

    I hadn't thought of a CSS thing causing the paragraph problem, but does sound reasonable. I'll check that tomorrow (getting too late here now)

    The images though - what is " the_excerpt instead of the_content template tag"? I should maybe clarify the problem, its when I try putting images in a post, they don't show up. I just looked at the source code though and the img tag looks fine. After I've had some sleep I'll look again and see if I see anything wrong, like the file path to the image or anything.

    Thanks - maybe I over reacted - I'll see if I can fix it before installing an older version.
