    My theme seems to have some issues in the admin panel with the wp 3.5 version. is there a way to use a older version of wp?

    Yes (I think, but I'm not sure) ! It's at you own risk !
    I tell that because
    1) It's not sure that your database will adapt itself to cancel the changes made by WP 3.5
    2) you should find out what is the issue rather than downgrade WordPress. Simply because perhaps you will be faced with other security problems later.

    If you want to downgrade anyway :

    - Make a backup of your database and your web server (files)

    - Go here WordPress Release Archive and download the previous version of WordPress (3.4.2)

    - Upload the WordPress 3.4.2 decompressed files in the relevant folders (in www\, in wp-admin ; in wp-content ; in wp-includes)

    You must restore a pre-upgrade database backup if you want to roll-back to your previous version of WordPress.

    That's what I thought.
    It's good to know that, even for me.
