Support » Installing WordPress » Can I return to prev ver after i install 2.0 if I don’t like it?

  • I’ve installed the new latest 2.0 and I don’t like it. It just doesn’t work for me. Can I put back my old files now and everything work?

    I seem to remember the new ver made me “update your database” .

    Please help!

  • You will also have to replace your database (due to running upgrade.php from 1.5.2 >> 2.0). The easiest way is to use the last db backup taken before you upgraded. Alternativly is the database downgrader. Make sure you backup your 2.0 database and files first incase anything goes wrong.

    Just out of interest, what is it you don’t like about 2.0? There are a couple of plugins that can somewhat restore the 1.5x appearance/functionality:
    Admin revert” and
    Old style upload
    You can loose the uploader via changing the wp-admin.css file:
    #uploading {
    border-style: none;
    padding: 0px;
    margin-bottom: 16px;
    height: 15em;
    width: 100%;
    /* overflow-y: hidden;*/

    #uploading {
    display: none;

    Well, the things I don’t like are the new WYSIWYG editor for entries. I’m a coding person. That thing drives me nuts. And the Quick link that I use to add new blogs to my link categories now doesn’t work right. It also won’t seem to remember me anymore and makes me sign back in everytime I visit my blog. Thanks for the admin revert link. I’ll try that.

    The not remembering thing is a bug in w-login.php. There is a fix here:
    And the editor can be turned off via options which reverts it to the older quicktags.

    I tried unchecking the box that says users MUST by default use the new fancy write screen. It doesn’t work. The thing comes up anyway. GRRRRRRRRRRR.

    Try admin > Users > Your profile > left bottom corner – uncheck.

    I would advise caution re the Admin Revert plugin–it reverted more then I want, and at the moment I’m trying to get it back. But the plugin’s been disabled and removed from the folder, the cache has been deleted, and still I feel its powerful effects on my Write Post and Write Page pages. Not sure where else…
