Support » Plugin: Staffer » Custom Styling Gone with new version

  • Since v 2+, I have also lost all the custom styling I had created for my staff pages (both the singular staff pages and the archive pages), please allow users to rollback to version version 1.3.3 or create an option in version 2+ to continue to use archive-staff.php and single-staff.php as they had formerly existed. Please put the zip for version 1.3.3 in the WP dev repo for Staffer.

    Here is a script you can use to recover your custom CSS. You can then use a Custom CSS plugin to output that CSS:


    1) Save and upload that PHP file to the root of your Web directory, or whichever directory WP is installed in.
    2) Visit the file URL in your browser. If the file name is staffer-styles.php, the URL will be
    3) Copy the outputted CSS and retain.
    4) Delete the file from your server.

    Regarding having access to the old version of Staffer: It’s coming soon.

    Hi Edward,

    I can retrieve the custom CSS as it is in my child theme. What I meant is that the update to v2 has rendered my styles useless since it is no longer using the two templates that you had made as an integral part of the Staffer plugin to display Staff (pre v2). It seems that your new version of Staffer should be a different plugin altogether if it cannot maintain fundamental backward compatibility and the permalink structure of staff created by the pre-v2 users. At the very least version 2 should have come with a warning that installing it could seriously impact functionality and appearance for those who have been using the pre v2 Staffer plugin.

    When will we have access to the old version of Staffer?

    Where will it be posted?

    Will rolling back work properly?

    Can we expect that the old version will continue to be secure and compatible with current versions of WordPress?

    I’d appreciate your answering these questions thoroughly.

    Thank you.

    It is a top-bottom rebuild, so it’s not meant to be backwards-compatible. There is a notice upon upgrade of this. You can download the old version here:

    I would not anticipate any security issues with the old version — compatibility with future versions of WordPress however, is up in the air.
