    Hi,

    Previously it was easy to access older versions of a plugin from wordpress.org. For each plugin, there was a Developers tab that allowed you to download older versions of the plugin, as here.

    This tab seems to have been removed. How can I download older versions of a plugin now?

    Thanks!

  • Yes, I miss the Developers tab too. I have no idea why they got rid of it. The only workaround I’m aware of is to figure out the version of the plugin you want to download, and then compose the URL as follows:

    
    https://downloads.wordpress.org/plugin/plugin-name.X.X.X.zip
    

    You have to replace “plugin-name” with the name of the plugin you want to download, using the link to download the current version to get the name the developer used, and replace the “X.X.X” with the version number you want to download.

    Thanks, got it!
