    I use the Mantra theme by Cryout Creations and their latest version completely messed up my site. They are not returning blog posts or email inquiries so I want to return to a previous version of the theme until the issues are resolved. How do I do this from my dashboard on WordPress? Is this possible. Here is the link to the previous version.

    You can't. You need to do this via FTP

    Download the old version to your computer.

    Via FTP, change the name of the current Mantra theme folder from "mantra" to something else, such as "mantra-new".

    Via FTP, upload the "mantra" folder from the old theme folder on your computer.

    Just want to say I've had really wonderful support from Cryout. They offer a forum for free support and request a small donation to provide very good personal support. My site was messed up when the very old version of Mantra I was using didn't play well with the new WP version. Because I'd customized the heck out of it before I learned about child themes, #cautionary tale, I couldn't just upgrade. Cryout went in and did a custom fix for me.
