Support » Fixing WordPress » Revert back to a previously published version of website

  • I recently made some changes to the post section of my website which is located on my Home page. Soon thereafter I noticed that one of the features on my Home page was no longer working (a submenu would drop down on mouse over). I can trace it back directly to the date I made the changes to the post. Is there a way for me to go back to a date prior to when this problem occurred and revert or recall that version?

    What kind of changes did you make? It sounds like you changed a little more than just the content of 1 post.


    You can download previously released version of wordpress here:

    You need to install it manually on your blog.

    Initially I just tried to edit one of the current posts. However, when I tried to update the permalink to match the title of the new post, it disappeared. I figured the best thing to do was just start fresh with a new post. This worked fine so I decided to delete the remaining posts so I could replace them with new information (the posts serve as a news/updates section on my website). I believe it was after I deleted all of these posts and left only the new one I created that the problem started.

    Downloading and installing a different version of WordPress will solve this issue? Will all of the content and functionailty of the web page be maintained? I guess I am wondering how installing another version will allow me to regain the functionality I lost. I thought maybe you could do the same thing with WordPress that you can do with computers in which you have a restore point that takes you back to a time when everything was working properly.

    If the only thing you did was added 1 post and removed some others, then it sounds like there’s a markup issue in the new post. Or a markup issue in the theme that was being hidden by the old posts. A link to the relevant page on your site might help to confirm this.

    Here is the link to the page When mousing over any of the pictures there should be a drop down menu that appears.

    Thank you for your help.
