    I got the notification to Update my theme, so I did. I didn't think they'd change a lot but did. I do not like the new updated one at all and it doesn't work with my site as well as the older version. Is there a way to go back to the older version?

  2. You may be able to, depending on the theme and what they've changed.

    Which theme are you referring to?

    It's the Themolio theme, version 1.1.1.

  5. Was going to say. ;)

    If you can use SVN to pulls down the 1.1 version like so.

    cd wp-content/themes
    svn co http://themes.svn.wordpress.org/themolio/1.1/ themolio-old

    TortoiseSVN works too.

    Then edit the themolio-old/style.css and change the name from Themolio to My Rocking Old Themolio or something. ;)

    That last part is to keep it from getting updated by WordPress.

    Now activate the My Rocking Old Themolio theme in your dashboard and you'll be all set.

    Note: this might be a bad idea because sometimes theme authors do fix security exploits. But if you want to use the 1.1 version then that will do it.
