    Hello again!

    Is there a way to downgrade safely for Avada Theme.
    Knowledge base has nothing for “downgrade” and i cannot seem to be able to find a proper tutorial or help page.

    Avada is updating internal plugins (fusion core, fusion builder) and furthermore uses also an internal patcher, which all escape my backup plugin’s monitoring mechanism for rolling back and keeping track.

    I have no clue what is changed and how i can roll back. Does the Avada folder in themes and the fusion-core / fusion-builder folder in plugins suffice to rollback into a previous version?

    Simply set: How can i rollback to previous version (not major one) for the Avada theme.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!
    Thank you

    Avada DOES NOT AUTOUPDATE ANYTHING ON YOUR SITE. If you’re seeing something on your site that updated without you initiating the update (not just an update available notice), check your cPanel settings, backup plugin, or WP management plugin. To answer your specific rollback question – steps are pretty straight forward:

    1) Change the active theme setting in WP>Appearance to one of the WP defaults,
    2) DELETE (NOT RENAME!) the Avada folder from ~/wp-content/themes/ and the matching required Avada plugins (fusion-core & fusion-builder) from ~/wp-content/plugins.
    3) Reinstall the earlier version of the Avada theme in the theme folder,
    4) Activate it through the WP dashboard (WP>Appearance),
    5) Reinstall the required plugins from the WP>Avada>Plugins page
    6) Install the patches from WP>Avada>Patches
    NOTE: Don’t forget to clear all caches post rollback (server, site, and browser) after you’ve completed the above. Steps tested on our dev server from v5.5.1 back to v5.1.6, running WP v4.9.6.

    Whatever your reason for wanting to do a rollback, long term it’s better to fix the problem then roll back to an earlier version. Avada Support really will help and respond quickly, plus if it is a problem on their side it gets documented… and fixed.

    Thank you very much for your feedback!
    That is exactly what I was looking for.
