    So I was building a new website and everything was going according to plan. It wasn't until I got down to the
    very end that I discovered that the new WordPress version was causing a bug with my theme. Since I have a
    lot of time into this project I needed a quick solution.

    You can easily downgrade your WordPress installation in just 5-7 minutes and completely fix conflicts. Some of
    you may already know this but for someone who doesn't mess with the tech end much it was a life saver.



    I obviously don't own that video and credit goes to the owner, but it explained everything really well and I thought I
    might as well share it here just in-case someone has this very issue.

    Cheers

    True, but while you are waiting for an updated version its nice to have the website
    fixed for now. Installing WordFence is a step in the right direction for security issues.

    A lot of people are not running the latest versions anyway. Really WP is not that safe
    unless you do some folder editing and plugin installing.
