    I just upgraded to WP3.1 on a bunch of blogs (these are just used to redirect traffic so SEO and content is not important at all) and some of my plugins have stopped working.

    How do I go back to WP 2.9 or start new blogs with 2.9?

    It doesn't matter if I lose all the content.

    fantastico deluxe uploads 3.1 automatically.

    Willing to donate $20 if someone can point me in the right direction...

    Thanks!

    you will need to upload it manually, not via Fantastico, try to backup all wp site folder, then upload WP 2.9.

    Sorry to be a pain.... but I've only used Fantastico and do not know how to upload another way. Every search I do ALWAYS points me towards Fantastico tutorials. I just want to do a fresh WP install without Fantastico. What do I search for for a non Fantastico tutorial?

    Thanks for your help :)

    You can simply search for "how to upload wordpress ftp" on google or simply contact you host to backup everything for the day before the upgrade

    You need to upload the files via an FTP program. Then create a new MySQL database. Then re-install wordpress.

    If you would like to hire me to do this for you, shoot me a PM.
