Preguntas frecuentes

¿Es seguro usar este plugin?

Respuesta corta: Sí. Respuesta larga: depende de cómo lo uses.

WP Rollback is completely safe because all it does is take publicly available versions of the plugins you already have on your site and install the version that you designate. There is no other kinds of trickery or fancy offsite calls or anything. BUT!!!

Safety largely depends on you. The WordPress website admin. We absolutely do NOT recommend rolling back any plugins or themes on a live site. Test the rollback locally first, have backups, use all the best practice tools available to you. This is intended to make rolling back easier, that’s all.

Why isn’t there a rollback button next to X plugin or theme?

WP Rollback only works with plugins or themes installed from the WordPress Repository. If you don’t see the rollback link, then most likely that plugin or theme is not found on WordPress.org. This plugin does not support plugins from GitHub, ThemeForest, or other sources other than the WordPress.org Repo.

I rolled my [insert plugin name] back to version X.X and now my site is broken. This is your fault.

No. Te advertimos en letra negrita varias veces en muchos lugares. Y nuestro plugin hizo exactamente lo que dijo que haría. Que los dioses de internet se compadezcan del alma de tu sitio roto.

¿Dónde está ubicada la documentación completa?

La documentación de este plugin se encuentra en nuestra Wiki de Github. Aquí es donde hacemos actualizaciones periódicas.

¿Este plugin se puede traducir?

Yes! All strings are internationalized and ready to be translated. Simply use the languages/wp-rollback.pot file and your favorite translation tool. Once finished, please reach out to us on the WordPress.org forums or better yet, submit a pull request on the GitHub Repo.

Didn’t know about this plugin until a well known plugin developer screwd up with a update.Saved me some embarrassment as I could roll back to an earlier version.

When you need a quick rollback because, for example, a plugin crashes all your whole site and you can’t figure out what’s happening… and the developer releases an update without testing (and don’t responded your replies -I hate it-).THIS is the plugin that will save your day, you can «go back in time» to when everything was working OK.Thanks and keep improving, we will need it.

Amazing!!! I suddenly couldn’t edit the site on a new computer and could not figure out for solid hour why nothing was working. After disabling a bunch of plugins with no success and tried a similar rollback plugin, found this, and BAM! Gave me the option and see a ton of archived plug version which I found out was the culprit. THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!!!
