Did you just update WordPress to a new version without making a backup, thinking "it's only a small incremental update, what could happen...", and without warning the site/shop is suddenly totally bugged out because of a plugin(likely an important plugin that you need to have active for the site/shop to work) conflict with a function in the new Wordpress version? 😱 Yeah, just been there, done that. This plugin will save your life! Get it NOW!

Thanks for such a useful plugin. Solved a problem YooTheme conflict with WP 6. WP Downgrade quickly got the site to WP 5.9.3, and we're back to editing the site. I bet this plugin solves problems like this for a lot of people.
