It's always recommended to have a backup of your website before rolling back to a previous Divi version, as goin back to an older version could potentially cause compatibility issues or security vulnerabilities.

Here are the steps to roll back Divi to a previous version:

Step 1: Backup Your Website

  • Start by creating a full backup of your website, including both the database and all files. To do this, use a WordPress backup plugin like UpdraftPlus.

  • If you're not familiar with UpdraftPlus, you can follow this guide to learn how to create a backup using the plugin.

Step 2: Rollback to the previous version

Go to Divi > Theme Options > Updates tab and click on the "Rollback to the previous version" button.

Step 3: Version Rollback Popup

  • After clicking the rollback button, a "Version Rollback" popup will appear.

  • This popup will display information about the current version of Divi you are using and the older version of Divi that will be activated after the rollback.

  • Click on "Rollback to the previous version" and you should get a "green tick" if everything went well.

Step 4: Confirm the Theme Version

  • To confirm the theme's version, navigate to the WordPress Dashboard.

  • Click on "Appearance" in the sidebar menu and select "Themes."

  • Find the Divi theme and click on it; you will see the version number added to the theme's description.

Note: It's important to remember that rolling back to a previous version of a theme is not a recommended long-term solution. It may introduce security vulnerabilities or compatibility problems. It's best to use this method as a temporary fix until you can resolve any issues with the latest version or find alternative solutions.

By following these steps, you can successfully roll back the Divi theme to a previous version in WordPress while ensuring that you have a backup to revert to in case of any unforeseen issues.

Note: Rolling back will only be possible if you had the previous version installed on your website in the past. If you just installed Divi and didn't have a previous version before, you will not be able to roll back to a previous version.
