UPDATE - Wordpress 5.5 release has broken our search.

Recommended Posts

We have solved the WP 5.5 problem now and have a new maintenance release forthcoming this Thursday Aug 20th -

Please note = there will be a single edit required for anyone who is using our home page quick search and instructions and video will be coming with the new release.


It has been brought to our attention that the latest Wordpress 5.5 release has broken our Search form submit that would normally take the customer to our Search-Results page - but for some reason its bouncing back to the search page again - If this is critical to your site working then either Do Not Update to 5,.5 yet or if you already have and would like to restore wordpress to 5.4 then this is how to proceed.

NOTE: We are working on a maintenance release today and will post updates and release time ETA.

This is a free easy to use plugin and as you can read from the reviews 5.5 has caused all sorts of problems for customers websites - 

If you want to install this plugin then within wordpress you need to copy this into the search for plugin "wp-downgrade"  and then download and activate the plugin and follow its instructions.

Much easier than a manual downgrade. Also saved my skin after updating to 5.5 and breaking core components, this has give me more time for testing.

Thank god for this plugin! After upgrading to WordPress 5.5 my website was a mess, obviously, Elementor hasn't yet sorted all of their bugs with this latest WordPress upgrade fiasco! Installed this plugin and rolled back to WordPress Version 5.4.2 - all working again. I Will upgrade to WordPress 5.5 after a couple of weeks - so plugin and theme developers can ironed out their bugs first!
