WP Rollback Provides Basic Versioning for WordPress.org Plugins and Themes


Despite the recent proliferation of plugins that add git-based version control to WordPress, your average user does not require a full-blown version control system as part of regular site management. Developers can certainly benefit from tools like Revisr and Gitium for managing projects with Git, but the vast majority of WordPress users are more likely to benefit from a simple “undo” button for mistakes or bad updates.

WP Rollback is a new plugin that brings the concept of an “undo” button to updates for plugins and themes hosted on WordPress.org. It allows users to easily rollback to any previous (or newer) version without the hassle of manually downloading files.

Clicking the Rollback link will take the user to a screen where he can select from a list of previous versions or update to newer ones.

WP Rollback uses WordPress’ native plugin updater to revert to previous versions.
