We’ve been asked recently about ways to backup a website and restore previous versions of the site after a user error. Below is a list of 4 plugins that we feel will help with these problems.

As with all plugins, please check the compatibility of the plugin with your version of website before installing. We would also recommend backing up your website before proceeding (one of our suggestions should make this a little easier in the future).


1. Easy Updates Manager

Automate specific WordPress updates

This one is something you should monitor but it could potentially save you some time.
Settings can be adjusted to only automatically update specific plugins or themes.

2. Simple History

Keep track of your user activity

This is a great plugin for logging user activity throughout the WordPress admin.
This means that you can easily identify who has edited a particular page, and when they did this.

No more arguments in the office.

3. Updraft Plus WordPress Backup Plugin

Consistent backups easily setup

This plugin gives you peace of mind when it comes to backing up and restoring your website.

4. WP Rollback

Easily rollback supported plugins to a previous working version

You may sometimes encounter problems with a plugin that hasn’t quite updated correctly.
WP Rollback allows you to roll these back to a previous working version.

We hope the plugins listed help to make the updating, backing-up and logging process of your WordPress website much easier. If you know someone struggling with these, why not share this with them? If you’d like assistance with anything else WordPress, please don’t hesitate to get in touch!

We felt Urban Feather could come up with a design for our website that could set us apart from our competitors locally. They took on the brief and designed us a website that we are very happy with, simple but to the point, utilising plenty of our imagery to showcase our work.

We would happily recommend them to others looking for a Web Designer.
