Hi there newbie here!
I hadn’t been to my site in awhile. I updated all the plugins including updating to wooCommerce 3.1.12, and then I saw this message:
Symbiostock requires WooCommerce 3.0.7 to run. You are currently running a different version (3.1.2) and may experience unknown quirks as a result. Please install WooCommerce 3.0.7. If your current version is higher than 3.0.7, please refer to this guide on downgrading. Click here to ignore this warning.
I don’t understand how to downgrade. I am not technical. How do I do this?
Also, I copied the Status Report it told me to for support. Here it is. Thank you for the help!

Thank you for the response Robin. Okay great! I’ll do some testing.
I’m curious. Why does that warning message from WP show up then?September 13, 2017 at 8:52 pm #31379
It shows up because when we release a new version of Symbiostock we do thorough testing with the current version of WooCommerce. As WooCommerce updates on its own schedule, we can’t predict if future updates may break some aspect of how Symbiostock interacts with it. So we warn people that if you upgrade your WooCommerce version it “could” introduce issues.
However as we released the latest version very recently, and as of late WooCommerce hasn’t really released massive changes to their backend, the chances of there being a problem are not that great. Nevertheless, it is strongly recommended not to upgrade WooCommerce, and to enable the disabling of the update prompt via your Symbiostock settings to prevent exactly what happened with you from happening.
Also, generally WooCommerce updates do not improve the average store in any real way (stores running on WooCommerce 2.5.5 will likely operate exactly as fast as ones with the latest version) so there is no real reason to take that risk unless you need a new functionality introduced in a new version of WooCommerce.September 14, 2017 at 4:20 pm #31385
Ahhh okay. That’s a lot of information. I understand better now. Thank you for helping to clarify Robin.
