How do I change to an older version of a plugin

I upgraded to the latest version of Advanced-search and found out that maxResults stopped working. All our searches now show 10 results only. I found it listed as a bug and the workaround is go back to the previous version. How do I do that? We're on Confluence 3.1

Azwan's answer is probably the simplest. Alternatively, download the specific plugin manually through your web browser from and then manually upload it to Confluence - it should overwrite the existing version. See

The advantage of this approach is that it will work even if the version you want to downgrade to is not the version that is shipped by default with your version of Confluence.

Try uninstall the plugin and restart Confluence. The bundled version should be loaded back into Confluence.
