Posted OnMay 14, 2014     CategoryThemes     CommentsNo comment

In this section of the guide, we will take a look at how to Import and Export Settings files to and from your Genesis Framework enabled website.

Step 1) Login to the WordPress Dashboard.

Step 2) The Import/Export section is extremely useful, as it enables people who are using the Genesis Framework to create files for their settings, which they in turn can import directly into another Genesis enabled website. NB: These settings will not work with any other WordPress Theme, only Genesis!

Step 3) Head to the Dashboard, and choose Import/Export? on the Genesis options.

Step 4) Tick the boxes for Theme Settings and SEO Settings and hit Download Export File to create and download a file for both (or just one) of these settings.


Step 4) When you have created settings files, you can then upload them directly to another installation by hitting Choose File, choosing the settings files saved to your computer and then hit Upload File and Import. All your settings will be updated to your site without you having to go through them all again.


The next step of the guide will focus on the Genesis Framework: Theme SEO Settings on New Posts.
