    I was thinking about creating my own library of modules, e.g. a specific menu one, a footer one, etc. Is it possible to import multiple json files? I have not figured out how I could do it.

    Thank you.

    Hi there,

    You can import multiple JSON files for the theme options in “Appearance > GeneratePress”.

    Things like menus etc.. are handled by WordPress. I think you can export/import them in “Tools > Export”.

    Let me know if you need more info 🙂

    Hi Tom,

    sorry if I’m being thick but under Appearance > GeneratePress > Import Settings, I can only import one file, it doesn’t allow me to select multiple files – and if I import one file and then import another one, the second one overwrites the first one.

    So each file has the same settings? Not too sure I understand quite yet.

    Are you wanting to import settings only for specific elements? For example, your footer configuration in the Customizer? Then import another file for your header configuration?

    Yes, I was hoping to have an individual file for individual setting, e.g. one file for a specific header configuration, one file for a specific footer configuration. So I would create my own library of different pre-configured headers and footers and sidebars, etc.

    In that case, you would likely need to write your own import/export functions, as the GP one does things module by module.

    I did some searching around for a plugin that would allow you to pick and choose which options get exported, but I couldn’t find one, unfortunately.

    Thank you Tom,

    I think it would be a great feature, being able to upload multiple configurations, allowing the user to create their own library to use – something like what page builders do with various elements, only using GP. Is that something you would consider adding at some point?

    I might as well try to write the function and put it into a plugin for now.

    If I do, I’ll let you know.

    I agree – I’ll look into this 🙂
