    Hello,
    is there a new way to change theme without using WP reset and clearing whole website? Preferably saving pages, posts ans seo plugin settings?

    Hi there,

    Not sure if I fully understand.

    WP reset is never required to switch a theme. You can simply activate a new theme that you want to use and your posts/pages and plugin settings should all be saved as they are all in the database.

    Let me know if I’m missing something here.

    Thanks,
    I was referring to a video where Tom showed how to change site layouts, and he recommended resetting wordpress with wp reset. Can’t find it right now, but I’m 100% positive it was somewhere in documentation.

    Hi there,

    WP Reset was suggested for removing a Site Library import.
    But it will remove all Posts, media etc.

    If you’re looking to remove an old site library without losing posts etc. then its a manual option of:

    1. reseting the GP settings in Appearance > GeneratePress
    2. Remove any plugins, posts, pages, media, elements, nav menus, widgets etc that the site import added.
    3. Remove CSS from Customizer > Additional CSS

    The plus side is the Importer has been updated to make this easier for any new imports you perform:
