    I want to switch to an elementor based template from the site library, but am worried it will delete all of my current elementor pages that I’ve designed/put content in.

    If I do remove a site template and import another, how does that affect my current pages/posts/content?

    Hi there,

    Your current pages/posts/content should remain untouched. The importer only adds new content – it tries not to touch existing content.

    However, it’s easy enough to do a full site backup that you should definitely do one, just in case. It only takes a minute and should save a lot of frustration in case there is some sort of incompatibility somehow.

    Thank you so much 🙂

    What is the best way to do a quick backup of the site?

    Hi there,

    most hosting companies provide a backup option – which would be the easiest option.
    Might also be worth seeing if they provide a Staging site option, this will allow you to make changes to a ‘duplicate’ of your site before pushing those changes to the live site.
