I have a Live Site with GPP which already have content and design include css.
And I have a test site, where I work on a new design.
If the design is ready, I want to put the design on the live site.
GP has the option to export and import, so I guess I have to use this to transfer the design.
But what about the custom css? Do I have to delete the old custom css on the live site and copy the new css manually?
Or is this part of the export and import process?July 13, 2019 at 8:00 am #956874DavidStaffCustomer Support
the import / export option in GP only transfers the Theme Customizer Settings, no content and no Additional CSS. So you can import the settings and manually cut and paste the CSS into the other site.July 13, 2019 at 11:00 am #956992Sonja
Hi David, thanks, now I know.
So the import/export works differently as importing a site from the site library, because there css is importing.July 13, 2019 at 11:09 am #956993DavidStaffCustomer Support
The Site Library is like you importing an entire site using a plugin like Duplicator or All in One Migration. It installs theme settings ( what the GP Export/Import does), plugins, content ( posts, pages, media, elements ), menus and widgets and Additional CSS inside the customizer.
So the GP Import / Export function is only for the theme customizer settings nothing more.July 13, 2019 at 11:19 am #956997Sonja
Thanks for explanation, David.July 13, 2019 at 11:22 am #957000DavidStaffCustomer SupportNovember 13, 2019 at 1:13 am #1061440Harm
There is a slight nuisance with the export/import settings feature.
The path to graphics (logo) is json-stored in fully-qualified form.
This gives problems when importing later on to another domain.
When exporting from DEV.myperfectsite.com and subsequently importing into http://WWW.myperfectsite.com, the graphics cannot be found.
I had to edit the exported json before I imported it.
In my example above, “”DEV” had to become “WWW”.
A little inconvenient because I could not see my mobile logo…. at first.
I do not think the fully qualified filename is neccessary, relative from site-root seems enough.

Thanks for the feedback! Definitely an issue we need to address. Our next release is coming next week, so it will need to wait until GPP 1.10, unfortunately.
I’ll get it done 🙂November 14, 2019 at 12:48 am #1062688Harm
Thank you Tom for your swift reaction.
GP(P) Is a good product.
Hope to see GPP 1.10 soon.
