    Hi

    I’m new to Generatepress and finding my feet!

    I want to practice putting together a site and then export the theme settings/design to an existing live site. During this progress, I’ll need to export a few iterations.

    When I Export Settings (in Appearance > Generatepress) a .json file is downloaded. I was expecting a .zip file on the assumption it would work that way. This occurred with both Chrome v. 66 and Firefox 60 on a MacOS High Sierra using Generatepress 2.1.2.

    I’ve looked at some Support posts but can’t find anything specifically about this.

    Is the .json file correct? If so, how would I upload that to another WordPress site?

    If, it’s not correct. Can someone help?

    Thanks in advance.

    Chris

    Hi Chris, welcome aboard!

    a JSON file is correct, note that this is only the theme settings and not the site content.
    Once downloaded you can just use the import feature and select that file.

    If you want to move the entire site then can use one of the many WP plugins to do this, such as:

    https://en-ca.wordpress.org/plugins/duplicator/
    https://en-ca.wordpress.org/plugins/all-in-one-wp-migration/

    Just remove the license key before packaging the site and then add the license key after it has been imported.

    Thanks, David. Much appreciated.

    I was referring to just the theme settings but thanks for also outlining the site migration process (including content).

    Shortly after I raised the ticket, I did think that the JSON file was most likely correct for exporting the theme settings! Maybe I’m not as technically challenged as I thought. Haha!

    All the best!

    I hope you don’t mind if I jump in here, but I have a question regarding the Advanced setting.

    I’m quite sure I should check all the boxes to export,
    but should I check this box in advanced? — > GeneratePress Site

    I’m only wanting to export/import settings from my dev site to my live site.

    Thanks!

    Hi there,

    thats correct to export all settings, select the advanced which will expand the list and make sure all modules are checked.

    Thank you David.

    So, just to verify that this is selected too?

    Ok, glad I double checked as that was the main thing I was asking about.

    Thanks again!

    Hello,

    I’m still working with settings as I believe I’ve finally settled on Generate Press as my theme.

    Some tweaks though aren’t happening for me and wondering if you can help:

    That picture shows (with red arrows) where I’d like to have some type of border or something that differentiates each widget from the other. Just too much white space right now and I can’t see where it might be possible to change it?

    Any ideas?

    Thanks,
    Norm

    So you could add some style to the widget titles, this would give them a bottom border:

    #right-sidebar .widget-title {
        padding: 5px 0;
        border-bottom: 1px solid;
    }

    or give them a background color.

    #right-sidebar .widget-title {
        padding: 5px;
        background-color: #ddd; /* Change color to suit */
    }

    Ok great. I haven’t done much in the CSS realm, but will see if I can do it without breaking something 🙂

    Well, that works out great! I need to figure the CSS stuff out more.

    Do you have an idea how to separate posts on a category page?

    .post .inside-article {
        border-bottom: 1px solid;
    }
