    Hi

    Not sure if I am understanding import/export
    Is there one click button somewhere to backup all GP settings?

    Or do I have to click on all 7 “export buttons” and “save copyrigh”t creating 8 file to backup all of GP

    If there is not one click button any chance of this in the future ?

    Because all of these options are in different option rows, there’s no one button currently.

    I’ll definitely look out for a solution ๐Ÿ™‚

    I would like to second the motion of adding a One-Click capability to export/import settings. Perhaps I am doing things wrong (or inefficiently), but I frequently find myself having to export an entire site’s GP settings from one site to multiple sites as a means of maintaining visual consistency.

    Hopefully such a One-Click feature would not be too much effort. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Love your products, Tom. Kudos.

    Each add-on has their own DB entry, which is what makes it very difficult.

    Implementing a one-click import/export would mean moving all of the options into one entry, which would be nice – but is very scary from a developer standpoint. That would be a stressful update ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I’m working on it ๐Ÿ™‚

    We appreciate your continuing efforts, Tom!

    This may seem like an oversimplified solution, but at least for just “export”, can’t you simply effect the clicking of each of the buttons? The net result would be that all N files would be created using the default names, in which the user would specify that target directory.

    Similarly, for “import”, have the user specify the target directory containing all the relevant files having the default names.

    Just a thought.

    Interesting thought – thank you! I’ll play with it ๐Ÿ™‚

    Hi Tom,
    I’m also missing the one click import/export. In my opinion, it would be better if all settings would be in one DB entry, but every theme would have own DB entry so if you switch between themes the current theme would not inherit settings from other. Thank you for all your effort making GP better.

    I agree. Something I wish I thought of before releasing initially. Now it’s much harder to switch to one DB entry, but I’m working on it ๐Ÿ™‚

    Maybe the one click export button exports all the installed plugins options into separate files but gziped into a single file and then the one click import checks the files inside the gzip file and imports them into the correct place? just an idea n_n

    About to do this from a dev site to live site (client doesn’t want to clone…)

    Is there any reason this plugin wouldn’t do the job? https://wordpress.org/plugins/customizer-export-import/

    It might, however I *think* it only works with theme_mods. GP uses get_option so that the premium plugins and blank child themes can share the options with the parent theme.

    i would also like to see this ability.
