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 🙂October 29, 2016 at 6:58 am #239846Jay Martin
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. 😉
Love your products, Tom. Kudos.October 29, 2016 at 10:34 am #239889TomLead DeveloperLead Developer
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 😉
I’m working on it 🙂October 29, 2016 at 10:36 am #239890Jay Martin
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.October 29, 2016 at 10:38 am #239892TomLead DeveloperLead DeveloperNovember 1, 2016 at 5:04 am #240744John
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 🙂November 1, 2016 at 2:23 pm #240887Diego
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_nNovember 1, 2016 at 7:48 pm #240962TomLead DeveloperLead DeveloperNovember 29, 2016 at 9:33 pm #249564Karim

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/April 29, 2017 at 7:03 pm #312097TomLead DeveloperLead Developer
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.December 17, 2017 at 11:26 am #451551sparkle
i would also like to see this ability.
