    Hi!
    I installed GP in one of my blogs, but then I changed it for another template (not GP) because it did not convinced me at that time. And when I installed it, I used one of the Site Library themes (not the default one).

    Now that I want to go back to GP, when I install it automatically appears the last configuration I had (with the theme that I don’t like) and I really don’t want to install it and make all the changes will my site is live (go to Site Library > Change template and so).

    Is there a way I can reset the default GP configuration with the default theme when I install it?
    Hope I explain myself!

    …”and I really don’t want to install it and make all the changes WHILE (not will) my site is live (go to Site Library > Change template and so)”.

    Hi there,

    I’m not 100% sure if understand.

    But you can reset the customizer settings in Appearance > GeneratePress:

    Does that help at all?

    Let me know πŸ™‚

    Ok, but I have that option when GP is install. I dont want to go through all those steps to reset GP, because I have to configure all while my site is getting traffic.

    The first time I install GP, I used SIDER template from the Site Library. Then I deleted GP and installed other theme. Now that I want to use GP, when I install it on my wordpress, the template that appears is SIDER, not the default one. I dont want to Activate GP and then go through all the reset steps so I can configure all over again. It would be easier if I install it and then I can make all changes before activating GP, using the default template that appears the first time I install GP.

    Hi there,

    best thing to do is to install a Maintenance Mode plugin to take the site ‘offline’ temporarily. Then makes those changes.

    The alternative is to check if your Host provides a Staging environment, where you can make those changes on a staging site and when happy commit the changes to the live site.
