    Hi – apologies if this is obvious, have only just started using GP but couldn’t find an answer…

    So – I see there’s a way of exporting and importing settings.

    We’re looking at using GP in a multisite environment – so my question is, is there any way of these settings being in place by default when a new site is launched?

    I guess the analogous example would be the way Advanced Custom Fields has an acf-sync folder which contains options that the plugin looks at – means we can not only set defaults but also push these into source control.

    Thanks!

    Hi Mike,

    All of our defaults are filterable, so you can create a network-active plugin which adds your defaults to new sites.

    This file has a lot of the defaults: https://github.com/tomusborne/generatepress/blob/2.3.2/inc/defaults.php

    So for example, if we wanted to target generate_option_defaults, we could do this:

    add_filter( 'generate_option_defaults', function( $defaults ) {
        $defaults['container_width'] = '1500';
        $defaults['layout_setting'] = 'left-sidebar';
    
        return $defaults;
    } );

    Unfortunately, we haven’t documented all of the available for each option as of right now. I’ll see if we can get that done ASAP.

    Let me know if you need more info 🙂

    Thanks Tom, useful.

    So is it a case of setting up a site, exporting the settings and then manually writing the filters into a plugin? Or is there a way of going from the export file to code in some way?

    Right now it’s a manual process, which sucks. I’ve made a note to play with a method to do it automatically, as that would be awesome.

    Thanks Tom, much appreciate your quick and candid answers 🙂

    The way that ACF does it is really cool – you may want to take a look there for reference:

    https://www.advancedcustomfields.com/resources/synchronized-json/

    In particular what we like about it is being able to bring ACF settings into source control – but it also means that in scenarios like the multisite one I outline above you can easily edit / set defaults.

    cheers
