Import & Export Customizer Options

This week we are pushing a myriad of updates across the board, including adding support for importing theme Customizer settings.

Located inside the /customizer folder within each theme’s package contents, you’ll find a [theme_name]-export.dat file. This file contains the theme’s live demo Customizer options.

To import these options and set up your Customizer like the demo, first install and activate the Customizer Export/Import WordPress plugin, which is available as a free download. After you are successfully running the plugin, head to your Theme Customizer and look for the Export/Import section – which is probably located at the bottom.

Remember that [theme_name]-export.dat file?

Add that file into the uploader within the Export/Import section of the Theme Customizer and press the “Import” button.
