Import the Parent Theme's Customizer Settings into your Child Theme
If you made any changes to the settings in the Customizer (Appearance > Customize) with OceanWP and you want to use a child theme, you will lose all your changes because WordPress sees your child theme as a new theme.
But don't worry, you can easily export and import the Customizer styling settings for your OceanWP theme to the child theme and vice versa. Follow these 4 simple steps to export/import your Customizer style settings.
OceanWP Customizer Styling Import and Export
- Go to your WP Dashboard, Appearance > Themes and activate the parent theme (OceanWP).
- Go to OceanWP > OceanWP Panel > Customizer > Customizer Styling Import & Export (old settings: Theme Panel > Import/Export) and click the Export button. This action will export all Customizer settings in a form of a .dat file and download to you PC.
- Go to Appearance > Themes and activate your OceanWP child theme.
- Go back to OceanWP > OceanWP Panel > Customizer > Customizer Styling Import & Export (old settings: Theme Panel > Import/Export) and Import the .dat file exported in step 2.
