Import the Parent Theme's Customizer Settings into your Child Theme

If you have edited the settings in the customizer with OceanWP and you want to use a child theme, you will lose all your changes because WordPress see your child theme as a new theme. Follow these simple steps to get all the settings for your child theme.

1
Go to Appearance > Themes and activate the parent theme so OceanWP.
2
Go to Theme Panel > Import/Export and click the Export Settings button, that will export all your customizer settings into a JSON file.
3
Go to Appearance > Themes and activate your child theme.
4
Go back to Theme Panel > Import/Export and import the JSON file exported in step 2.

That all! All your parent theme settings will be in your child theme.
