Import and export your widgets.
Exported and imported my plugins just fine.
Been looking for a plugin like this for a while. Thank you for creating it :-)
Was looking for a way to get around this limitation I found myself in. I had created numerous custom sidebars using the WPMUDEV Custom sidebars plugin and when updating to a newer version of my site theme I had lost all the sidebars. Well not lost, they were actually marked as inactive widgets. It would take a very very very long time to manually drag all the widgets back into the custom sidebars I had created. After kicking off the new theme I simply ran the import and voila, all my custom widgets were back into their custom sidebars!
I had an issue with the seemingly more popular: http://wordpress.org/plugins/widget-settings-importexport/
It simply didn't work every time so I ditched that and tried this widget. It works like a charm and now my customers can import sample widgets for their themes. Great job developers.
I've used a couple other plugins to do this and so far this is easily the best of the bunch.
Powerful and easy to run, Widget Importer & Exporter is a really necessary plugin when it comes time to export or import widget settings.
This plugin does a good job of filling in some of WordPress' shortcomings when it comes to exporting/importing content. Thanks Steve!
