FSE Design Import/Export – Templates, Template Parts, and Global Styles

Description

Import and export your block based FSE design: templates, template parts, and global/custom styles.

Easily move your full site editing design from one website to another, or from a local installation to a live site.

Ideal for designers and developers working with Gutenberg and a block based full-site-editing theme, who have edited their FSE/block based templates, template parts and custom styles, and now need to copy that design over to a new WordPress installation.

The Design Import/Export plugin allows this to be done with minimal fuss, and can also be used to take regular backups of your block based design(s).

Works with any full-site-editing theme and the Gutenberg plugin.

When FSE is available in WordPress core, this plugin will work just the same without the need for Gutenberg to be installed/activated.
