Genesis Extra Settings Transporter

Adds support for exporting settings of various Genesis Framework specific plugins & Child Themes via the Genesis Exporter feature.

What's the recommended usage of this plugin?

Just see plugin description page for a typical workflow example.

"Genesis Simple Sidebars" plugin: Why are inpost/ inpage settings not included?

Good question, hehe :). Simple answer: not possible as these settings belong to the actual post meta. You can always import & export all posts/ pages/ custom post types via the NATIVE WORDPRESS export and import functionality. This applies for any inpost/ inpage/ CPT post meta settings in WordPress generally. All administrator users have access to "Tools" in the left-hand admin menu and could do exports and imports.

Why are Widget settings not included?

That's just not possible yet. Still, there is no such functionality in WordPress core as is in Genesis yet! However, there's a nice third-party plugin for that, to use at your own risk: "Widget Settings Importer/Exporter"

Why isn't plugin/ child theme X,Y not supported?

I can only support plugins and child themes that make use of the WordPress/ Genesis settings API and use a settings field other than that from Genesis itself. Will more developers add this to their work I could add support in this helper plugin. It's as simple as that :).

The way better alternative, though, is, when developers add that little hook in to the Genesis Exporter natively! In this case I might remove support here for such a plugin/ child theme, of course.

Also note, some plugins have 1 or 2 little settings included in Genesis Theme Settings, therefore THESE settings are then included in the native Genesis export file. So you'll already have these safe for your exports and imports as well.

What's up with the Prose child theme?

"Prose" natively includes its settings on the Genesis exporter page, so you're already hooked up! You can export and import all "Design Settings" at any time!

Some settings seem not to be included, what should I do?

Just make sure you have the very same versions of the plugins or child themes installed. If you have a development and live install, just make sure, both have "Genesis Simple Hooks, version" installed, to name an example. -- Reason: Sometimes setting field names could differ between different versions, or settings may be added or removed in newer/ older versions.

Hands down, how does it all work?

Just to clarify: This plugin here does NO export/ import ON ITS OWN! It just hooks in to the existing Genesis Exporter feature and leverages existing Genesis & WordPress functionality :).
