Widget Settings Importer/Exporter

Description

Gives the user the ability to export the current widget settings and states as a json file. You can then import those settings on a different server or installation of WordPress so you have the same widgets within the same sidebars as the export. The import will not overwrite any data currently within the sidebars, but instead will increment the widgets and add a new instance of the widget instead.

** Please note that the plugin currently does not import anything if that particular sidebar is unavailable during the import.

*** This plugin requires at least PHP 5.2.0

Good Job…
(PHP 5.7+)

it works but

it works for my first and second attempts. For the next attempt onward, the error occurs. I used gavick themes, might be this is the one that cause the conflict. Importing the setting of widget is successful. But, the widget that is being import cannot open to change it setting.

Just worked perfectly!

That was a great experience, simply works perfectly. The plugin saved me a lot of extra work. A+

Great Plugin

The plugin is great and easy to use except that it doesn’t remove the current widgets found on the new template.

I know maybe some people would like to preserve it but it would be better to just replace all widget and remove any current ones. Or notify the user to clear all widget before importing new backup.

Thanks for the great plugin!
