    Hey everyone, just a few basic questions that I’d love answered. Google wasn’t much help and I didn’t see anything specific here, but to be safe I’ll make em quick!

    First, is there anyway to transfer Evolve’s theme settings? I’m not just talking about simply downloading an XML file, or maybe I am. The reason I ask is in potentially going with a different host, I noticed I had to start from scratch with my site’s Evolve settings. If there’s no way it can be done that’s fine, but if so, clearly I’m missing it!

    Same goes for this next one, as I’d love to be able to change the color of the header… If that’s possible, and if I’m using that part in the right way. You know, where your logo \ site title and tag-line will go, right above the menu bar. Can that area’s color be changed?

    Either way I appreciate the help in advance!

    just back up the datbase. You will have to edit the URL’s to match if you change domain but if you keep everything the same, just upload the database backup and the settings will be in there.

    @donnawpadmin – Hey thanks for the help. Just to clarify, do you mean as long as the site address is the same, I should be able to transfer everything and not have to redo the settings? As it is I did the normal export to XML file through dashboard \ tools… The temp address was different from the main, and when I imported I saw that I’d have to retweak the site from scratch.

    @romik84 – Thank you for the help as well! But, and of course there’s a but, I didn’t see that option in either the WP dashboard or customize. If you mean under tools, that’s what I’m having the issues with. I’m also still having a little trouble with getting the tagline font to appear larger.

    Theme options is the last item under appearance. Once you do that, import/export is the last option under theme options, You can export the theme settings.

    And if your URL doesn’t change, or any of your database information, you should just be able to backup the database, then import the backup to the new site. XML WordPress export is something completely different. If you want to back up the database, do it from PHPmyAdmin in cPanel on your host, or get the WP-Migrate plugin which also works great. I dont’ know whta you mean by temp address…if the URL isn’t the same, you do search and replace with the velvet blues plugin which works great for updating URLS. Don’t select the update GUIDs option or your images won’t come up.

    Hi,

    We think that below screenshot help you.

    For tagline

    Thank you

    Great, I hadn’t installed the plugin yet and see the option now… But halfway there guys, thank you! One problem, as you knew in your heart there would be; is when I attempt to import the settings, I don’t have the option to upload the file. I tried putting in the website by importing the ‘url,’ and even simplifying and typing in the file name and location and uploading ‘from file,’ and nothing changed… Maybe I’m not giving it enough time, but I tried two browsers as well and still nothing.

    (And no Donna, didn’t want to get that deep into the weeds, for obvious reasons!)

    Weeds? I don’t have a clue what that means.

    You know, nothing else works absolutely perfect. sooner or later, you will need to learn how to back up and restore a database manually from cPanel. But maybe this will work for you. Yes, you need the Redux Framework installed, this theme doesn’t work without it. How can you not know that? The theme gives you ALL KINDS of warning and notices if it’s not installed, doesn’t it?

    Wow my bad, I didn’t mean that to come off snarky if it did. I meant that in working with two hosting companies and my IT guy, I didn’t want to get further bogged down into everything if I could help it.

    And yep, I definitely know that but ignored it at my own peril! (Truth be told in learning about all this I had it on my list to look into the redux frame.) Either way my apologies for not being clearer and or if I came off pissy, totally not my intentions.

    I’m not really sure what you are apologizing for. I don’t see a reason that you need to anywhere. Forgive me for the over-detailing. When you give someone help, you never quite know what their level of technical understanding is. Most WordPress users are at a certain level, which I obviously misjudged in your case. But you owe no apologies for that. I hope it works out for you. 2 hosts and a webmaster tho I would think you would have better help and not be struggling through it so much. So give an update after you install Redux huh? Did it help?

    Hi,

    We have to give three options for import your data on another site.
    First: http://prntscr.com/gdvmae
    second:http://prntscr.com/gdvmye
    Third: http://prntscr.com/gdvnri

    after that click import button and give a message “Setting Import!” It means all done, your data is import successfully.

    Thank you

    @donna – Sounds good, and yes, believe it or not I’m the IT guy for my family and some friends and it can be tough in gauging what problem they have and how bad. For me it seems if it’s too simple or too complicated, I have trouble, so I always look for that sweet spot!

    But yes, I haven’t fully investigated the Redux yet but seems like a great plugin! I followed your instructions @romik84 and had better luck but, and of course there’s a but, I can’t the setup quite right… I usually have four rows of three posts, but with the transfer I only have three rows of three posts and then a single post on the next level.

    Hi,

    We think that you talk about show blog post in single pages.
    Check this Option may be it’s helpful
    Settings -> Reading -> Blog pages show at most

    Thank you

    Worked like a charm! Really kind of getting embarrassed at this point! But with all these settings issues and transferring, and everything else surrounding building and rebuilding and backing up a site, well, you can imagine it’s easy to overlook something! (Love me some face saving!)

    Either way I definitely appreciate the help from you guys! (And I’ll keep this thread saved so I don’t have to make another one:)
