Very easy to use.

Been waiting on a plugin like this

Works good and supports the woosidebars.

Functionality that should be built into WordPress

Brilliant plug-in, I have a client site with a huge number of sidebars using the Content Aware Sidebars, and with lots of Black Studio TinyMCE Widget entries so the client can add html formatting in WYSIWYG.

Problem was, they all vanished when I did a test migration on a sub-domain (the site is moving to a new host). Using this plugin, everything reappeared seamlessly - including the Black Studio TinyMCE entries, which I thought might fail!

Well done guys - great job, you just saved me a lot of stress and work - your plugin will now be a default install for all WordPress sites I work on!

I'm Angry I didn't find this plugin before today

Massively HUGE timesaver. Steven kills it yet again. Only issue is letting more people know his tools exist. Between this plugin and his Church Theme Content plugin he is starting to rival the GOAT, aka Pippin Williamson, for helpful plugins in my book.

Excellent Timesaver

I wanted to clone a big site but the cloning tool run into a timeout. So I had to install the new site manually and although it was no problem to copy the content, all widgets and their configuration were gone. On this site the main page as well as the main menu consisted of widgets. So being able to save the widgets from the original site and import it without problems into the new one was a massive timesaver.
Excellent tool!

Exactly what I needed

Thank you for this great tool! I needed to pull the widgets from one site and include them into another. -Favorited

Does one thing and does it well

I don't know how I wasn't aware of this plugin earlier but accidently stumbled upon it yesterday.

I build child themes for the Genesis framwework and use Multisite to showcase the demos. Manually configuring widgets for each demo site is (er, was) a major pain in the you-know-what.

With this plugin you simply create a export file, download it to your desktop and then import it into your new site. Done.

Awesome work guys!

Love It!
