I really need your help here to ensure that this is going to be a smooth transition so please take the time to answer each question and not just send me to your documentation which is lacking in the explanation which is why I am asking for help.

I staged the site on my servers to build the site and add the plugins I need to use in order to leave the current site live. My staged site is located at http://gittyupgo.com/rampartneil. Now that I have the site built I exported the content via Themler Tools and then I also exported the Wordpress Site via Wordpress Tools.

The live site is http://rampartpropertymgmt.com. Please verify the following steps if they are correct, please indicate so, if not, please indicate what I need to do in detail.

  1. I assume I would first install my theme that I had originally exported from Themler (although I used themler on the Wordpress site to make updates - when I saved changes, your pop-up came up that I needed a Wordpress license which I should not because I just purchased one for this! I did notice that some of my changes did not save and I assume it is because your pop-up says I need a license and I do not).
  2. Once the theme is installed which should also install Themler (as long as your pop-up does not force me to buy another license which I should not have to do - if it does, please fix this issue or tell me the workaround for it), the next step would be to import the content that I exported out through Themler - correct?
  3. After I have this all imported in through the Themler Tools import tool, I would then import into the Wordpress that I also exported through using the Wordpress Import Tool.
  4. Once I assure that everything imported as it should, then I can activate the theme and it should work as installed on the staged site once all the plugins I used are installed and activated - correct?

I hope it is as easy as that. Please answer me ASAP as I need to get this client's site live as soon as possible and sadly your documentation does not address this. May I recommend that you incorporate this into your documentation?

Thank you for your expedited help, it is appreciated.

Hi,

Themler Import/Export content feature exports posts, pages, menus and images only.
WordPress Import/Export Tool exports posts, pages, comments, custom fields, terms, navigation menus, and custom posts.
Both features do not import/export WP plugins and their settings.
In general, if you're using WP Import/Export tool which does the same, as far as I know, you do not need to import content from the theme.
I suggest that you transfer WP content using WP Import/Export Tool, check the content and menus. Install Themler theme and activate it without importing content. It should be enough. Make sure that everything is ok and all content appear as it should. Most probably you will need to configure menu locations under the WP Appearance >> Menus and configure widgets since WP Export tool does not export widgets.

As alternative, you can search for the external tools which can transfer the whole website with whole database and plugins.

Ads I can see your Business subscription is active. You may see this message if you either not logged in Themler or you're trying to save/export Woocommerce theme which is not included into the Business subscription.

Please keep us posted about the progress.

Thank you,
Olivia

I used All-in-one WP Migration plugin and works perfect - all transfers and installs and works like a charm!
