Mastering The Divi Import / Export Tool

Divi is an incredibly versatile theme platform to use when developing a wordpress website. Today we are going to cover how to use the import/export functionality Elegant Themes has built into nearly every section of Divi.

Portability and ease of transfer are one of the most important things I look for in a wordpress theme. This is mainly because I do a lot of conceptual design in subdomains of my main website. I like to take pieces of those concepts and implement them into final designs I do for clients.

Today we are going to cover a feature of one of my favorite themes, Divi. Specifically, we are going to talk about the import/export feature build in to Divi. Elegant Themes has done a really nice job with this theme and the support community is very active. The steps below are a reference point and the video will walk you through the process.

  • Go into the theme customizer of the wordpress installation of which you want to copy theme settings.
  • Select the up and down arrow icon.
  • Click on the export tab and save the .json file.
  • Name your file and select the blue export button.
  • Go into the new wordpress installation and return to the customizer.
  • Click the up and down arrow icon and this time select the import tab.
  • Go to browse and then select the file you exported from the original wordpress installation.
  • Select import divi customizer settings and everything from the original wordpress installation will be copied into the new wordpress installation.

This is a very simple, but powerful process. I hope you enjoyed this tip. I’d love your feedback, requests or suggestions. As always, thank you so much. I can’t tell you how much I appreciate your attention for a few minutes. I’d love to connect with you and hopefully help one another reach or continue living our dreams.

    Hello ,

    I saw your tweet about animals and thought I will check your website. I like it!

    I love pets. I have two beautiful thai cats called Tammy(female) and Yommo(male). Yommo is 1 year older than Tommy. He acts like a bigger brother for her. 🙂
    I have even created an Instagram account for them ( ) and probably soon they will have more followers than me (kinda funny).

    I wanted to subscribe to your newsletter, but I couldn’t find it. Do you have it?

    Keep up the good work on your blog.

      Hey Hey Wiki!
      So sorry for the delay!

      I love animals! They are the best!

      I do in fact have a newsletter. I haven’t linked it up on the site yet for no really good reason. Thanks for the heads up and reminder to get that going ASAP. I think that day is today!

      For now, you can jump over to and select stay connected on the left hand side.

      Have an awesome day!!!
