How to use Enfold with import/export Plugins
Enfold uses custom fields (post meta data) to store the template builder data. Thus you must be careful if you want to export/import pages with plugins like WP Import/Export All because by default the plugins will not export/import custom fields. However it’s really easy to add these fields to the export/import file. If you’re using WP Import/Export All go to “All Export > New Export” on the wordpress admin page and select the post type you would like to export (i.e. “Pages”). Then click “Continue to Step 2”. On the next page you’ll notice the “Available Data” column on the right side. It contains three tabs (“Standard” for standard data, “Custom Fields” for post meta data and “Other” for other data fields).
If you want to be on the safe side we recommend to select the “All Standard”, “All Custom Fields” and “All Other” cards from the tabs and to drag’n’drop these cards to the left area. Then you can be sure that the required data will be exported. If you don’t want to export all fields (i.e. because of the size of the database) then you must at least select following fields – otherwise the template builder won’t work properly after the import: “<_aviaLayoutBuilder_active>”, “<_aviaLayoutBuilderCleanData>”, “<_avia_builder_shortcode_tree>”, “<_thumbnail_id>”, “”, “”, “
