Problem with Theme Setting Import

Recommended Posts

rachaelm

I am having trouble with an import of my previously exported theme settings. It does the import, but the settings that should be there are not there. Specifically I had several custom CSS code bits, I can open the .dat file and see them. But when I do the import they are not placed in the Platform Pro Custom CSS section. For the export and import, it is the same server, host, theme version (1.5) and everything. I simply did an export and then played around with the settings and was trying to go back. I have tried upgrading to the latest 1.5.3 to the theme and it did not help.

Are they in the style.css stylesheet (WP -> Appearance -> Editor)? I don't know why it wouldn't be working but another alternative would be to copy/paste into style.css in PlatformBase.

No, they are in the Platform Pro, Custom Code, CSS rules section. I can seem them in the .dat file if I open it up, but those settings are NOT going in when I do the import. It is some kind of bug.

css rules are included in the dat file. Did you edit the file at all?

I have requested developer attention for this.

No, I didn't edit the file, just looked at it to confirm the CSS rules were in the .dat file. When I import the .dat file, I don't get any error message, it looks like things are fine, but nothing seems to be actually imported.

I didn't even look in the .dat file till after I figured out the import wasn't working properly.

Do all the other settings upload fine, is it just the CSS that is not importing? Is the CSS valid? Any typos or
