I am building a website for a client on a test domain on my personal hosting and I would like to transfer the pagelines site to their domain and hosting.
What is the procedure for backing up the site, including the pagelines data?

I recently tried to upgrade to DMS from a legacy platform and when I activate the theme get a message saying, "this page has a redirect loop" and goes not further. I used the Chrome Browser and I cleared the browser of the cookies. It shows that the theme is active in the theme area but does not ask for an activation Key. Any suggestions to fix the problem.
I am not leaving PageLines. In fact, I am testing it out and hope it may become a part of my business approach.
However, before I invest tons of time into customizing a whole site into PageLines, I need serious reassurance regarding what happens to the content.
I looked through the basic docs and the FAQ, and didn't see the answer to this question.
Does PageLines store content (including content in boxes and features and such) in a standard way that would transfer seamlessly into another non-PageLines Wordpress theme (perhaps as custom posts)?
What exactly happens to my content if I switch from PageLines to another theme? Where does all my content go?
I am reluctant to risk putting my clients onto a system that they cannot easily leave if they need to. One of the great things about Wordpress is the easy switching between themes. If all my content ends up "trapped" inside PageLines-specific containers, I lose this flexibility.
Thanks in advance for an honest answer. Even if your answer is "sorry, it doesn't work the way you want", I think you have a great system with a lot of potential. I just need to be clear about what happens if my test drive of your system doesn't work out.
Depending on your answer, I may choose to use PageLines for different projects than I'm considering right now, simply because of the nature of their content.
