Import and export your block based FSE theme design: templates, template parts, and global/custom styles.
Easily move your custom full site editing theme design from one website to another, or from a local installation to a live site.
Ideal for designers and developers working with the Site Editor and a block based full-site-editing theme, who have edited their FSE/block based templates, template parts and custom styles, and now need to copy that design over to a new WordPress installation.
The FSE Theme Design Import/Export plugin allows this to be done with minimal fuss, and can also be used to take regular backups of your block theme based design(s).
Works with any full-site-editing block theme.
