I am trying to add one click demo install functionality to my themes. I have been able to add content and customizer options so far; but I am stuck at importing widgets.

I have been following this tutorial: One Click demo content installation feature in WordPress theme options panel

But it doesn't show how to import widgets!

I hope my question is clear. Thank you for your help

  • Can you explain what do you mean by import widgets? Do you need to transfer the settings for widgets from some other website or what exactly? Commented Feb 20, 2018 at 13:25
  • @MilanPetrovic I want to import widget settings and content into a new fresh website. I mean I want to give my customers the option to make their the website like the theme demo with just one click. I was able to import posts content and customizer settings , the problem is I don't know how to import the widgets? Commented Feb 21, 2018 at 14:02

WordPress doesn't have a way to do this on its own.

The best plugin to export widgets on one website I used, and import them into another website is Widget Importer & Exporter.
