Thanks to the Thesis wizards at 3DogMedia, you can easily transfer all the settings you’ve customized in the Thesis admin panels. Combined with the files in your custom folder, you now have everything you need to perfectly recreate your site somewhere else.
First, get the plugin: Thesis Import/Export . Install it, activate it, and go to the plugin settings page. There, you need to click the button to “download current layout” for BOTH the Thesis Options and Design Options. This will result in two files downloaded to your computer. On your new site (or fresh WordPress install), you must install the plugin first, then just reverse the process and upload the files you grabbed from the old site (make sure you’ve kept them straight) with the “upload layout” button.
Also, make sure you’ve replaced the new site’s default custom folder with the contents of your old “customized” files ( custom_ , , images folder, etc.), and that’s it!
