Exporting Content

Migrating Individual Pages

Migrate Page Builder layouts by downloading the layout JSON file. Within Page Builder, go to LayoutsImport/ExportDownload Layout.

To import the layout into a Page Builder page, edit the page in Page Builder, click LayoutsImport/ExportImport Layout. The process is the same for the traditional Page Builder interface or the SiteOrigin Layout Block in the Block Editor.

Migrating Content Using the WordPress Importer

Page Builder works with the standard WordPress importer. It’s the simplest way to move your site content from one server to another. Once the WordPress Importer plugin has been installed and activated, navigate to ToolsExport, select All Content, and then click Download Export. This will download an XML file to your chosen download location. Before importing content to your new WordPress installation, be sure first to install SiteOrigin Page Builder, Widgets Bundle, and any other supporting plugins. To import your content, go to ToolsImport, click WordPress and use the Choose File button to select your XML file. Complete the process by clicking the Upload file and import button.

Migrating Entire Sites Using Duplicator

If you’d like to migrate your entire WordPress installation to another server, we highly recommend using Duplicator Plugin. Duplicator will take care of things like moving your theme and plugin files and any media you’ve uploaded. We’ve tested it, and it works well with Page Builders content.

Updating URLs

Page Builder data is serialized. When doing database URL updates Better Search Replace can be used without damaging Page Builder content as it supports serialized data.
