Migrating content built with Divi builder
ServMark regularly gets asked questions relating to the Divi builder plug-in, especially about minified CSS and if there are any problems exporting and importing this static file. Cascading Style Sheets or CSS is the programme behind what makes your website look good. The programming is sent to your browser to be extracted to your web pages and look visually stunning. The following article explains how to export or import existing static CSS files created by the Divi builder plug-in without any problems.
In order to see the static CSS file, you must ensure that the picture options in the plug-in are enabled. When you are sure of this, you can create a static file. You can add additional CSS using the visual creator in the Divi builder plug-in. Once enabled, you will be able to edit every container created with the Divi builder plug-in on your page.
When you click on ‘Settings’ and then ‘Advanced’, you will see various options. You can add your custom CSS, CSS ID and classes to your site. The plug-in will cultivate all the classes, IDs or custom CSS codes and generate a static CSS file and load it on your page for you. Everything will automatically be stored in your database when you add your code and click on the ‘Save’ button.
It is important that you know the location of the file generated from them. The file is stored in your wp-content/cache folder. This means that it is essential that you do not exclude the cache folder from export. You may know that there are advanced options on the export page; ensure that the file will be included in your WordPress file. After import, the file will be in the right place, and you should not have a problem with your CSS.
The second important thing to remember is that you should not export your website with an excluded database. Every custom CSS, class or ID is inserted into your database. If you exclude the database from the export, you can’t move those CSS values to your new website, and you will experience problems when loading your static file.
One final important thing to remember; do not export your website without the cache and database at the same time. It would mean that your static file will not move, and your custom styles will not be in the database. This means that the Divi builder plug-in will generate a file for you without changes from the exported site.
Just follow these simple steps, and Divi builder will take care of the rest.
