Because of the way your themes use this “Theme Options” interface, which is really horrible, clunky, and takes ages just to preview a simple change, it’s really difficult if you spend a number of hours setting up a theme, then realise that you need to create a child theme.
Because when you create a child theme, all those custom “theme options” are lost, and you have to start from scratch.
Is there a reasonable way to transfer all these settings please?
Even if I have to edit the database manually, this would be preferable to having to set everything up from scratch. Imagine how much work – you’d have to go through every setting on the original theme and write down every single color setting, every slider setting – hundreds of textareas to re-populate.
(Specifically I’m talking about Business Web theme, but also use Social Pro and looking to use other of your themes.)
