This plugin adds some cool features to the Pen theme such as importing metadata from one post to another, importing\exporting color scheme(s) from one website to another, and a very useful toolbar menu for easier access to various parts of the Customize section, both from the front-end and the backend.
Upload the plugin files to the
/wp-content/plugins/pen-extra-features directory, or install the plugin through the WordPress plugins screen directly.
Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ screen in WordPress.
Enjoy having an improved UX with the Pen theme.
Where can I find the Pro version of the theme?
There is no “Pro” version for the Pen theme. The free version has everything and you are allowed to use it for your personal and commercial projects. However, if you need more support than what is provided here (e.g. over a weekend, extensive customization, etc), or if you are getting really rich by using this theme, or if you’d like to just support the development, then you are more than welcome to click one of those Buy Now buttons on our website, and thank you for that in advance, we appreciate it so much.
How can I apply the modifications e.g. color scheme(s) from another site that I’ve built using the Pen theme to a new one?
First you should make sure that you have installed this plugin on both sites.
Login to the WP backend of the finished website and then go to ‘Pen Theme’ -> ‘Customization Export’, copy or download that huge code.
Login to the new site and go to ‘Pen Theme’ -> ‘Customization Import’, now paste the whole code there and carefully check the preview before clicking the Import button, make ensure everything is exactly as you want because there’s no way to revert this.
Finally click the Import button and check your front-end to ensure everything is just as you were expected.
Should I use the Pen theme itself or use a Child theme?
If you need to extensively customize this theme which would include editing theme files too then you would indeed need to use a Child theme. Here are the top reasons why you should use Child themes. Otherwise, just use the Pen theme itself, it’d be easier.
I need a Child theme, how can I create one?
There are a number of plugins which would let you create a Child theme with just a few clicks.
You can go to your Plugins page and search for “child theme creator”, you will find several plugins to install and use.
