How To Import / Export Your LayerSlider Sliders


LayerSlider allows you to easily export/import your sliders. It is always a good idea to backup your sliders / slides so you can easily import them again if you ever need to. Making animated slides takes a lot of time, so make sure you export the data, so you don't ever lose the time you've spent on them. Layer Slider can export all sliders at once, or you can export them individually.

How To Export LayerSlider Sliders

To export a slider, go to LayerSlider WP > Sliders from the WordPress dashboard. Select the slider, or sliders, you wish to export, choose Export from the dropdown list directly under the sliders and then click Apply.
