Import or export themes

Save and re-use themes with Import and Export theme

The Import theme and Export theme actions allow you to capture all of the settings you have chosen for your intranet's theme, and easily save them for later use, or import them all at once on to your intranet.

This is useful for moving your theme from your staging to your production instance of ThoughtFarmer. You may want to test and tweak an updated or seasonal theme on your staging instance, and then transfer it to your production instance when you are happy with it.

Export a theme

  1. Go to the Administration panel: User interface section > Theme page.
  2. If you make any changes to the Theme page prior to exporting, make sure to Save your changes.
  3. Click Export theme, and Save file.
The Theme will be saved as a .theme file in your Downloads folder. The filename will include your intranet name and the date and time of the export. You may wish to rename the file and move it to another folder for easy access.

Import a theme

Importing a theme will overwrite your current theme settings. If you want to save the current theme for later use, be sure to export it before importing a new theme.
  1. Go to the Administration panel: User interface section > Theme page.
  2. Click Import theme.
  3. Click Browse to find, select, and open the theme file you want to import.
  4. Click Import.
  5. The Theme page will refresh with your new theme applied.
