WordPress comes with few default post types – Post, Page, Attachment, Revision, and Navigation Menus. Before this, I also shared a WordPress Custom Post Types Generator to build your own custom post types.
When building a WordPress theme in localhost, I always had a hard time exporting the Menus. I often had to manually recreate the Menus on the live site after finish transferring the theme. I believe there’s a shortcut. Luckily, I found a very handful plugin to help me importing Menus to another site (in my case, from my localhost to client’s website).
Introducing Export WordPress Menus plugin.
It is what it is. The plugin will allow you to export WordPress Page or any terms on the Menu and import them to your new website.
Using WordPress Menu Exporter Plugin
1. Install and activate Export WordPress Menus plugin.
2. To export existing menu, go to Tools > Export
3. Install and activate the plugin on the new website.
4. Import the menu file. Go to Tools > Import
If you found any problem with the plugin, please address the issue in the support forum. I found this plugin to be very useful to me so I decided to share it in this article so more users can benefit from it.
The WordPress import tool also works as Held mentioned in the comment below. The only caveat is that it will also import all your content, including post, page, and attachment.
