Recommended Plugins Overview
Customizer Export / Import
Stax theme uses the default WordPress customizer to help in the customization of settings within the theme.
The Customizer Export / Import plugin is quite useful in importing and exporting these settings customizations within the theme. Let’s say for example you originally had all your customizer settings applied within your parent theme and later on you setup a child theme of which you would like to have all the settings from the parent theme within it. In such a case, the customizer export / import plugin comes in handy in exporting the settings from the parent theme and importing them into the child theme.
Elementor is a drag and drop website builder. We recommend using Elementor while designing your site. The plugin provides great flexibility allowing you to create stunning pages with instant results.
