json restore question

Asked on June 4, 2015 in Troubleshooting.

I tried to export a json; contents seem to be fine. Then I tried to restore the page using the Upload & Import button in Layers. The json was uploaded to the media directory and the page was not restored.

    Hi there,

    I can only test this on the current version of Layers 1.1.4 on a local and live test site and confirm it is working normally.
    1. Ensure Layers is updated
    2. Ensure you exported from a live server or otherwise have all images correctly stored in a preset-images folder used to set the widget content.
    3. The page importing TO should be new (ie not containing previous content or it will be lost!) I also recommend saving it as a draft after you add the page title and before doing the import so it is not sitting in a transient state that is not auto-saving.
