The Revolution Slider allows you to easily export/import your slides. It’s always a good idea to backup your slides so you can easily import them again if you ever need to. Making animated slides takes a lot of time, make sure you export the data so you don’t ever lose the time you’ve spent on them. The Revolution Slider requires you to export each slider individually. Export each slide you have made and it will give you an individual zip file that contains all the necessary files.

IMPORTANT NOTE

– Using the new ‘Add Slider Template’ option will not work unless you have a separate, registered license for this slider plugin. If you only have the Revolution Slider through the theme, then you will need to use an alternative method, explained below.

If the Demo Slider Template fails to import and you see the following error:

Warning
