JetEngine Skins Manager: How to Import and Export Custom Post Types, Terms, and Meta Fields

This tutorial provides an overview of ropes how to import and export custom post types, terms, and meta fields.

You may have the custom post types, terms or meta fields that you’ve previously created

Also, you might have created the one that suits your need and want to export it as a new skin to keep using the previously created structure in the future.

In this tutorial, we will dive deeper into the details of how to perform both import and export for these parameters.
