Merge Feature Walk-through


What is Merging?

 

Staging allowed you to create a duplicate website to test any changes in plugins, themes or code, without worrying about breaking your site. Merging is essentially a Power Up to Staging. Merge allows you to migrate the changes made on the staging site to your live site.

 

How to perform BlogVault Merge for your website?

 

1. Staging

You can learn how to Stage your website here Stage your site and perform all the changes in content, links and plugin, theme or code updates and installations.

 

2. Click Merge to Production

On the BlogVault Dashboard, under the Staging section, you will find the Merge to Production option. Click this to begin the Merging process.

 

3. See the Differences between the Staging site and the Production site

The modified tables files on the list are already sorted under categories such as plugin, theme, core, uploads, and others, making it easy to review the changes. Additional information such as versions of each of your plugins and themes is also provided.
