A couple of days ago, I posted a question why Elementor kits don’t work in Local. Or better phrased: partially work in local. I’m talking about Local by Flywheel on your own computer. Not Flywheel online.
After a lot of experimenting, here are my experiences:
I set up a site in router mode localhost. No https.Then I download a kit from a seller. The kit doesn't work. I get an error message. I can import the kit, doing it file by file. I have to import each template in its respective page. Import the header and footer. Create the menus. Then set those menus to the header/footer.
This works, but only the pages and content minus images are imported.
Next I tried to import a site I have online as a kit into local. That works like a charm. Create the export kit online, download it, import it. Works perfect in Router mode localhost and Site domains.
That might be due to the router mode. I switched from localhost to Site domains. That brings me to experiment 2.
I switch router mode to Site domain. Create a new site. Install Elementor, activate the kit in experiments. Set up 2 sites: export and import.
- create a site in export, and export it to import.
Result: I can import pages and posts, plus the header/footer. But again, no images and no default-kit (with the fonts and the colors).
