Important: We recommend that you backup your site before importing a kit file.

Important: An invalid template error will be displayed if attempting to import kits from Envato using the Elementor Import feature. These kits are bundled differently than Elementor Kits. When using kits from Envato, you will need to install and import using their companion plugin. Please refer to their documentation for more information.

Tip: If you develop your website locally using Local by Flywheel, Xampp, or other server solutions, you must allow inbound traffic to your web server. The importer must be able to reach the source files in order to grab images and other dependencies. Refer to your server documentation. If unable to do so, you will need to manually replace the missing dependencies on the new website.
