I’m still getting stuck on my very first steps with Pinegrow. After EArnoud could clarify for me, which the Theme Folder is (after I found that a bit confusing in the Freelancer/OlafPineson tutorial), I’m still stuck at Step 2 of the same tutorial.
The problem is: After I’ve put in all the right details in the fields of the “Wordpress site” window, and click on “Wordpress > Export the theme”, I get a pop-up window that says:
“Error - Exporting too many files”.
I’ve tried the same setups now on two computers (one where I’ve got the license, another one with a free trial) on different local servers, using MAMP, Local by Flywheel and Xampp, and always get the same error: “Error - Exporting too many files”.
How is that? Where do I go wrong?
I have not done any of the things suggested by the error message.
The amount of files mentioned there (more than 14MB/1673 files) is what the folder of the source files (Freelancer by StartBootstrap) contains, and (to my eyes) everything looks just like in the tutorial.
I started this question again with “Elementary …” because I think it’s probably something so simple that only PG beginners like me can get wrong …
Pls. help! Thx!
I’d like to add that I did try to click the button “No, that’s what I want. Proceed with export!” anyway TWICE. I just didn’t mention it before, because I thought, the files had got exported to the wrong folder as a result of me entering the wrong details the first time around. HOWEVER, to me at least, the same wrongful thing (I’m sure it’s wrong?) happens when I put in the right details:
= everything from the source folder gets exported to a new folder “_pgexport” inside that same source folder - that is the project folder, NOT THE THEME FOLDER.
Here’s a picture of the details I entered in WP ACTIONS FOR <HTML> , with the project folder path at the top of the frame:
So: What reason should there have been for saying it’s TOO MANY FILES?
Another funny thing: I took that snapshot yesterday (couldn’t upload it in one post, as I’m a beginner without the rights to do so). Today, I wanted to take another one (after I’d reinstalled WP, due to some changes), and try export again … but all the fields for entering details under " WP ACTIONS FOR <HTML>" were gone! … very same thing on my other laptop (where I’m using Local by Flywheel, and a trial versin of PG) and had made no changes to the WP installation …
So as this may be a bug, I’ll be sending you these questions also by e-mail. I’ve paid for Pinegrow, and I want to get to work with it now, but so far … no headway. For now, I’m getting back to coding the WP theme I must get finished this week manually again.
I gave it another try today, deleted all previous attempts and started fresh, this time with some more success. The same Error message came up as well, but when I checked the source AND theme folder, the files were there - in both folders … they’d got exported to both of them … I’m a beginner (with PG, not WP) and I don’t know, if that’s how it’s supposed to be (backup to source, yes, but export too?) … I believe I’d checked both yesterday, too, but as I didn’t make a snapshot, I can’t definitely say … I’ll get back with more or final results when I have them.
You may have better luck posting this to the Wordpress section of the forum. I do not use wordpress so I can not help you.
