Hi Experts,

I am about to launch a website from a development environment to production. I am not pretty sure how to get a pretty smooth process since the times I have done it before I always get part of the content right and then I have to modify things to make it look right.
For example usually I have to import widgets, other plugins settings such as Genesis Extender and FS contact form.

what I always do first is to import the database (making sure the paths are correct) and then import the entire wordpress folder.

Is there a better way to do this?

Thanks in advance,
