I see. Well let me try to wrap my head around this. When I do as you say how will I import the customizations back to get the site structure I had. I havent added content, just constructed groups, some test users, reordered the menu, and deleted unwanted pages. It may not seem like a lot but I am juggling a lot of site builds at the moment and this stuff actually took me a lot of time to fit into my schedule. I dont want to even have to recreate the groups, and upload the blasted icons and background images that I spent getting just right. I just want to continue from where I left off. Forgive me but I have rarely handled importing operations.
