Add-ons or import first?

    Hi guys

    Just a quick question. I've been playing around on a test site to try out different add-ons and get my style ready. When I do convert my board, will it be OK to do a fresh install, get my style set up, install any add-ons I want to use, then do the import?

    Or should the import always come first?

    It doesn't matter. But I have seen rare reports of addons causing errors during the import. It's not an expected thing, but buggy addons happen sometimes.

    Thanks, Jake. I'll see how it goes. Only planning to use about 5-6 add-ons to start with so hopefully I should be OK.

    I'd install add-ons, disable them, then import


    Import followed by install add-ons

    Having add-ons on while importing isn't idea
