Well, after panic and attempts to figure it out, I decided to just run the test and edit the live side by side. As I went through all the settings one by one, I found they were actually there! Some of the links, such as the favicon, wouldn’t work even though the link was correct. I found forcing a jpg as a favicon first, then reinserting the favicon link worked. Had another item in a widget that did that too. None of the widgets themselves came in with the any of the info, but don’t know if this would be a wordpress or theme issue. I also found that some of the pages were doubled up and the menu items were not connected correctly. Theme or wordpress issue? Don’t know, but flipping between the two sites worked relatively quickly, all things considered. I’m as finished as I can be for now.
