This theme supports one-click demo import. You can import the settings and setup for any of the 4 demos styles available for this theme. Import includes fake pages, posts, products and portfolio items, menus, widgets and Customizer Settings.
* This import does not include all images from the demo site. Import files will all images would be enormous and result in import failures due to excessive files sizes.
WARNING: If you have an established blog that is live, we recommend using the Manual Demo Import instead of One-Click Demo Import!
NOTE: This process requires you have the One Click Demo Import plugin installed. Also, in order to import all the widget settings and other settings, make sure you have installed and activated all the Recommended Plugins.
NOTE: It is not a good idea to import one demo and then try and import a different demo on top of it. If you change your mind and want to try a different demo, use a plugin like Customizer Reset to reset all Customizer settings BEFORE you import different settings. Also, delete all existing widgets if you want to re-do the widget import.
Let's get started:
1. Go to Appearance > Import Demo Data
2. You will see a screenshot of the demo theme so that you can verify which demo you're importing. Under each screenshot is an Import Button
NOTE: We do not recommend using the One-Click demo import more than once per site. If you have previously used the One-Click with this theme and want to change styles, please follow the Manual Demo Import directions to import the Customizer styles.
3. To start the import, click the Import button under the demo of your choice.
4. You will see a pop up window that asks you to confirm that you want to import the demo. Click the Yes, import! button.
5. The import processing page will open. DO NOT leave this page while the import is in process or it will fail.
6. When the import is complete, you will receive the "That's it, all done!" success message. You are ready to start customizing your site.
Some users may experience import errors. This is usually due to import file limits set by your web host.
The most common error looks like this:
Fatal error: Maximum execution time of 30 seconds exceeded in ...
- This means your host has set a max time limit for a process at 30 seconds.
- This is not very long when trying to import files that include images, etc.
To fix this error, you can:
1. Install and activate the following plugin: WP Maximum Execution Time Exceeded
* Please make sure you follow the plugin Installation directions
2. Contact your web host and ask them to increase your Maximum execution time
3. Attempt to increase the Maximum execution time yourself - See this article
* If you continue to have issues, we recommend trying the Manual Import Process which uploads one file at a time instead of all 3 import files.
