When building a website it may be overwhelming to make the whole content from the ground up. That is why it’s very helpful to import the demo content, which is provided with every one of our themes. The whole process is easy, simply follow the instructions below.
First, you need to check if your hosting’s PHP version and MySQL version meet the official WordPress recommendation.
Since new themes require certain server resources to work smoothly, it’s necessary to set them to the recommended values:
To change these values, you can go to your Hosting Panel or cPanel and set the desired values. Also, you can edit the php.ini file on your server or, if you don’t feel comfortable doing it by yourself, you can contact your hosting provider for assistance.
Note that there are two types of PHP values: Local and Master ones. Local values can be changed within the .htaccess file, and master ones within the server configuration (php.ini file).
You should also check the PHP values by using, for example, this plugin.
After installing your chosen theme and all its required plugins, you need to activate the Theme Core plugin. If you haven’t installed the Theme Core plugin by now, you can navigate to Appearance > Install Plugins, and under the Theme Core click Install.
This will give you access to the Theme Dashboard. When you go to the Theme Dashboard, you will see the Registration form where you need to enter your Purchase Code and Email address.
If you are not sure where to find your Purchase Code, you can check out this article.
After registering your theme you can continue with the import.
When the server resources and plugins are sorted out, go to Theme Dashboard > Import:
In the Select Demo to Import field, if both Elementor and WPBakery demo content is available, you should choose the one which uses your preferred page builder. Whether you choose Elementor or WPBakery now will affect which of these two plugins you use for content editing in the future. However, if only one option is available, like in the example shown below, leave that option.
For Select Import Option choose All, and for Import Attachments choose Yes, then click on Import.
If the import freezes at some point, you can refresh the page and try importing Content, Widgets, Options, Single Page, Revolution Sliders separately using the Import Option. Make sure to refresh the page after each import.
When the import completes, go to Plugins to check if there are any plugins that you plan on using that haven’t been activated yet, and make sure to activate them now.
Next, navigate to Settings > Reading and set the page that you wish to use as the homepage of your site.
Then, navigate to Settings > Permalinks, choose Post Name in the Common Settings, and Save Changes.
Finally, navigate to the Theme Core Options and click on Save Changes to generate a new dynamic CSS file.
