Import Content & Widgets

Import the content

  1. Go to your WordPress dashboard > Appearance > Import Demo Data
  2. Click on the Select a file button under Import Content (Select an XML file to import)
  3. Select one of the content files* to import (example: import-demo-posts.xml or import-custom-pages.xml) file from the theme folder
  4. Click on the Continue & Import button and stay on the page until it’s completed

If you already have published blog posts, import only the import-custom-pages.xml file because the import-demo-posts.xml file will import the posts from the demo. It’s important to import the custom pages, so you can set them up like the demo – you’ll only have to replace the content with your own.

Import the widgets

  1. Go to your WordPress dashboard > Tools > Widget Importer & Exporter
  2. Click on Choose file and select the import-widgets.wie file from the theme folder
  3. Click on Import Widgets and you’re done!

If you get an error (“You must upload a .wie file generated by this plugin”), install and activate the Disable Real MIME Check plugin and try again. After you’ve imported the widgets, you can delete the plugin.
