All done. That was easy. Have fun!
Okay everything done that’s fine. Your demo content is already imported have a look.
Although this behavior listed below are rare in clean install . If by any chance your site doesn’t look like our demo after installing demo content then this could be the reasons.
- It is always recommended to install these demo content on a clean install only. Importing on sites with content or importing twice will duplicate menus, pages and all posts and will replace current theme options, sliders and widget settings.
- Sometimes post id, page id, menu id might change when importing xml file. WordPress importer by default works this way. In such case your demo might not look exactly like our and you may have to reselect the appropriate page, post, category and menu your self.
Well that’s it. If you have any confusion you can put it on our support forum.
