How To Import Demo Content

With our One-Click Import functionality in our themes you can import all the demo content from our demo sites into your theme easily and quickly.

The importer will import all the pages, posts, custom posts, front page, widgets, theme options, assign menus, etc. from our demo sites for you to look through and modify as you require while building your website.

Importing Content

  1. Navigate to ThemeSqaured → Theme OptionsImport/Export Tab.
  2. Click the Import Demo Content button.
  3. This will start importing all content and settings from our demo site. It can take some time to import everything. Please be patient and wait for it all to load.
  4. Once this process is complete you will see a “Success” message and you are ready to begin working.

Common Issues and Questions

1. Slider Alias or ID Not Found For Layer or Revolution Slider

If you already have sliders made, its possible that our demo sliders may not be applied to the pages. You may see an error such as Revolution Slider Error: Slider with alias homepage not found or LayerSlider cannot be found. Sliders are applied by the Slider ID and each slider gets its own unique ID and they are given in numerical order. If you open up a page after importing the content, and you see an error like that.

Solution: You only need to edit the page and assign the slider to the page. To verify you have the sliders, go to the Layer or Revolution Slider section of your admin to see them listed. If you do not see them, then you can import them separately

2. Demo Import Fails or Times Out

Whenever that happens its due to low server memory or execution time, and your host should definitely be willing to adjust that, they have it very low if the content will not import. Contact them and explain the issue, they should raise it for you. Please see some important links below dealing with this.

3. Demo Content Duplicated

When you import our demo content it can take several minutes depending on the speed of your server. Each time the button is clicked it will import the content, so if it is clicked twice it will import everything two times. There are two ways to get rid of duplicate content.

WP Reset Plugin – This plugin is the fastest way to get rid of content. However, it will remove all content from your database and leave the default theme activated. It does not remove plugins, but will deactivate them and remove all pages, posts, menus, sliders, widget data, theme options, etc. Basically it removes all the content that you imported from our theme. Only do this if you are able to start over. Click Here To Download.

Manual Removal – This method will take longer and simply involves manual removing of duplicate items. For example, go to the Appearance;Menus['labels] and delete duplicate items one by one. Same goes for pages, post, sliders, etc.

    I imported the demo content but when I try to access the homepage i get an error when trying tooo access the pabe : Record not found....

    I found a way around : I have to go on every page in the dashboard and click update, then the readability SEO is red. Then i can access it.

    In the Demo Content there are a lot of pages.

    Please tell me what happens.

    Thanks
