Importing Demo Data
Optionally, you may install our demo data, which will populate your site with the pages you see on our live demo. This can give you a head start in setting up your site. Once you get your site setup and get the hang of it, you may delete the unwanted posts or pages as you see fit.
You can download only the XML Import File if you want or you can use the One Click Demo Install, this way with just one click you get the same site that you see on the demo.
For this, first make sure you have installed the One Click Demo Import plugin. You can follow the instructions in Recommended Plugins to install this plugin.
Ok, now let's go to your Admin Panel > Appearance > Import Demo Data, there click on "Import Demo Data":
This may take a few minutes, just wait until it says it is done.
Note: All the images were replaced with placeholders, this is to make the import process much faster and to avoid copyrights issues with the images.
All theme’s options are in the WordPress Customizer Appearence > Customize. Here you can select things like the styling colors, change typography and much more.
All color options are in Appearence > Customize > Colors. Select the color you want and then click on “Save & Publish”.
