Demo Content Import

NOTE: Before importing the demo content, make sure you have installed & activated any plugins that you need which are recommended within Appearance > Install Plugins. Especially make sure WooCommerce is installed & activated if you wish for the demo shop content to be imported.

To make the Demo Content Import process as simple as it could possibly be for you, we’ve created a plugin to handle the entire process for you. You have the option to choose from any of the example sites we’ve created, and options to choose the specific items you import.

1. The import process will work best on a clean install. You can use a plugin such as WordPress Reset to clear your data for you.

2. Ensure all plugins are installed beforehand, e.g. WooCommerce - any plugins that you add content to.

3. Be patient and wait for the import process to complete. It can take up to 5-7 minutes.

4. Enjoy

How long should it take?

The demo import should take around 5-7 minutes to complete.  If you find that the import is taking much longer than 5-7 minutes, there’s probably a problem, and you can navigate away from the import page. If the import does get stuck, you may need to increase the max exectution time. 

Solution 1

You'll need to contact your hosting provider and have them up your PHP memory limits in php.ini to at least 512MB and increase your max execution time http://php.net/manual/en/function.set-time-limit.php. Once they've done that go back to your site and run the importer and you should be good to go!

  1. Increase your max execution time, try 40000 I know its high but trust me
  2. Increase your PHP memory limit, try 512MB

Before running the demo import again, you should reset the database. We recommend the WordPress Reset plugin.

After success demo import your website should look like:

Important! Product images or images used in pages/posts and banners are not included in demo import.

Alternative Importing Method

If the one click demo import does not complete or takes too long, you most likely have a memory limit on your server as explained above. Here is another method to try.

  1. Go to Tools -> Import
  2. Choose “WordPress” from the list.
  3. Upload the demo content .xml using the form provided on that page. The xml file can be found in the theme folder in /Demo Content/Fashion/Theme Import Data/content.xml
  4. You will be asked to map the authors in this export file to users on the blog. For each author, you may choose to map to an existing user on the blog or to create a new user.
  5. You will then have the choice to import attachments, so click on the “Download and import file attachments” box.
  6. If the import does not fully complete, repeat these steps again as many times as necessary until you receive the Success message.
