Installing Sampledata

To manually install the demo content for any of our themes, simply make sure to go to themeforest and download the “All Files & Documentation” link. After doing so, look for a folder or .xml file labeled Sampledata. Inside you’ll find a file with the ‘.xml’ extension.

XML File

Once you have located the xml file you wish to import, log into your WordPress website and navigate to Tools –> Import to begin the import process.

Import

Click on the WordPress option If you haven’t done so already, you will be prompted to install the WordPress Importer free WordPress plugin. Just install it like you would any other plugin, and after you activate it return to this screen.

Then click the Browse button to select the xml sample data file you would like to upload, and click Upload file and import. This will take you to the next screen:

Importing options

The importer will give you the option to either import our demo users, or to assign the posts to an existing user on your WordPress site. For each option we recommend that you assign the posts to an existing user (ideally your user account, since you are the one working on the website).

You’ll also see an option to import file attachments. Check this box only if you want to import all image and media files included in our demo.
