Import WordPress Theme Demo Content
when you upload a theme (any premium theme) on your WordPress it comes from the zero (with no content), free to you create your own design, you upload and active on your WordPress the tools to be able to build a site like the demo site or better, not a site itself (so I suggest you take a look at the theme online docs https://visualmodo.com/documentation/ and on the tutorials to see how to create pages on https://visualmodo.com/help/)
The demonstrative site pages of the theme is just an example of website that can be created with the theme features, It’s impossible for WordPress to download an entire site content while theme installation/upload, the hosts simply did not support it and give-up the process replying with an error message so you need to do this process in another area.
If you want your site looking like our demo site you will need to find a file on the theme folders called ‘sample.xml’ or ‘demo-content.xml’ in the ‘demo content.zip’ file, it’s a .xml file downloaded on the big theme folder that you get on marketplace, extract it, Just drag it and drop out of the folder, maybe on your desktop.
Install an import plugin on your wp (This one https://wordpress.org/plugins/wordpress-importer/ ) and import it on your site, go to wp-dashboard > ‘Tools’ > import’ > WordPress
Select ‘sample.xml’ the folder you have dropped on your desktop or any other area of your computer.
and do it. it can take some time according to the host service and speed because you are importing a big data and a lot of content) and sometimes your host simply gives up from the process at the beginning and reply you with an error log or a blank page and you need to reply the process. not a problem with it, you just need to try it out again.
NOTE: If you do not select the ‘import attachments’ options this process will be much easier for your host once you will not download all the hundreds of images present on theme demo but still download the entire pages layouts and content.
NOTE 2: in the case of errors: Some hosts apply low-size options on your php.ini folder, this file is very important and you can change/edit it in a way you don’t have this upload issues, you can contact your host support crew and ask for make bigger upload size limits on your php.ini. The lines you need to found and make bigger on your php.ini is: memory_limit = 32M / upload_max_filesize = 24M / post_max_size = 32M (number is just examples, bigger is better in this case) This guide can help you also https://mediatemple.net/community/products/dv/204404784/how-do-i-increase-the-php-upload-limits
