#IMPORTING DEMO

 

FRESH WORDPRESS USERS:

We assume demo import is best for a new and freshly installed WordPress site. If you have fresh and Newly WordPress installed then the first step is

Delete Hello world! Post form Dashboard → Posts

Also Delete  Sample page from Dashboard → Pages

These Post and Pages comes by default to get the best and exact demo.

For Demo Import you need to go in Appearance → Import Demo Content. You will see the available demo. Choose the demo you would like to install and wait without doing anythings until demo import process completes. After completion system will pop up the message of successfully imported.

 

FOR EXISTING WORDPRESS USERS :

We do not recommend Demo Import options for an existing user. Rather you can go to Appearance → customize and give some time to customize your website using available options.

However If your site has old data and you importing a demo, then you should not freak out about old data. Your old data will not be removed or replaced. You have to go to Dashboard → Appearance → Import Demo Content.

 

After navigating to Import Demo Content, you will see different available demos. You can live preview from there and import also. Click on the Import button to import demo data. Lean back and wait for approximately 3-5 minutes, depending upon various factors. That’s all you need to do. When demo import is done, now its time to setup blog page, widgets, banner, menu and a few other settings according to your requirements.

 

IMPORTANT NOTE: 

If your site content is empty (no posts/pages), you have nothing to do more. But if your site has posts/pages, you have to use a plugin Regenerate Thumbnails to generate necessary thumbnails for GuCherry Blog Theme. You can install Regenerate Thumbnails from Dashboard → Appearance → Plugins → Add New. Search for Regenerate Thumbnails, install plugin and activate it. (Install & use this plugin only after installing and importing demo.) Check the image below for reference:
