Complete Guide To Demo Import
Step 1 - PHP resources
Since WordPress themes get more robust and complex, it's necessary that you release some more power from server. You can do that by editing php.ini file that you can find on your server, or contact your hosting service to do this for you.
Make sure you meet these requrements and please don't skip this step, since it's probably the most important:
max_execution_time = 300; memory_limit = 128M; upload_max_filesize = 128M; post_max_size = 256M;
Step 2 - PHP version
You should also make sure PHP version on your server is updated.
5.6 will do the job, but you may use 7 as well.
Step 3 - Disable Plugins
You should disable ALL plugins except:
-Contact Form 7
-Mikado Core (CPT)
-WooCommerce (if you plan to use shop)
Step 4 - Import
We advise that you do this from Google Chrome, no matter the Operating System.
Go to Mikado Options > Import. On your keyboard press F12 and select "Console" view.
If you wish to import all demo content (pages, posts, widgets, options) you should choose "All" for "Import type" field.
And if you wish to import media library for our theme, check "Yes" for "Import Attachments"
Then hit "Import" and follow console view.
If you see any red error showing up, you should refresh the page and try again.
Repeat the process until demo import is completed, following a successful "Import Completed" message, without errors in the console.
If the progress bar doesn't reach 100%, you can finish the import via XML.
To so so, navigate to Tools > Import > WordPress > Run Importer. Upload the theme-export.xml file, which you can find in the file you downloaded from ThemeForest, in the folder "xml export." If the connection runs out, simply upload it again and again, until you receive the message that import has completed.
Next, in Theme Options > Import, run the import, but ONLY for Widgets and for Options. There is no need to run it for Content again.
Step 5 - Enable Plugins
You should go to Dashboard > Plugins and enable all plugins.
Step 6 (optional) - Remove extra menu items
If you imported demo content multiple times, it's possible that you duplicated menu items several times. You should install this helpful plugin https://wordpress.org/plugins/quick-remove-menu-item/
Then go to Appearance > Menus and remove duplicated menu items.
