1.3 Importing Demo Content

If you've installed and activated theme and all required plugins, you homepage should look like this:

You're ready to start adding your content and creating your own blog. If you want to have the same.

If you want to have the same content on your website as Live Preview of Holomatic theme, you'll need to import demo content. To do that please go to   Tools ->  Import -> WordPress, install plugin if prompted and then select file "extras/import.xml". You'll find it in "All files & documentation"

Notice

All photos included with import file are just plain gray color, as they are copyrighted files purchased on Stock sites and cannot be included in the package.

By default the Holomatic  doesn't include the demo page templates used in preview - all types of layouts can be configured  in Theme Settings -  that's done to not over-complicate it and to not confuse users. If you however need to use it  to show for example to your client - copy the files from extras/templates/  to your wp-content/themes/holomatic. Without it all the layouts types in Home submenu will be empty static pages.

You'll learn how to configure layout in next sections of this documentation.

If you've selected import.xml in the Imported, go through each step of the process until you'll see confirmation the process ended successfully.

Now you need to setup menu.

If your import was successful, please go to   Appearance -> Menus and in Manage Locations and for 'Primary Menu' choose "Main Menu", than save.

Next, you should setup your permalinks to look pretty. You can go to  Settings  > Permalinks, choose the Custom Structure, and use this: /%category%/%postname%/

You're demo page should be more or less ready by now. You can now play with the settings in Appearance -> Customize, and Appearance -> Theme Options
