Demo ImportLatest update: March 24, 2019 | Reading time: 2 to 3 minutes
It is most likely that one of our online demos motivated you to purchase this theme. This demo is available for installation on your website as well, although the images will be blurred due to license restrictions, (in more recent versions, the blurred images have been replaced with image frames, for faster demo import). To import one of the demos, go to Dashboard > Tools > Plethora Demo Importer and select one of the available demos to install. Just follow the on-screen instructions and the demo will be up and running in just a few minutes.
When to Import Demo
If you need a fast deployment, with a ready configuration, just import the demo and modify texts/images/menus to have a website ready to go. This option provides all settings working out of the box, you will only need to modify certain fields and upload your own content, replacing the current one. Also, you can install a demo on a local server to use it as a reference during the development of your online site.
When not to Import Demo
- If you are an experienced developer.
- if you need to create your own design based on our theme.
- if you like a minimal installation (there is an option to deactivate extra post types, fonts libraries, functions etc).
- if you are going to use the design for a single landing page you don’t have to import the demo. All settings are available to create a unique configuration and design.
Removing Demo / Re-Importing
There are cases where you need to remove the imported demo. Either because you’ve messed up in a degree you can’t recall the original settings, or because you decided to deploy from scratch, or even because for some reason the demo failed to install, you don’t have to install WordPress again. Thanks to the Reset Database plugin you can reset the installation to its initial state. The plugin provides the option to remove all settings and users or to keep certain writes. After executing the Reset, you can import the demo again and start developing from scratch.
