Importing Demo Content

Some buyers like to install their theme and have it look exactly like the preview site. If this is something you would like to do, then follow the steps in this section. This step is optional so feel free to skip it. The subsequent sections will provide all the instructions you need to insert your own content manually.

The dummy content inserted in this step will not contain the beautiful images seen in the demo. These images cannot be included because they are commercial images, which we have purchased for theme demonstration only and we do not have a redistribution license for these assets.

  1. Install and activate the AweMotel theme. (See section above)

  2. Go to the Tool > Import

  3. Click the large orange Run Importer
