WordPress Avada Theme 3.8+ Demo Content: What Is It & How To Use It (Avada Theme) | WP Learning Lab

How to install a premium theme from ThemeForest.net: https://youtu.be/5gwRfw2YjIg

In this tutorial walkthrough I’m going to show you how to install Avada theme demo content for version 3.8 of the Avada theme. The process is similar for many other themes, so even if you’re not using Avada you can still learn something in this video!

Avada is a premium theme listed on ThemeForest.net and it comes with premium theme demo content. However, premium wordpress themes aren’t the only ones with demo content. You can find many themes in the WordPress repository that allow you to import WordPress demo content.

Why is demo content valuable?

Good question. When you see a theme in the repository or on a third party website it usually looks amazing. If it didn’t look amazing the developer wouldn’t make any sales. The problem is that when you install a theme it usually looks nothing like the sample site that you fell in love with. That’s where installing demo content comes in.

Demo content is an easy way for the developer to give you the files necessary to replicate their sample site exactly. Once replicated, you can then tweak the pages as desired. This is much faster than starting from scratch.

There are a couple ways to import theme demo content in WordPress:

1. Using the WordPress Import plugin and uploading an XML file.

2. Uploading a file into the theme settings panel.

3. Clicking a button in the theme settings panel. This is by far the easiest method for the end user and it’s the one that the Avada theme developers provide.

Your theme’s documentation will tell you which method to use. The documentation will also link to the files you need to upload.

Once you know which upload method your theme uses and where the files are, it’s just a simple matter of uploading them. Piece of cake.

Demo content imported, now what?

Once the demo content is on your site then the hard work begins. The Avada theme, for example, imports over 140 different pages as part of the demo content. So you have sift through them all to find the pages you want to keep and delete the rest.

This does take a bit of time, but it’s less time than you would need to create those pages from scratch.

When you have just the pages you want on your site you can start tweaking them to meet your needs.

That, my friends, is how you take advantage of demo content.
