Demo Content

If you haven’t created your own content (posts, projects or menu items) yet, some UI kit sections such as blog, portfolio, or menu, may not display properly like in our demo.

For this reason there is a possibility to import demo content from our UI kit to your website.

All files can be found in the downloaded package in the Demo Content folder. You can import individual content via WordPress Importer.

Go to Dashboard > Tools > Import and click Install Now at WordPress importer. After installation click Run Importer.

Select user, check Download and import file attachments and Submit.
