Theme Demo Importer | Themely | content,data,demo,import,widgets


Quickly import theme live demo content, widgets and settings. This provides a basic layout to build your website and speed up the development process.

This plugin will create a page in APPEARANCE > Import Demo Content.

If the theme you are using does not have any predefined import files, then you will be presented with three file upload inputs.

First one is required and you will have to upload a demo content XML file, for the actual demo import.

The second one is optional and will ask you for a WIE or JSON file for widgets import. You create that file using the Widget Importer & Exporter plugin.

The third one is also optional and will import the customizer settings, select the DAT file which you can generate from Customizer Export/Import plugin (the customizer settings will be imported only if the export file was created from the same theme).

This plugin is based off the ‘One Click Demo Import’ plugin by @capuderg and @cyman,

As well as the improved WP Import 2.0 plugin by @humanmade,
