Importing Ampersand Live Preview Files & Theme Options

We have created a folder labeled “Demo Content” that contains a complete export of the live demo, and you can upload the XML file by navigating to Tools > Import.

Once you’ve opened the Import page, you need to click the “WordPress” link: WordPress – Install the WordPress importer to import posts, pages, comments, custom fields, categories, and tags from the WordPress export file.

You will get a pop-up the first time you do this prompting you to install the “WordPress Importer”. Click Install Now, and once you install the plugin, click Activate Plugin & Run Importer.

From here you will need to click Choose File and select the .xml file, and click Upload file and import.

You will then be prompted to Assign Authors. You can read the description at the top of the window to find out more about assigning authors. Note: Make sure you Import Attachments.

Check the box Download and import file attachments, as this will download attachments for images included in the the live demo preview. You now just need to wait for the importer to finish. This might take a few minutes depending on your hosting server speed.

Navigate to Appearance -> Theme Options -> Backup Options to upload theme options.

Once you open the Backup page, you will need to select all the code under the “Transfer Theme Options Data” and replace it with the code provided in theme-options.txt file in our Demo Content folder.

Once you paste the code from the .txt document, click Import Options and you’re done.
