Importing California Live Preview Files & Theme Options

We created a folder labeled “Demo Content” that contains an export of the Live Preview. Navigate to Tools > Import to upload the XML file.

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

The first time you do this you will get a pop-up prompting you to install the “WordPress Importer”. You will need to click “Install Now”. After you’re done installing the WordPress Importer, you need to click “Activate Plugin & Run Importer”.

From here you will just need click “Choose File” and select the xxxxxx.xml file. Then click “Upload file and import”.

You will then be prompted to Assign Authors. You can read the description at the top as this explains everything. Note: Make sure you Import Attachments.

Check the box “Download and import file attachments”. This will download attachments for images included in the Live Preview demo.

You now just need to wait for the import to finish. This might take a few minutes depending on your hosting server speed.

Navigate to Appearance -> Theme Options -> Backup Options to import the theme options

On 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 Demo Content folder.

After you paste the code from the .txt document just click Import Options and you’re done!
