With the Monk theme, you have the option to either start creating your site from scratch, or choose to import one of the included demo sites to use as a starting point, and then modify it to suit your needs. In this section, we will explain how to do the latter.
Importing WordPress demo content
Login to your WordPress admin panel
Navigate to Admin Dashboard > Tools > Import > WordPress > Run importer
From the Import dropdown menu, choose the demo site that you would like to import. The file is named 'monk-wordpress-dummy.xml' and is located in dummyData directory.
If you also wish to import media files (images, videos), make sure to set the Import attachments option to "Yes".
Click on the Import button and wait for the import process to finish.
Importing customization demo content
To finalize your demo content, please install Customizer Export/Import plugin. To do this please take a look at this guide here:
Once you've installed the plugin. Head over to Admin Dashboard > Customize > Import and select the file named monk-export-demo-one.dat
Select 'Download and import image files?' when uploading the file.
Why do I see a white screen when importing the demo content?
If you get a white screen or some other error when trying to import our demo content, this probably happens because of the maximum execution time limit. You need to increase the maximum execution time (upload time) setting of your web server. The default maximum execution time on web servers is 30 seconds. Please increase it to 120 seconds. Possible ways of achieving this are:
By Wp-config.php changes - set_time_limit(120);
In htaccess - php_value max_execution_time 120;
In php.ini file - max_execution_time = 120
Ask your hosting provider to take care of this for you. If you need further help on this topic, please reach out to our support.
