Note: If you have demo ideas or requests, please contact us.
Demo data is just content that’s pre-defined already in one of our demos. It’s helpful when you don’t want to start working from scratch.
Importing demos is pretty straightforward and simple and will install plugin dependencies along the way.
To import pre-made sites, you need to register Rey with purchase code generated by ThemeForest. To register, either follow the Setup wizard or simply access the theme’ dashboard in WordPress backend > Rey Theme.
Access Rey Theme > Premade Sites submenu item. Here you will find all the demos listed, eg:
Simply click on one of the demo data’s Import button and a popup confirmation should display, asking to choose what plugins to install and what type of sample data.
When you import the data, the following things might happen:
- Please click on the Import button only once and wait, it can take a couple of minutes for the import to be finished.
- No existing posts, pages, categories, images, custom post types or any other data will be deleted or modified.
- Posts, pages, images, widgets, menus and other theme settings will get imported.
- If you import the same demo, the content will be duplicated.
If you want to keep the existing site data, you can access Rey theme > Premade Sites and just import the other demo. This method might cause some issues in the sense there might be duplicated pages and content and sadly there’s no way of an automatic cleanup, just manual.
If you want to start completely from scratch, you can use WP Reset plugin and wipe off everything (database only, files remain) and start again by activating Rey theme and following the wizard steps as well as importing the other demo eventually.
Here’s a quick video here https://d.pr/v/1074Ap importing a Header, Footer and Homepage in another demo eg: Tokyo > Athens .
As you can see Rey’s template library is being used to import Elementor built parts of the site.
In case importing throwing an Internal Server Error, please try inserting the code line below in the child theme’s functions.php or (if no child theme active) in wp-config.php file and paste the following line (somewhere before WP_DEBUG ex: https://d.pr/i/VJKTRY ):
This increases how many items to import per task. By default it’s 8. Basically it increases the processing but should stay in the 30s default php timeout setting.
