It is quite frustrating, especially for the beginners who now have to start with looking for documentation file or theme tutorials. This is when the theme demo import option comes handy.

  1. I already have content on my site, I just want to try the theme. What will happen if I run ThemeGrill Demo Importer? Will the demo content be mixed up with existing content? Will it replace it? Does it even make a sense to run the plug in? Or I’d be better get a manual somewhere and do it manually ( 🙂 – don’t want to)

    1. Hello Zanuda,
      We do not recommend importing the demo site on the site with existing content as there might be conflict on the contents and hence design issues.

  2. Its awesome experience i have installed it,as a beginner i couldnt afford premium theme so installed free theme and later i would definately upgrade it to pro version.

  3. Hey, thanks for the guide. I have an issue however. After importing the demo and ‘live preview’ it, my preview page doesn’t have a slider working, i.e. all images and their captions stack on top of one another when they’re supposed to be sliding.

    Any ideas?

  4. Themegrill themes are one of the best lite themes in WordPress. Thank you for incorporating option of one-click demo installation and that too for free themes.
