Should you wish to import demo content from our theme demos, we have a WordPress plugin designed just for this.

To begin, please install and activate the Starter Sites plugin.

Once the plugin is active, navigate to ‘Appearance’ > ‘Starter Sites’ to browse and import the available website demos.

There is currently a selection of website demo content available for our WordPress themes, with more being added all the time.

For more information please see WP Starter Sites.

Child Themes

If you wish to modify any of our themes, you are welcome to do so, but we recommend that you use a child theme rather than modifying the theme directly.

If you modify a theme’s internal files or functions directly and later the theme is updated, then your custom modifications may be lost.

Please not this does not apply to the type of customizations made using the Customizer or your page content as these customizations are not affected when updating the theme, only to advanced modifications of the theme’s internal files such as PHP files or the functions within those files.

By using a child theme you can modify or add to the child theme’s files and this will ensure that your modifications are preserved whenever the parent theme is updated.

We have created ready to go child themes for you to download and use as is, or modify for your own needs.

If you would like to read more about child themes in WordPress, a good starting point is the website here.
