I can't import theme demo / dummy data. Demo data does not work correctly.

If you see that demo content import process loading forever, got not all content imported or incorrectly working demo content this means your hosting PHP.ini limits too low for working with WordPress Importer and demo data can't be imported on your hosting without correct configuration.

You should contact your web hosting support and ask them to increase those limits in PHP.ini to this values:

  • max_execution_time = 300 (600 recommended)
  • memory_limit = 128M (256M recommended)
  • post_max_size = 32M
  • upload_max_filesize = 32M
  • max_input_vars = 2000

This settings required by Revolution Slider plugin and other plugins to import all demo sliders (this take a lot of time) and all images. This requirements does not have any relations to theme.

You can verify your PHP configuration limits by installing PHP Info Plugin

Before reimporting demo data after changing values reset your WordPress using this plugin to avoid content dublicates.

Cheap or bad shared hosting may not allow you to use this values, check our hosting recommendation here.

Check this official WordPress article how to increase memory limits for your WP:

Downloading ALL images can take 5-20 minutes depending on your hosting performance.

If you can't import demo data and can't change values on your hosting use import without downloading attachment images.

The most easy and fast way to download demo data with all content is using local web server (MAMP for example) on your PC/MAC and then transfer it to your real website.
