  2. Install & Activate Recommended Plugins

    After the theme is activated, a list of recommended plugins will be displayed at the top of the WordPress admin area. Install and activate those plugins by selecting 'Begin installing plugins'.

  3. Import the Demo XML File

    Once the plugins are installed and activated, upload the demo content XML file with the WordPress importer. This file will be located within the 'All files & documentation' download package in your Envato Marketplace account's download area.

    Notice: Check the 'Download and import file attachments' option after clicking 'Upload file and import'. This will import demo images. It may take a couple extra minutes to import but it'll be worth it.

  4. Assign Home and Blog Pages

  5. From the Reading Settings of your WordPress site, assign the Home page as the 'Front page' and the Blog page as the 'Posts page'.
