Making theme look like demo ↑ Back to top
First download the zip file containing the demo content here. Inside the package you will find a file named bass.WordPress.xml that you can use to import the demo content.
- In your Dashboard go to Tools > Import.
- Choose WordPress importer from the list. If you have not installed it already, you need to install it first.
- Click Run Importer.
- Click Choose File and browse for the bass.WordPress.xml file you downloaded and upload it.
- You will be asked to map the authors in this export file to users on the blog. For each author, you may choose to map to an existing user on the blog or to create a new user.
- You will then have the choice to import attachments, so check the Download and import file attachments box.
Please be patient while WordPress imports all the content.
You will need to assign the menus a theme location & you’ll need to configure widget blocks. This is a limitation of WordPress’ import system.

Setting up the menus ↑ Back to top
This theme has five menu locations.
