Import Demos

Importing Demos

The demo importer allows you to import any of the demos seen on the demo site with one click. This is the easiest way to setup your site because it will allow you to quickly edit everything instead of creating templates from scratch. The demo data imports templates, posts, pages, categories, media and menus. It will not overwrite your existing content.

  1. Go to Magzine > Import Demos.
  2. Hover over the demo you want to import and click the Select button to open the import popup window.
  3. The window shows all the plugins used in this demo. It is recommend you click the Install or Activate link next to each plugin to fully replicate the demo.
  4. Below this you will see what demo content is being imported. It is recommend you leave all checkboxes checked to fully replicate the demo.
  5. Click the blue Import to import the demo content.
  6. Once the import is complete click the Set as Homepage button to set the demo page as your homepage.

If you can’t import the demos this is usually because your server’s specifications are too low. Increase the PHP Memory Limit and PHP Maximum Execution and limit the number of cores using MAGICK_THREAD_LIMIT.

Every time you import a demo the menu items are reimported so it is recommended you uncheck the Menus checkbox in the demo import window. If you want to remove the imported menu items go to Appearance > Menus and manually delete the duplicated links or you can quickly remove them using the Quick remove menu item plugin.

Editing Demos

Once you’ve imported the demos you’ll probably want to edit the templates and colors.

Editing Templates

  1. Go to Magzine > Website Builder.
  2. Now you can edit any of the templates used in the demo you imported.

Editing Colors

  1. All colors used by elements in the imported demos such as links, buttons, backgrounds etc can be changed globally from Magzine > Settings > Style > Global Colors.
  2. Changing these colours will change any element in the theme using them.
  3. You can overwrite the global colors and instead change colors for individual elements. Press the back button at the top of the Global Colours menu to change the colors for the major areas of the theme.
  4. By default you will see each color has a blue globe icon next it, hovering over it shows what global color it is using. You can either select a different global color or set a color just for this element.
  1. To edit the colors for individual templates, such as the colors of a review box, go to Magzine > Website Builder.
  2. Find the template you want, hover over the link and click Edit with Elementor link.
  3. Now click on the specific element you want to edit and from the left select the global color or individual color you want to use.
