    Importing Sample Content

    Importing sample content is optional, but may help you understand where things should go. To import sample content including posts, pages, menu items and widgets, you’ll need to extract the theme zip file to your computer. In the folder that is extracted there is a “demo” folder and within that folder are two separate files. One for sample content and the other for widgets.

    3. Look for WordPress at the bottom and click Install Now.

    WIE File
    • widgets.wie is located within the demo folder once extracting the theme
