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 an “xml” folder and within that folder are two separate XML files. One for posts, pages, menus, and images, and if not using IDX, sample listings for the WP Listings plugin. You will also find two “wie” files for importing widgets.
