Demo Import

If you want to start off easy and import the entire Lagoon demo site as is, the theme comes with an extremely easy one-click demo import functionality that allows you to recreate the demo site on your WordPress installation in roughly 30 seconds.

Please note: it is highly recommended that you import the demo data onto a newly installed WordPress installation, rather than into an existing website, as this reduces the chance of something breaking to 0%

To start off, after you’ve activated the Lagoon theme, navigate to the Divi menu, and select the Import Lagoon Demo link.

Next, in the importer screen, click the Import button

Now, read through the screen and make sure that you are importing the right data (the Lagoon logo should be displayed, and the demo name should be Default), and click on Yes, Import.

Wait while the demo data is being imported. This usually takes about 30 seconds, but given a variety of factors, could take up to 2 minutes.

If everything went well, you should see the following message:

All done, the Lagoon demo data is now fully imported onto your installation!

How to manually import in case of issues

If you come across any issues while using the one-click importer, you can still quite easily import the demo data by using the One Click Demo Import plugin.

From within your admin dashboard, install and activate the plugin. Then, navigate to Tools > Import and select One Click Demo Import.

In the extract theme folder, you will find a directory named lagoon-demo, and inside of it there are 3 files which you will need:

  • customizer.dat
  • content.xml
  • widgets.wie

Import the files as required by the plugin, and click on Import Demo Data

Should you come across any difficulties during the import process, please get in touch with us. We are also able to install the demo data for you, free of charge.
