Imagely 2.0 is a new theme; if you want to migrate your site that already contains posts and pages, please read this document: Migrating from Imagely Themes to Imagely 2.0
Importing the demo
Import Content, style, widgets, and sample galleries from the desired Imagely 2.0 theme (check our demos). You can import only the styling of the theme and skip the demo data.
- Use the "Import Now" button to import the style and widgets from that demo.
- Required plugins: During this step, you might need to install the required plugins. You need to install and activate them all before going to the next step.
- Once those plugins are active, click on the "Go to the next step" button.
- If you want to import all the demo from scratch the demo, we recommend doing that on a clean WordPress install.
- If you want to avoid duplicated content or galleries, only check "Import Design" and "Import Widgets" options to avoid duplicated content if you already have content on your site.
- The import process will take some time. When you see this message, "Demo imported!", it means that the process has been completed.
- Optional: We recommend adjusting the Permalinks to use "Post Name" instead of using "Plain".
After you completed your installation and you are happy with the way the theme looks, please, perform a full website backup.
