[Closed] Import Demo not working
Import Demo (I tried twice) gives an error "Not found (404)". I have installed and activated all required plugins.
Wordpress 5.3 and Cream Blog Pro 1.1.8.
Thanks for any assistance. I also sent an email to support.
We apologize for the late response. And thank you for your comments. We appreciate it very much.
We read your mail. We tried to import the demo contents of 5 and 8 demos. The demos contents successfully imported.
We do not know what went wrong when you tried to import demo contents. 404 error occurs when a resource could not be found.
Could you tell us if the demo import fails for 5th and 8th demos or for other demos too? When the demo fails, could you check the log file which is inside "Media" on your WordPress dashboard? The log file contains the actions that happen during the import of demo content. Could you send us the contents of the log file at firstname.lastname@example.org? It would be helpful.
Hi, thanks for the reply,
I did not have WP Debug turned on. Nevertheless, I'm attaching the log from my hosting provider -- it looks like there's some data connected to the attempted import on Dec 6.
I am a little reluctant to try again with Debug on, because I've come pretty far in figuring out the formatting, and I've imported a bunch of posts from another WP site, so cleaning out the demo, if it is successful, is a lot of extra work I'm not sure I need now. Does that make sense?
Thank you for your response.
We will go through the log file later & improve demo importer if required. We tried to import demos & all worked fine in our end. We only recommend importing demo data only in the fresh WordPress.
Yes, I agree with you. Demo data is just intended to help users to get started quickly with some dummy pages, posts, media & categories. By skipping this part you still can easily build your website just like the demo. If you already have pages, posts, categories, media it is always better to ignore importing demo data contents.
You will find all the layout, colour, typography & other options at customizer. We do have few widgets at Dashboard > Appearances > Widgets.
I think this helps.
Please feel free to ask us questions if you need any help later.
Have a great day.
Thank you! I'm enjoying the theme so far. As with many themes that leverage a third-party block system (in your case, Gutentor) I think the documentation could do a better job of laying out the basic options for Home and for regular pages, making clear what options are within Customizer and which are in the block system. Also reminding people to choose the preferred page template.
By the way, what is "Gutentor Canvas?"
