To import one of the demo, go to WP-Admin > Ironband > Import Default Data. Click Get Available Demos, then choose the demo you want in the dropdown list. 

This will flush your current content (pages, images, texts)  to be replaced by the full demo's content. Be aware.

If you have any issues with the “Import Default Data” tool, here is an alternative but first, let me explain why you cannot import our dummy data if you use the “Import Default Data” tool.

In most case, the issue is caused by your server’s set time limit.

Basically, when you import default data, your server will “download” the dummy data from OUR server: A script is fired to do this action, right ? Script can runs for a certain period of time and after this period, the connection is lost. This is a security precaution. By default, the limit is set to 30 seconds. When you download the dummy datas from our demos, it can takes 3 to 10 minutes to download, depending your server connection speed. So 30 seconds is way not enough.

The good news is that this limit can be changed.

Try any of the method above:

1. Edit your wp-config.php and add:

Important – If you are making changes in wp-config.php, then add this line above the line: “/* That’s all, stop editing! Happy blogging. */” comment.

2. In htaccess

php_value max_execution_time 600

3. Addition in php.ini file

max_execution_time = 600 ;

After this, try to import default data again. If it still doesnt work, here’s an alternative:



STEP 1 – Import the data manually

Use the default wordpress importer (tools > import > wordpress). You might have to install the plugin if you are using it for the first time. Then, you will be able to import the XML file (which is located in ironband/import/) 

STEP 4 – Assign the homepage, the blog page and the menu

Make sure to go to Settings > Reading and make sure the “Front page” is assigned to Home and the “Posts page” assigned to Blog.

Then, go to Appearance > Menu > Manage Location and make sure your “Main Menu” is assigned to Main menu
You’re all set !
