First of all, you will need a working WordPress installation. To install WordPress CMS, please see the WordPress Codex. If you are new to WordPress, following links can help later on the road:

Demo Content Installation

After the theme installation, activation and plugin installation – it is finally time to install some demo content.

The installation is very simple – you just need to figure out which demo content you would like to install. For the best experience it is recommended that your WordPress installation is fresh with a little to no content. But you can definitely install demo content if you already have added some content to your website. Such scenario won’t replace or delete your existing content. Instead some media might be skipped if it matches the one being installed.

To import demo content, please follow these steps:

  • Step 1 – Navigate to Haste dashboard and click on Install Website
  • Step 2 – Choose the demo you would like to import and click Install

  • Step 3 – Make sure that the required plugins are already installed, or check the ones missing. Then click on Continue & Import. Some content may be skipped if the required plugins are not installed. For example forms will be skipped if Contact Form 7 isn’t installed and sliders will be skipped if Slider Revolution isn’t installed
  • Step 4 – Wait for the demo content to import. It could take a few minutes depending on your server resources and demo content size
  • Step 5 – The theme installation is complete when you see the Import Complete window appear. You can see the results by clicking on Visit Site
