Import POFO theme demo

After completion of POFO theme installation & plugins activating, you can start building your awesome WordPress site. It would be easier if you use our demo pages/content/settings instead of start working from scratch. If you wish to use our demo pages/content/settings then you will have to install demo data and settings as per installed theme version demo content and configurations.

Import demo content data including posts, pages, portfolio, products, theme options, widgets, images, sliders etc… It may take several minutes, so please have some patience.

Warning:  Import demo content data including posts, pages, theme customizer, widgets, images, sliders etc… Your existing setup will be replaced with new demo data and settings from the installed theme version demo content and configurations. So we recommend you take the backup of your existing WordPress setup and database for your safety.
