An import file containing demo content is now available for sites using the Memberlite Theme. The demo content covers basic theme features as well as the shortcodes available in the Memberlite Shortcodes plugin.


Downloading the Demo Content

The demo content file (.xml) is available on the Memberlite Theme website. We’ll continue to update and enhance the demo file as more features are added to the theme or as requests for a demonstration of specific theme features are made.


How to Set Up Your Demo Site

Demo content can be imported into a new or existing WordPress site. Just follow the steps below, omitting any steps that you already have completed for an existing site.

Be sure to make a backup of your site if you already have settings and content that you might want to revert to. [guide]
  1. Install and Activate Theme

  2. Install and Activate Plugins

  3. Import the Demo Content

  4. Set Up Paid Memberships Pro Levels & Pages

    • The theme demo is designed to reference three basic levels. You can simply name them Bronze, Silver, Gold and set any pricing. [level setup docs]
    • After setting up the levels, under the Memberships > Pages tab, click the link to generate the membership pages. [page setup docs]
  5. Assign the Menu

    • Navigate to Appearance > Menus
    • Assign the imported “Primary Menu” to the “Primary Menu” theme location.
  6. Assign the Static Front Page

    • Navigate to Appearance > Customize > Static Front Page
    • Set “Front Page displays” to “a static page”.
    • Assign “Home” to the “Front page”
    • Assign “Blog” to the “Posts page”

Note that you cannot undo the import. If you are working on an existing site, you may want to take a data backup before beginning the steps above.
