Setup And Configuration ↑ Back to top

Install the Plugins ↑ Back to top

Upon theme activation you will be prompted to install the plugins required by the theme.

  • WooCommerce (required) — Since Block Shop is a WooCommerce based theme, having the plugin activate is a must.
  • One Click Demo Import (recommended) — Help you import dummy content and replicate the live demo. The plugin can be deactivated and deleted after the demo content is imported.

Stay worry free if you won’t see this notification, it only means the plugins are already installed and activated.

  1. Click Begin Installing Plugins
  2. Select the two plugins, choose the Install Option and click Apply.
  3. Return to dashboard and you’re ready to proceed with the Demo Content Import.
    Since WooCommerce just got activated, you will be prompted to go through the WooCommerce Setup Wizard.

 

Demo Content Import ↑ Back to top

After installing the plugins (‘WooCommerce‘ and ‘One Click Demo Import‘) the theme is ready to begin importing the demo content. Your WordPress administration dashboard will now display a notification allowing you to start the process.

  1. Click Begin Importing
  2. Click Import Demo Data. The automatic process of importing the demo content will now start. The theme comes with the necessary content, so, there’s no need to find, upload, download any other files, just sit back and relax, it usually takes a minute or two.
  3. That’s it, all done! The ‘One Click Demo Import’ plugin can be deactivated now. It has done its job and it’s no longer needed. You should be able to start working on your site.
