General Settings

General Settings allow you to make adjustments that will be reflected throughout all of your webpages.

Importing Dummy Data: If you are new to wordpress or have problems setting up a site that looks like the Theme Demo, you can import dummy posts and settings here that will help to understand how those tasks are done. There may be several demo versions available for import. Before importing you must select the version you want and then click ‘Import Dummy Data’ button. This will Start importing the demo content and settings. You must be aware that if you have an existing site, it will overwrite your current settings. Also importing the content may take some time, sometimes up to 15 minutes depending on how many images are imported. After you are done importing, the site will look like the one in the demo except the widgets content. Then you can replace the demo content with your real content, and in this way it will take less time to set up your site exactly like the demo site.
