Prebuilt Avada Websites Alternate Import Method

09/09/2020

Avada comes with multiple prebuilt websites that can be imported with one click, through our prebuilt website importer. This method relies on the proper server configurations, so please check the System Status tab to view any areas of concern, marked in red. There could be rare occasions when the importer will not work, and you need to try an alternate method. Please read below for information on how to import prebuilt websites through our alternate method.

WARNING: Your site database will reset entirely using this alternative import method.

How To Import Prebuilt Websites Through The Alternate Method

Step 1 – Install the required and recommended plugins for the prebuilt website you want to import. For example, Avada Core, Avada Builder, Revolution Slider, Layer Slider and any others that may be listed.

Step 4 – Navigate to the All-in-One WP Migration > Import tab on your WordPress admin sidebar.

Step 5 – Click on the Import From button, and choose File. Select the backup file you’ve just downloaded.

Step 6 – Once your import is finished, you will receive a warning that says the import process will overwrite your entire site database. Click the Continue button to proceed.

Step 7 – You will receive a success message once you’ve successfully imported the data. Click the ‘Close’ button to return to the plugin page.

Step 8 – Once the update is complete, click Continue. You need to log back into the WordPress admin area using the following username/password details:

If you’re experiencing styling issues, such as incorrect fonts, broken columns or unaligned sections, this may be because the Global Options haven’t loaded properly.
