Hi There

trying to install Trendy theme with demo content, but there is no Quickstart on download page. There is XML file, but that is not working. When I install theme, all looks fine, and when I add XML file homepage is fully ruined and broken and does not look good at all, not functional even.

Is there a Quickstart file for Trendy theme?
If not how can I get all demo files working on my webiste?

Thank you for your help.

Hi,
At this point, we are not release the Quickstart package as the previous versions. If you want to install the theme and get all the content as our demo, you can upload the theme.zip package and use the XML file.
After importing XML file, you can install some following plugin:

  • Contact Form 7
  • Page Builder by SiteOrigin
  • WooCommerce
  • WordPress Importer
  • YITH WooCommerce Compare
  • YITH WooCommerce Wishlist
    You can find here for the document guide on how to configure the theme:http://www.designwall.com/guide/dw-trendy/
    If you have any question, please let us know.
    Hope this helps !

Well, the problem is it does not work at all.

I think there is an issue with outdated example xml and other plugins. But when I make brand new WordPress install and add only DW Trendy and needed plugins and import XML, lot of files on XML fail to import due to some error and homepage (and all pages) looks terrible.
Please check screenshots.

Hi Dominic,

Can I please ask you for favor? As I really want to set homepage as on your demo, so I can see how to use all different settings – could you just send me file with homepage as xml? Or just copy all HTML from the home page inside demo site and send it to me? Just something simple that I can quickly open and see how is homepage made (type of boxes used, css, etc).

This would be the fastest way for me to get homepage to work. Thank you.

Hi Dean.

Sorry for the installation inconvenience.

For the first question about product data, you need activate WooCommerce plugin before importing the sample-data.xml file.

For your another question about homepage layout, I have added a Prebuilt layout to DW Trendy 1.1.7. Please follow steps below to setup your homepage look like our demo:

PS: You can find DW Trendy 1.1.7 package in your designwall’s profile

Hi Jackie

Awesome! That worked. Looks nice now.

Question: how do you create tiny line between boxes/panels? for the example latest tweets and newsletter subscription box close the the bottom of homepage?

Thanks a lot again.

Even when I add new widget to this homepage layout I don’t get that nice tiny grey line before and after title of the widget. How you create all those nice tiny lines, in title and between widgets?

To add tiny grey line between row and column, you can click “Edit row” and then insert this class name into Attributes > Row Class: wide-grey-top-middle

Some other classes you can use: wide-gray-top-bottom, wide-gray-top, wide-gray-bottom, wide-gray-middle, wide-gray-top-middle
