The importer should be run only once. If something went wrong and you need to import the content again, you may need to reset your WordPress.
Use this plugin to reset the WordPress database : http://wordpress.org/plugins/wordpress-database-reset/

If the import stalls and fails to respond after a few minutes, or it fails with a simple error message like “Import failed,” You are suffering from PHP configuration limits that are set too low to complete the process. You should contact your web host and ask them to increase those limits to a minimum as follows:

  • max_execution_time 3600
  • max_input_time 3600
  • memory_limit 256M
  • post_max_size 64M
  • upload_max_filesize 64M
  • max_input_vars 3000

You can verify your PHP configuration limits by installing a simple plugin found here. And you can also check your PHP error logs to see the exact error being returned.

Also if possible update your PHP version to 5.6+

After doing this you can reset your database using the WordPress Database Reset Plugin and try to re-import the demo data ( WARNING : Reset the database will make you lost all the data of your current wordpress )

If you still have problem your web host may uses process watching software that prevents bulk processing on their web servers.

If you have problem please submit a ticket and we will help you to import the demo.

See example of demo icon boxes: - See demo example

We have created full list with icon shortcodes. Please see following link with icons list: Simple line icons


Child Theme

Structial comes with a Child Theme.
Simply install structial-child.zip like a regular WordPress theme.

What is a Child Theme?

A child theme is a theme that inherits the functionality of another theme, called the parent theme. Child themes allow you to modify, or add to the functionality of that parent theme. A child theme is the best, safest, and easiest way to modify an existing theme, whether you want to make a few tiny changes or extensive changes. Instead of modifying the theme files directly, you can create a child theme and override within.

Why use a Child Theme?

If you modify an existing theme and it is updated, your changes will be lost. With a child theme, you can update the parent theme (which might be important for security or functionality) and still keep your changes. It’s a great way to get started if you are just learning WordPress theme development.

You need to use a Child Theme only if you are making code customizations.

Auto theme update

Earlier we mentioned activating your theme with license key it's the easiest way for updates.
If you have your theme activated, follow the steps below to update your theme:

Step 1 - When a new version is released, you'll see notification on your admin dashboard with UPDATE button. ( see screenshots below)

Step 2 - Click on UPDATE button, this will take you to theme activation page.

Step 3 - Click on Donwload and install update button.
( see screenshots below)

Step 4 - Once you click on Download and install update do not refresh your page, this process should take less than a 5 minutes to update your theme.

Also you can click on Appereance > Theme activation > Download and install update button (see image below)

If you still see this notification after successful update, you can ignore it. This notification will go away after couple of minutes. This happens often, because of the server caching.

If you think your website takes too much time to load maybe you should.

  1. Install a Cache Plugin for WordPress. We recommend W3 Total Cache.
  2. Install an Image Compress Plugin. We recommend WP Smush It.
  3. Install a Database Optimizer Plugin We recommend WP Optimize
  4. Reduce the number of posts on the page
  5. Reduce the number of unnecessary plugins.
