Importing the Flourish Sample Content & Library:

From your WordPress admin panel, cick the Tools > Import link in your WordPress Dashboard. This will bring you to a new page with a list of import types. Click the “WordPress” link to download and install the importer.

Once the importer plugin has been installed, click the Tools > Import > WordPress link again to open the importer. You will see an option to upload an XML file. Click the “Choose File” link and locate the flourish-content.xml file from your Flourish download package. Complete the import dialog to finalize the import and add all pages, posts & content.

Before leaving the import page, you’ll want to import the Divi Library. Just as before, click the “Choose File” link and located the flourish-library.xml file and complete the import to add the items to your library.

Visit Pages or Posts to confirm that your sample content has been imported. Also visit the Divi > Divi Library page to confirm that your library items have been imported.


(Optional) Flourish Customizer Settings:

If you would like to match the look of the Flourish demo, you’ll need to import the customizer settings. Located inside the Flourish download package, you’ll find a flourish-export.dat file. This file contains the theme’s live demo Customizer options.

To import these options and set up your Customizer like the demo, first install and activate the Customizer Export/Import WordPress plugin, available as a free download. After installing and activating the plugin, head to your Theme Customizer and look for the Export/Import section – typically located at the bottom of the screen.

Locate the flourish-export.dat file and add that file into the uploader within the Export/Import section of the Theme Customizer and press the “Import” button.
