Step-3: Import & Go Live

Once you are satisfied, click on the “Import Site” button. Now you can see the same checkbox. By default all options are checked, however you can uncheck them if you want. Let’s explore the options:

Import Site

Importing Settings: First of all, you need to decide whether you want to import the dummy data, post, taxonomy, and featured images. Uncheck this option, if you already have existing content on your site and don’t need dummy data.

The second option is to delete previously imported sites. Check this option if you have previously imported a starter site and want to replace it with the latest import.

The third option is recommended for installing required plugins. Make sure to keep this box checked to allow the installation of important plugins while importing the site.

Templates/Pages: Here, you have the choice to uncheck any of the available pages, templates, or templates that you don’t want to import. Keep it checked if you want to import all page templates.

Once you are ready click on the “Start Importing” button and sit back. Your website will be ready in a few minutes. 

You will see a prompt with the options to view and customize the site after a successful import.

How to Customize After Importing a Starter Site?
