Import Widgets

There is a handy little plugin that will instantly load all of the widgets from your theme demo right onto your site. It’ll save you tons of time and make your theme setup process a whole lot easier! Who doesn’t love easy?

If you prefer to set up all of your widgets manually (you adventurous person, you!), instructions for every widget is provided in the Theme Documentation for your theme.

How to Import Widgets

  1. Before you import your widgets, be sure that you have installed and activated all of the recommended plugins for your theme.
  2. Go to Plugins > Add New. Install and activate the Widget Importer & Exporter plugin.
  3. Go to Tools > Widget Importer and Exporter.
  4. Under Import Widgets, click Choose File. Select the {yourtheme}-widgets.wie file in the “demo” folder in your theme and upload it. {yourtheme} will actually say the name of your theme, i.e. uptown-widgets.wie
  5. All the widgets from the demo will be imported to your Widgets page.
