    Hi

    I would like to test different demo layouts to import on my site.

    I want to keep my content and all other settings to stay the same, is this possible? How is the safest way to do this?

    Kind regards

    Hi Matthias, 

    Do you want to test only a new home page structure? 

    Kind Regards,

    Hi Matthias, 

    At this moment this is not implemented, but I can help you with this. Please tell me the name of the demo that you want to use and I will attach to this ticket the slider object file and the xml import for the home page only. This will not overwrite the global theme settings, but you will have the home page structure. 

    Kind Regards,
    Alex

    Hi Alex

    And if I want to change between e.g. "Rocks" theme and "Creative" theme for my whole website to compare. Will I lose my content if I do that?

    Hi Matthias, 

    No, you will not loose your existing content, but you might have some data overwritten. On import process, all the content is imported and your theme settings will be overwritten. 

    Kind Regards,
    Alex

    Hi Alex

    I tried to change to a different demo layout and run in all sorts of problems that I had to reroll.

    Could you please give a more detailed explanation on how to switch between the different demo layouts that you offer? This is an important feature of your product, that is currently very vague to use without problems.

    HI Matthias,

    Can you please offer more details about the problems you met? 

    On each demo import, the theme settings are changed to make the website look exactly like the demo. The posts and media files are imported and the home page is changed. From my point of view, renaming the home page should be enough to be able to have all the demos in the same time and switch between them.

    Kind Regards,
    Alex
