1. Demo content

Although being an optional step, importing the demo content is an easy way to get a quickstart with your website. Steps shown in this video:
  • Download this demo xml file;
  • Go to Tools > Import;
  • Click on WordPress from the list and install the Importer if you don't have it already;
  • Once installed and activated, click on Choose file;
  • Select the xml file you downloaded and click on Upload file and import.
Please note: Importing the demo content will add all texts and images on your site from all our demo layouts.

2. Front page settings

If you're planning to create a site for your business, you'll probably want to have a static front page set. Steps shown in this video:

  • Create a new page, name it however you want and assign the Builder page template to it;
  • Create another page that will hold you blog posts. Name it however you want but don't assign a page template to it;
  • Go to Customize > Static Front Page and select A Static Page from the radio;
  • Set your front page and your blog page from the Front Page and Posts Page dropdowns.

3. Prebuilt layouts

Loading prebuilt layouts is easy in Tora. Steps shown in the video:
  • Create a new page, name it however you want and assign the Builder page template to it;
  • Load the layout you want;
  • Publish the page.
Please note: if you haven't imported the demo content you'll get just the structure when loading a prebuilt layout, without any post types or images.

6. Social menu

To setup a social menu in the header you need to follow these steps:

  • Go to Appearance > Menus;

In-page scrolling means that the browser will scroll to a section of a page when clicking on a button or a menu item. This video shows how you can achieve this with menu links.
