I’ve activated the theme and imported demo “PhotoGallery +Irregular”. I have followed the instructions – deactivated all plugins except the BM Content Builder before start importing Demo but when I view the site to edit the existing content to fit into this new theme, I just see: kenerhlich.net.
My question is – how does the art theme demo handle existing content from a previous theme? how should I proceed? I’m not a web developer but am comfortable navigating blocks and basic editing.
You can reach me on (213) 210-5631.
Thank you.October 22, 2021 at 2:45 am #26010SeaThemeKeymaster
Welcome to SeaTheme forum.
I don’t know what kind of content is built by the previous theme. If the content is built by a special type post(like portfolio), page layout, or different page builder. The content are usually invisible if it turns to a new theme, which is normal. Because different themes support different content(different layouts options, meta names, builder, etc.). You need to re-build content based on a new theme(or plugin). The normal single post(built by WordPress default editor) could be shown in the new theme.October 22, 2021 at 7:12 pm #26018kenehrlichParticipant
Thank you for the reply. The previous site was built with “bloc” theme. Essentially, the Portfolio page functioned as a way of conveying projects with images and descriptive text (more than a simple caption). Projects had category tags so that a category could be filtered to streamline the relevant view. I was hoping that at the very least images would display to save time, but from your reply I am understanding that we need to rebuild the site. I will confer with Ken to see how he wants to proceed and reach out if I have difficulties. One last question, because the demo doesn’t seem to be importing in a way that makes it self-evident on where placeholder images are to replace with our images, would you recommend not using the demo as a starting point? Again, we are NOT web developers and so need it to be as basic wordpress-friendly as possible.

For license reason, the placeholder images(colorful images) replace the demo pictures. You could replace them with your own images (refer to https://doc.seatheme.net/theme/art/installation/installing-art-via-wordpress/#replace-the-placeholders ).
Most layouts (includes placeholders) can be replaced in the BM content builder, which is a WYSIWYG builder that does not require professional technical knowledge. Please refer to (video) https://doc.seatheme.net/sea-content-builder-plugin/bm-content-builder-introduction/#quick-video-guide
