Should Talon open with a sample site?

Hi, I just installed Talon free. It just came with a sample page. Should it have a full sample site like Airi does?
I would like to work with a full sample site otherwise I have nothing to start with, as I’m new at this.
Thanks

Hello,

Did you try to import the demo content as described in Talon documentation here?
https://docs.athemes.com/category/120-talon

Kind Regards, Roman.

Hi Roman,
I have downloaded the plugin “One click demo import”. I am told “There are no predefined import files available in this theme. Please upload the import files manually!”.

This is not good. I would like all the functionality from the start. I am not a web designer which is why I need the demo site.

but I have downloaded the demo content. But that will only get me half of the information according to the manual. Also, it says " Choose a WIE or JSON file for widget import:" - where do I get these? And " Choose a DAT file for customizer import:". Presumably these are needed for full functionality.

It would be much better if i could just download the demo site automatically. I particularly want the button images which take me to a new page. I don’t want to start the site without everything being there.

The manual says:

Option 1: Automatic - Install this plugin and then navigate to Appearance > Import Demo Data. It will import all demo content and change your homepage and blog page to the ones from our demo site. It will also assign a menu;

OK so if I import it manually and follow the above steps will it be fully working? Please tell me where to find the Widget import file and DAT file.

These things should be listed in the manual if we have to go down the “manual import” option

Please help - I won’t start the website until it is all set up properly.

Hi Roman, I tried importing the demo content manually while i wait for you to respond. It said this:

The demo import has finished, but there were some import errors.
More details about the errors can be found in this log file

Should I be worried?

I went to Tools > Import > Wordpress as instructed. This is a different place to Tools > Import demo Data, where i was before. In Tools > Import > Wordpress, Wordpress was listed as “not installed” so I installed it and ran the installer. It said this:

All done. Have fun!

Remember to update the passwords and roles of imported users.

There is a lot of missing information.
Please help.

I have multiple hosting so let me know if it is better to start a fresh installation of wordpress, because this one seems like it’s a mess already

Perhaps there is a better theme you have? I tried Airi but the footers were all over the place and it was too basic

I tried it anyway. It’s working to a point

Hello,

It looks like you’ve imported the demo content successfully.

Failed to import warnings are related to WooCommerce, they are normal if you don’t have the WooCommerce plugin installed and activated.

And already exists notices mean that it’s okay, you have this already, no need to import.

Please feel free to ask any other questions that you might have.

Kind Regards, Roman.

Thanks Roman.
I’ve got the website working. Might have some more queries later. The buttons are quite hard to configure, but I have just deleted them all for now. Have a look at my website if you like : we-draw-buildings.com. Built with Talon. I couldn’t get the top buttons to move the page down to my services (projects) and software(services) so I deleted them. Also I haven’t been able to configure the contact form so it sends messages out. I don’t understand why all the themes have different idiosyncracies. It should be live in a day or so.
