.XML Settings file not uploading to WordPress

I am getting an error below when trying to upload the .XML file. Why? Thanks!

“Sorry, there has been an error.
This does not appear to be a WXR file, missing/invalid WXR version number”

I’m also getting failure notices when I upload the Demo file. Some of it is showing up but the Team section for example - those files are failing.

> I am getting an error below when trying to upload the .XML file. Why?

Did you do that in Dashboard > Toolset > Export / Import > Import Types data?

Please try “XML text input” method.

> Some of it is showing up but the Team section for example

It happened due to the settings file hasn’t been imported completely. Once you get it 100% imported, please try importing the demo again.

Thanks Kharis! That worked - weird - when I logged back in just now via the login link off the main website, that importer section appeared. It wasn’t there earlier via in the WordPress dashboard.

Now with the demo file, after my first attempt, I was able to get some of it to appear (I’ve also since customized it): https://storytellerofyou.com

I just tried again via the Toolset (no Tools) Importer/Exporter, and got a bunch of boxes to check with General Settings and an Import prompt. When i hit Import, it just returns to the page requesting the xml file. When i tried the importer/exporter under Tools, i get this below but the site looks like the link i sent above without the team etc.:

Ahh disregard, Kharis! I think i need to change my front page to be the one on the demo. I assumed the front page would automatically load to appear exactly like the demo. That stuff is all there but just not on the main landing page so I guess I need to switch it.

Lastly, i tried pasting in the CSS code from the forum for removing the blurry overlay over the header image but as I’m not a coder, how do you paste it in exactly. Right now my css box is all white, so the hash marks and asterisks are gone. Does the code go within those markers? Can you send exactly what I need to paste into the CSS box to get rid of the overlay blur on the header image. I guess the code makes it transparent so that the full colored image shows? Thank you!

Hello there,

Since WordPress 4.7, you do not need extra plugin to apply custom CSS code.

https://codex.wordpress.org/CSS#Custom_CSS_in_WordPress

From dashboard, navigate to Appearance > Customize > Additional CSS. You’ll see default comment that reads like this:


/*
You can add your own CSS here.

Click the help icon above to learn more.
*/

Delete it, then add this code:


.header-image:after {
  display: none;
}
