Quick start guide

Here are a few easy steps you need to follow in order to make your Sydney-powered website look similar to our  demo site.

1. Install the theme

Install the theme by going to Appearance > Themes > Add New. Once you're here, either search for the theme or upload the .zip file in case you've downloaded the theme manually;

2. Install the recommended plugins

Install the recommended plugins:  Sydney Toolbox and the Page Builder. You will see a notice to install them after you've activated the theme; 

Please note: the Sydney Toolbox plugin only works if you are not using a plugin called Types.

3. Import demo content

This step is optional. This is the easiest way to get a quick start with Sydney as it will reproduce our demo site on your own site. You have two options here:

  • 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;
  • Option 2: Manual - Download the demo content from here, then from your admin area go to Tools > Import > WordPress and select the file you've just downloaded.
