    Hi, very interested in your prefab’d pages, but on loading your xml with sample data I get:

    `/wp-admin/admin.php?import=wordpress&step=2`, does not exist.

    Do you have another way to copy the codes you’ve used on the pages?

    Or a beter xml?

    I have not heard of such a problem. Can you retry by following the instructions provided in this video uploaded by me.

    Hope this solves your problem. If not email me a temporary login through my profile page in ThemeForest and I can take a look. Pls make sure the theme is installed in the directory under mydomain.com/wp-content/themes/enigmatic.

    I would not try another method since it has worked countless number of times without this issue and unless there is an inherent problem with your wordpress installation/setup, you should not face this issue. It is just a symptom of a larger issue which won’t go away even if you found another way to import data. Thanks.

    Hi, thanks for your quick response. I solved it – it was an issue on my side.

    The problem was that I had loaded another sample.xml in an earlier phase (with another theme – Enticing). Though the pages were deleted from my admin, there was still a reference in the database wich conflicted with your sample.

    Deleting those make your sample pages work like a charm!!

    Hi there,

    I also uplaoded the sample from Enticing and have had the same problem since changing to Enigmatic.

    Can you please let me know how you corrected this.  I have gone through my File Manger and am still unable to find anything and still unable to load the sample data for Enigmatic!

    Thanks heaps

    Hi,

    What is the best way to remove the sample data? I want to reset the template and data back to the original state.

    Thanks.

    Best way is to create a new database. change wp-config.php file to point to this new one and let wordpress install itself and then reload the theme post install. That way, you retain the old one just in case you need the sample data for reference.

    If you are talking about development environment, above way is a good way to go about it. This way you can instantly switch back and forth between the sample data and the clean install by just changing the db name in wp-config.php ( I usually have same user assigned to both DBs).

    And when you feel you are done with sample data completely, just delete the old DB. No manual deletion of posts, pages etc. required. Hope this makes sense. Thanks

    Thanks livemesh. Good to know about the multiple databases and pointing wp-config to the one I want to use. I’ll do this next time as I’ve been building the site over the sample data. I will have to manual delete the sample data after.

    Because I’ve been editing over the sample data, I wanted a clean install with the sample data so I can see the websites in parallel and make the necessary adjustments to code. But I get stuck at the importing the .xml file (with …wp-admin/admin.php?import=wordpress&step=2 in the address bar) . I wonder if its anything to do with the wordpress install? I’m using godaddy and have used the inbuilt wordpress installation tool to create the site and database.

    Thanks.

    Shouldn’t be a problem. You can even try multiple times until you succeed (except menus stack up with each import but you can just delete the menu and do one last import). Try to import first without importing attachments and then you can try importing with attachments. If you have insufficient memory allocated to your installation, the import can fail badly every time you give a try.

    If the import keeps failing, pls try increasing the memory as described here –

    http://codex.wordpress.org/Editing_wp-config.php#Increasing_memory_allocated_to_PHP

    If you still have trouble, pls email me the temp login to your wordpress install and I will try to see what’s happening. It is also useful to check for errors in the error log in wordpress install directory. Email me a copy of the same as well. Thanks!
