I’m the author of the theme
As explained in theme documentation, you can import the demo files from Tyrion > backup & reset > install sample data.
Here you can also download the placeholder images
Okay, will do…
This is what i said This is not easy to have the same look of the demo with the xml, the customer has to manage a lot of settings. The xml not import the settings of the theme options, like typography and color settings so i can provide an xml for my default “skin” but not for all the skin.
I can say that all my customers want this and nobody asked me the xml. When we released the first themes we made here (years ago) we released the xml but we had a lot of bad ratings because “the theme not look like the demo”.
My question is: why is not possible to provide both, xml for customers that already have a site, and gz for customers that start with a fresh installation? I think is a “bonus” for my customer provide the choise for this.
I really want to understand and follow the best practice, but i also want to make my customers happy
Anyway, if this is the solution, we will remove the gz and provide just the xml file.
we created a new theme with 9 different “skin” (layout design) and in the theme panel the user can choose if import the demo files of this skin. This demo files overwrite the content of the site, so the user lose pages, products. This is the best solution for who start from scratch and not for who want to change theme and already has a site with content.
The theme was rejected for this.
The reviewer said:
1. This is a no-no: http://envato.d.pr/sOKq/3MHaiBZt
- First of all, WordPress doesn’t have “skins”, WP’s native feature is called Child Themes.
- Then you warn the user that they may lose all the data if they don’t upload the said “skin” before any customization. — Unfortunately we cannot accept this approach. Again, please follow best practices.
So, i want to know something about the “best practices”. I purchased another best seller theme with “skin” and he provide just a single xml, but is a nightmare! My developer imported the xml and the result is not like the demo, and we have to set each widget, sidebar and so on.
I provided the gz file for all my themes and my customers are happy for this. 99% of customers start from scratch, other customers not import the gz and in this way everyone is happy.
Can i provide both gz file and xml file and then the user can choose? The gz is the best solution to import the content of the live preview exactly like the live preview and my customers ask this!
Please help, i have to send again the theme and find a solution.
thank you so much.
ops, i missed the thread.

We tried to update the old framework but we not found the issue that cause the loading time issue. We worked very hard on this for 9 months without big results. We have to create a new framework starting from scratch to be sure we will fix all the issues, and is not possible to ask to 6000 users to update a theme with a different theme panel and fw.
I’m not sure why this is against the rules, but i already opened a ticket to Envato to ask this. If i can’t, i will make a new theme, but i will lost customers that like the Bazar design.
