The install script doesn’t seem to have created the posts/pages/portfolio items like it does in the demo. What gives?
Major bummer! Really sorry about this. It seems that some hosting solutions don’t all of the PHP functions that we use to do the install the way we currently do it. Rest assured we’re working very hard to get this to work for everyone. However, in the interim, here’s an xml file of the demo posts/pages/portfolio items etc. You can use it by going to Tools > Import > WordPress and then select this file from your computer (that means you’ll need to download it first )http://dl.dropbox.com/u/455309/mercurytheme.wordpress.2011-09-04.xml
When we update the theme, you’ll know via the automatic notice on your dashboard. We’re sorry that this doesn’t work for all of our clients, but we’re on it!
