Step 3 – Now click on the “Import Complete Site” button. [See “Get Access!” button? Explained in later parts of the article.]
Step 4 – A popup will appear with the following options –

  • Delete Previously Imported Site – In case you have imported a starter site before, you can opt to delete it automatically.
  • Install & Activate Astra Theme – Starter Templates are designed with Astra theme. In case you don’t have it installed/activated tick the option to do so automatically. If you skip this option, the imported template will inherit current theme customizer settings and might look different than its preview in the library.
  • Install Required Plugins – Starter Templates plugin will automatically install and activate the required plugins. No other manual action needed.
  • Import Customizer Settings – Site templates have their typography, layout, color, button set from the Astra customizer. Skipping this step will inherit these settings from your current theme customizer.
  • Import Content – Enabling this option will import content (text) and images for the site template. If you only need to import the structure of the site you can skip this.
  • Import Widgets – This will import widgets used (especially with header and footer) in the site template.

Step 5 – Hit the “Import” button. Do NOT close the window until the site is imported completely.
