To import all the demo content use the xml file included in the /import folder of the theme(s)
If you already purchased Octofirst version 1

Please note that the contact form has been upgraded, it no longer needs the send_email.php file. The form processing is done in-page now.

Make a backup of your files first, before installing the new theme.

Your admin panel options will be resetted automatically once the new theme is in place, you will have to re-enter them. Luckily, this will take minutes at most.

If you used the XML import file, you need to go to Settings > Reading and set Home as the static frontpage.

If you did not use the import file, you need to create a page, assign it the Home template, go to Settings > Reading and set it as the static frontpage.

Also, please note that the translations are not perfect, so you can easily correct the pre-made german and italian localizations by using the po source files included.
