You should start with a clean installation of WordPress to ensure there are no issues during the rest of this process. You can use the WordPress Reset plugin to delete all content and reset your site to a clean install.

If you haven’t already – purchase React and install it on your site. Install and activate the React Child theme.

Step 2 – Import the demo content

Download the React Storm XML export file and save it to your computer. In your WordPress install go to Tools → Import and click WordPress. Install the WordPress Importer plugin when asked. Once installed click Activate Plugin & Run Importer then choose the React Storm XML export file you just downloaded and make sure to tick the box Download and import file attachments.
