AF Themes

The most flexible WordPress themes and plugins crafted for the future web.

Import live demo content, widgets, and settings swiftly. This plugin gives fundamental layout to build your website & accelerate the development process.

This plugin will create a page in AF Companion.

If there are no prebuilt import files in the theme you are using, then you will be given three file upload inputs. The first one is mandatory, whereas the second and third one is optional.

In the first one , you need to upload demo content XML file for the genuine demo import.

In the second one, it asks you for WIE or JSON file to import widgets. You can create that file using Widget Importer & Exporter plugin.

In the third one, you can import the customizer settings, choose the DAT file that can be created from Customizer Export/Import plugin (the customizer settings will be imported only if the export file was created from the same theme).

From your WordPress dashboard

  1. Visit ‘Plugins > Add New’,
  2. Search for ‘AF Companion’ and install the plugin.
  3. Activate ‘AF Companion’ from your Plugins page.

Once the plugin is activated you will find the actual import page in Appearance -> AF Companion.


I have activated the plugin. Where is the “AF Companion” page?

You will find the import page in wp-admin -> AF Companion.

Where are the demo import files and the log files saved?

The files used in the demo import will be saved to the default WordPress uploads directory. An example of that directory would be: ../wp-content/uploads/2021/02/.

The log file will also be registered in the wp-admin -> Media section, so you can access it easily.

I can’t activate the plugin, because of a fatal error, what can I do?

Update: There is now a admin error notice, stating that the minimal PHP version required for this plugin is 5.3.2.

You want to activate the plugin, but this error shows up:

Plugin could not be activated because it triggered a fatal error

This happens, because your hosting server is using a very old version of PHP. This plugin requires PHP version of at least 5.3.x, but we recommend version 5.6.x. Please contact your hosting company and ask them to update the PHP version for your site.
