After successful Content Importing
If you imported demo content you will notice that some new pages have been created. The one with the name Homepage has been set as your front page in wordpress options. This is the page you can use for the homepage of your site and you can customize it using all the available shortcodes.
If you haven’t imported demo content you can create your own page and then you can set it as “Frontpage” at Settings/Reading “Front page displays” and select “A static page”.
After importing demo content if there are any caching issues and you don’t see the updated styles you can try updating your visual styles manually from Theme Settings -> Visual Settings and click Update.
