In this article, we are going to show you how to import demo data from WP Shortcode Pro to your website.

This feature is useful to see all the various shortcodes in action. The demo import operation creates a page on your website with various examples of the shortcodes. The page is published by default, and you can make it as a draft after the import.

Let us see the process of importing the demo data in detail.

Before starting the process, make sure that WP Shortcode Pro is installed and activated by heading to Plugins -> Installed plugins. You might have multiple plugins installed, you have to make sure WP Shortcode Pro is one of them. In our example, we have only 1 plugin installed, which is WP Shortcode Pro.
