Automatic installation

Automatic installation is the easiest option as WordPress handles the file transfers itself and you don’t need to leave your web browser. To do an automatic install of ThemeGrill Demo Importer, log in to your WordPress dashboard, navigate to the Plugins menu and click Add New.

In the search field type “ThemeGrill Demo Importer” and click Search Plugins. Once you’ve found our demo importer plugin you can view details about it such as the the point release, rating and description. Most importantly of course, you can install it by simply clicking “Install Now”.

Manual installation

The manual installation method involves downloading our demo importer plugin and uploading it to your webserver via your favourite FTP application. The WordPress codex contains instructions on how to do this here.


Automatic updates should work like a charm; as always though, ensure you backup your site just in case.

Unfortunately I have to give you 1 star. Everything I have worked for is gone, thank heavens I submitted my site to the internet archive. All of my tags and categories are gone, and the lowest quote I've gotten for someone to fix it all is 500.00. You knew about this yet you failed to take appropriate measures to protect your users. So what are you going to do about this?

In early February of 2020, my colleague opened the home of my WordPress site and practically the website had been reset! Graphics and texts identical as you open a WordPress site for the first time! BUT not only that, SQL database reset, deleted accounts (I had to recreate an ADMIN account directly from the database) ... I thought of a hacker attack and instead the hosting service informed me that this disaster was created by this plugin ThemeGrill Theme Importer: Incredible! Extremely disappointed, it was a portal that both the customer and I cared about... now I will have to recreate the site from 0.

This theme - whilst beautiful - is unsafe. Very easy to hack - check the reviews below or go to thehackernews website and search for "Critical Bug in WordPress Theme Plugin Opens 200,000 Sites to Hackers". Wiped my site out - fortunately I had a backup and noticed it in time. AVOID! The developers of the theme clearly have no interest in addressing the issue.

Thanks a lot. 2 days of work to restore everything. Is the new plugin safe now? It's all very annoying, how can you install such a big backdoor.
