LazyEater: Demo Content & Settings

Purchase LazyEater if you would like a full installation and setup service.
This Article will guide you to setup the LazyEater demo content and settings.
Before we start make sure you have:

  1. LazyEater plugin installed but not activated, this does not mean the key activation but the normal WordPress plugin activation.
  2. Frozr theme installed and activated.
  3. WooCommerce plugin installed and activated. Also make sure you have followed the WooCommerce setup wizard and installed the demo pages.
  4. Slider Revolution plugin Installed and activated. (Comes free with your purchase of LazyEater)

Importing the Demo XML file.

The first thing to do is importing the Demo XML file from your WordPress admin by following these steps:

  1. Click on Tools > Import.
  2. From the list of import systems click on “WordPress”. If you don’t have it installed, Install it first and continue.
  3. Click on “Browse” to choose the Demo XML you just downloaded from your computer, and click “Upload file and Import”.
  4. Next, without changing the Assign Authors settings, check on “Download and import file attachments” and click the submit button.
  5. You show now get the message “All done. Have fun!”, if you don’t get that message, post a comment here with the error you got.

Activating Demo Sellers.

The Demo XML imported in the previous step will import demo sellers (Restaurants), products, posts, categories, and menu. Since the sellers have been imported from an XML file, they will by default be set as Customer or Subscriber, so we have to change them to sellers but before we start, first go to the plugins page and activate lazyEater, if it was previously activated, deactivate it and activated again and then follow these steps.

  1. In your WordPress admin menu click on “Users”.
  2. Select the imported users which are Seller1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, & 7.
  3. From the change role select menu on the top select “Seller” and hit the “Change” button.

Refreshing Permalinks.

You should have done this step in the installation process of LazyEater but since we have deactivated the plugin and activated again, you should refresh your permalinks again.

  1. In your WordPress admin menu click on Settings > Permalinks.
  2. Without changing any setting, just click on the “Save Changes” button.

Activating Users (Sellers) for Selling.

We now have completed the back-end part, it’s time to go to the front-end and complete the setup.

  1. So while you are still logged in as admin, go to your website homepage and click on the user icon on the top bar then click on “Your Dashboard” > Sellers.
  2. Now click on each seller name and from the popup activate selling and hit the “Save Settings” button.

Customize tool settings.

The final step here is to setup the demo LazyEater layout settings from the WordPress Customize Tool.

  1. While you are in your website homepage and logged in as admin, click on the “Customize” link in the top WordPress admin bar.
  2. Click on “Custom CSS” and paste the following CSS code:
    #header-container{
    background-color: #725827 !important;
    }
    .fr-menu a, .mobi_menu i, #branding * {
    color: #fff !important;
    }
  3. Go back, click on “General Options” in “Theme color palette” option select “Style 2” and in “Theme typography style” select “Style 3”.
  4. Go back, click on “Header” > “Header Search” and uncheck the “Show a search input in header” option.
  5. Go back twice, click on “Front Page” > “Top Selling Items” > “Layout Options” set the “LoopBackground Color” option to #4ab64e and “Loop Icon” to trophy.  Then click on “Typography Options” and set the “Loop title color” & “Loop description color” to white color.
  6. Go back, click on “Latest Restaurants” > “Layout Options” and set the “LoopBackground Color” to #f2f2f2 and “Loop Icon” to Institution.
  7. Go back, click on “Sliders” and set “Content Slider alias two” to “featured_rests”. This step is done if you have imported the demo featured restaurants slider explained earlier in this article.
  8. Go back, click on “Posts Loop 1” check on “Use Posts loop 1? ” and set “Posts Category” option to Health. Then click on “Layout Options” and set “LoopBackground Color” option to #f2f2f2 and “Loop Icon” to heartbeat.
  9. Go back, click on “Featured Posts” check on ” Use featured posts? ” and set “Loop Type” to products and select any six products from the “Select Products” option. Then click on “Layout Options” and set the “Loop Icon” to heart.
  10. Go back twice, click on “Menus” > “Main Menu” and set the “Menu Layout” option to Use Ordinary Menu.
  11. Go back, click “Main” and in the “Menu locations” option check “Primary Menu”.
  12. Hit the “Save & Publish” button.

  3. hi sir. love your work. getting 405 Not Allowed on my site using wordpress. i’m stuck on step #4 “Next, without changing the Assign Authors settings, check on “Download and import file attachments” and click the submit button.” thanks

    1. Hello, this might be because of your server security settings. However, importing file attachments is an optional step, this will import all demo images to your website, if you still want that, please contact your hosting provider to solve the issue.
      let me know if you need any further help.

    1. Hi, please note that the system will only show you restaurants that will deliver to your location. If no restaurant are showing, this might be because there are no restaurants in your website that will deliver to your location or your restaurants have not set their delivery locations and addresses.
      Try searching with “Restaurants” search type active instead of “Delivery”.
