Since version 1.0.6 you don’t need to install demo content manually, that responsibility now on one click demo installer. This tool also installing widgets and demo settings, menus and other features which are usually not visible for first time users. You can start installing demo from Dashboard=>Appearance=> Import Demo Data=> and select one of the available demos.
If you want your demo to looked exactly like selected demo and to prevent conflicts with your current content, we highly recommend importing demo data on a clean installation. We highly recommend to create backup of your site before database reset if you are working on your database. Please note that database reset means cleaning all content that you have in your WordPress and restore to WordPress defaults.
2. Option to make sidebar widgets sticky
Now you can make one of your widgets in sidebar sticky. just go to Dashboard=>Widgets and select “noemi: Sticky widget” and place it before the widget which you want to make sticky. Usually it is one of the last widgets in the widget list.

How to Update the WordPress theme.
Before updating your theme we strictly recommend you to create backup of your site. When you are updating theme WordPress not removing your all data that you are added. Creating backup of the theme before update is recommended precaution for avoiding unpredictable bugs and mistakes.
There are various plugins and options to create backup of your site. We recommend you to use BackWPup plugin or any other plugin to create backup of your site. Also you can export your files in xml format from Dashboard=>Tools=>Export=>All files
After creating Backup file you can now activate one of the WordPress default themes and remove current Noemi version. Then just install latest version of the theme. Also you need to update plugins which are required for Noemi. Go to Dashboard=>plugins and deactivate then remove plugins which are required for Noemi. Below is the list of Required plugins for Noemi:
- Noemi Extensions
- One Cluck Demo Import
- Redux Framework

After removing those plugins theme automatically will offer you to install new versions of required plugins, do that and enjoy working with Noemi. In case if something went wrong you can restore your site with backup file.
