First go to: Dashboard > Appearance > Widgets.
Make sure all of the homepage widget areas are empty.
Next you need to download the wie Widget Import and Export files. (always scan anything you download for viruses, it’s better to be safe than sorry)
This is a zipped bundle of files and we only need one of them, so after downloading find the file named: academy-pro-widgets.wie
Put: academy-pro-widgets.wie file on your desktop.
Now go to: Dashboard > Tools > Widget Importer and Exporter
Navigate, find and select the, academy-pro-widgets.wie file.
Click the big blue Import Widgets button…
Now if you navigate to your site’s front page, it should look similar to the demo site.
