Step 7 - Install the Plugins
The next step is to install and activate the required & recommended plugins.

Required plugins: A plugin offers additional functionality and features beyond a typical WordPress installation. You do not need additional licensing to use the plugins below with your theme.
Once the required plugins are installed and activated, you can continue with the "Proceed to Demo Content Import" button below the plugins list.
Recommended plugins: Please note that the theme doesn't depend on the plugins in this list to function correctly. Nor does the demo content importer. Install them only if you are going to use them. Otherwise, they may impact the site's performance or burden your hosting unnecessarily.
Once the PRO Elements / Elementor PRO plugin is enabled, you have to make sure that the Permalink structure is set to "Post name":
Now, you can complete the Demo Content Import.
We recommend using the Demo Content Import Feature.
This is a great feature that helps novice WordPress users and veterans alike. This feature makes the necessary settings/configurations and installs demo content in the WordPress theme - categories, pages, posts, and widgets.
Your VamTam theme will look exactly like the one you see on our live preview. It doesn't matter if you know WordPress inside out or have seen it for the first time; it's always easier to modify posts, categories, pages, and widgets that are already there rather than creating them from scratch. Moreover, it is easier to understand how your new VamTam theme works.
Our Demo Content Import is a tremendous feature that will save you a lot of frustration and headache at a press of a button. Try it out. We promise you won't be disappointed.
Go back to VamTam > Import Demo Content > and click the Import button:
You are advised to use this importer only on new WordPress sites. You can also check this article: Can I import the demo content on an existing installation?
Images will be downloaded in the background after the main import is complete. Depending on your server, this may take several minutes. In the meantime, you may notice that some images are not visible.
Hooray! The theme's been set up successfully! Now, you can start customizing its content. You're advised to check the setup guide for your theme here: Setup Guide Vamtam Elementor Theme.
