All Joomla templates at JoomlaShine have the unique feature of installing sample data which makes your testing website look the same as the one on demo. In all templates, we provide two methods for you to choose from:
Sample Data – A light package with JSN template data. You can install it on your available Joomla website.
Sample data will be installed for common Joomla components and for supported third-party extensions (K2, Kunena, VirtueMart, OS Property...) which are already available on your website.
If you have installed the third-party extensions after installing Sample Data, you must reinstall the Sample Data to have the content for those extensions.
Please be aware that by installing Sample Data, you must accept to replace the current data on your website with the new data from JoomlaShine templates.
QuickStart package – It contains both the latest Joomla installation file and your purchased JSN template.
You install this package normally as the flow to install a new Joomla website. After that, you will get a totally new Joomla website with JSN template and its sample data.
By default, free extensions like K2 and Kunena are already included in the package with their sample data. The QuickStart packages do not contain commercial third-party extensions, you need to install these extensions separately.
Please note that before the sample data is installed, all original data of your website is automatically backed up into the Joomla folder. And with this mechanism, it becomes easy for you to restore the original data on your Joomla website whenever you want.
Now, if you want to replicate the demo content (with all supported third-party extensions) of a specific JSN template, please follow these following steps:
Step 1. Prepare a complete Joomla installation in your Web root

Step 2. Install third-party extensions
