WordPress 4.8 is the first major release (or, “update to WordPress”) of 2017 and the first since WordPress co-founder and Automattic CEO Matt Mullenweg announced a new direction for releases: the previous directive of three major releases per year is out, and a new feature-focussed release schedule is in, with no goal for the number of releases per year and instead releases going out whenever they’re ready.
Yet, WordPress 4.8 isn’t a big feature-focussed release. Instead, it’s comparatively minor update which introduces a handful of new features and paves the way for future features.

Today we’re happy to announce the addition of a very useful feature in all of our themes. The new feature is called “Demo Content Importer” and it allows you to install within 1-click the sample content from each theme demo page.
The new feature can be accessed from the Import/Export menu in the Theme Options Page after updating to ZOOM Framework 1.6.0.

WordPress is an incredibly powerful publishing platform with millions of users. With such a huge number of users and an extremely diverse set of usages it’s inevitable that something somewhere goes wrong.
