Installing Test Data XML File to Computer

  • Just downloaded and installed WordPress and I want to finish off by importing the test data from the WordPress Theme Development Checklist/Theme Unit Test which states:”Download test data: https://wpcom-themes.svn.automattic.com/demo/theme-unit-test-data.xml (updated 01/06/14 16:36 UTC)”. When I click on the link to download it opens as a text file. In WordPress Dashboard/Tools/Wordpress/Import WordPress it appears to only accept XML files. Am I doing something silly? Any help would be much appreciated.

  • Use WordPress’ import tool (found in the Tools section in the admin) to import the XML data. WordPress uses an XML type of data to do imports and exports.

    That’s my problem bemdesign, when I click to download the XML file it opens as a text file. What I am asking is how do I get the XML file downloaded to my computer so that I can use the import tool?
    Sorry if I am being a little dumb here but I really need blow-by-blow details to achieve it!

    Right-click on the link for the test data and select “Save link as” or “Download link as”.

    Thank you Senff. I thought I was there but when I imported the XML file I received:
    “Sorry, there has been an error.
    This does not appear to be a WXR file, missing/invalid WXR version number” – whatever that means as the file is from the WordPress website. I have tried a few times with the same result.
