Sample content?

Post by CBI Web » Tue Oct 19, 2021 12:06 am

Just installed J4, but it's very empty. Did I miss the option to install sample content like 3.x had, or is there no such option in 4?

Edit: Found it! It's an option on the first page of the admin dashboard. All good.

Yep, was going to say, it's an Administrator module - if it wasn't visible just go to Module manager, set the search filter to "Admin" modules and you will see it there. The data is not installed at Joomla installation itself.

ALSO: some of the new Templates that come with populated Contents such as text and images, also do/might have the option of adding the Content after the Template is installed. The insertion of the Content that comes with the Template, once executed, cannot be easily undone or removed.
