Revolution Slider Demo Slides

Since version 1.14.2+, due to the fact that Lambda comes shipped with a major update of Revolution Slider(version 5), our global styles are declared as !important, so that they do not get overriden by the plugin's inline styles.

In order to keep our demo importer fully functional for Revolution Slider, this is a vital-although a bit frowned upon- process.

However, this means that the user should take into consideration that captions using our static global styles will not respond to many changes made via the plugin's styling toolbar. Demo Content Revolution Slider


WP Memory Limit

Sometimes the demo content installer might cause your server to run out of memory during the installation. To combat this you can always up the memory limit that WordPress uses.

  • Edit wp-config.php and enter the following above the line that says / That's all, stop editing! Happy blogging. /
    define('WP_MEMORY_LIMIT', '96M');
  • If you can access your server's PHP.ini file, then find the following line and increase the memory limit ie:
    memory_limit = 96M
  • If you cant't have access PHP.ini try adding this to the bottom of the .htaccess file at the root of your WordPress site:
    php_value memory_limit 96M
  • If you don't feel confident to attempt the above please contact your host provider.

PHP cURL fsock

In order for the demo content installer to be able to download the demo content, you will need to have either PHP cURL or fsock enabled in your PHP settings.
