Thanks for the quick reply to my problem. And thanks for the idea to use WinRAR to uncompress the ZIP file. That seems to have worked fine. I followed the tutorial on the Shape5 website for "How to install a Site Shaper" and got everything to proceed pretty much as documented up to the radio-button pick at 6:00 minutes. That is the point where you "get to decide" whether to install the SiteShaper data. The current WordPress loader did not have that button on the form so I proceeded with the install. It completed and I updated WP, widgets, templates, etc.
That step of the video is no longer necessary. All shaper content is now installed automatically. The set by step instructions in the Wordpress FAQ
are probably better than the video at this point, but there's enough correct information in the video that we're keeping it until I personally have a chance to record a new one.
Problem is that the site is completely vanilla - no pictures, articles, etc. and there is no CYAN-specific configuration menu in the Appearance menus. I do have the Shape 5 Theme menu but none of the theme option buttons do anything. I went to the Plugins menu and enabled the "Shape5 Sample Data Injector - Cyan" which appeared to run and then deactivated itself. Still nothing more than a vanilla CYAN site.
15. CONTENT AND IMAGES: All content and images shown on Shape5 demos are for presentation purposes only. Demo sites are intended to exemplify a live website and do not make any claim of any kind to the validity of non-Shape5 content, images or posts published. Stock photography is usually purchased from shutterstock.com, and is not included with with any template or theme, nor are they included as part of your membership. Links will be provided for some images if you wish to purchase stock photography from their copyright owners in our downloads section.
Essentially, what that's saying is that the images on the demo are stock images that were purchased for only
the demos and due to licensing, they cannot be included in the shaper; this is why all the images in a shaper installation are the "Sample" placeholder.
As for the Theme Options area, there's a Vertex Upgrade Patch
I assumed that when I loaded the Site Shaper files that my site would look like the demo site, complete with pictures and articles. Is there something I'm doing incorrectly?
As stated above, the images in the shaper are placeholders because the ones from the demo are only licensed for the demo; I'm not sure what happened to the text widgets from the demo, but the main content is still there. One problem I see with your site is that you need to reset the permalinks settings under "Settings->Permalinks"; it should be as simple as clicking "Save" on that page, but if not, just select the "Post name" option and save that.
Thanks for the link, most people forget to include one, and it's usually a big help to have it.
