Thank you for sharing your success story, Im glad at least one of us got it working!
Tried your method and still doesn’t work =(.
My case is however different. I’ve followed all instructions, plugins installed and activated.
Import instantly finishes (I assume nothing was imported) with no errors.
No pages, posts or anything were created.
I’m disappointed in the support (or the lack of) given by the developer so far as a lot of reviews say Support is excellent.
Was very keen to work on this theme, now it is just getting frustrating…
