What is the difference between Basic and Full Demo Installations

What is the difference between Basic and Full Demo Installations

After you first activate the theme, you will be prompted with a Basic Installation that will create some content for you, but not much. If you wish to import even more content to make it look more like on our Live Preview server then you should do the Full Demo Installation. Make sure you carefully read all alerts before proceeding. Below you can see 2 screenshots, the first one is the Basic Demo Installation and the second image is the Full Demo Installation.
