Ok I have recently lost a WordPress developer so I decided I was going to learn this product to avoid being "stuck" when a developer leaves in the future. I am trying to import a site from another WordPress multisite bitnami setup and I cannot get this to work. Here is what I have done so far.

  1. I added the new site to my wordpress setup, imported and applied the appropriate theme
  2. Exported the current site using WordPress Export from the tools menu
  3. Imported site from XML file into new site setup using WordPress Import from the tools menu
  4. Worked through all of the import errors, mainly associated with needing the WooCommerce plugin installed

After going through all of those steps, the customized content from the original site does not show up on the new site I have imported this into. The standard Demo content from the Theme is all I see.

I have gone through the steps above 3 or 4 times thinking I created a problem somewhere, but each time after the import completes successfully I still see nothing but the Demo content.

I realize this is a basic WordPress function, and likely a basic question, but I have Googled and researched this every way I know how and still I cannot get this to work. What am I doing wrong?
