When I active a WP theme, it does not completely download. The theme is not reproduced exactly (no graphics, no background, etc.). I was expecting a WYSIWYG. The widgets,etc. appear as random sentences. I localhosting using XAMMP.

  • Your question not clear, as you say after theme activate it does not download. Okay I think do you mean after theme install. From where you download theme from themes page? Or with FTP. – maheshwaghmare Jan 27 '19 at 6:23
  • Add code define('WP_DEBUG', true ); define('WP_DEBUG_LOG', true ); define('WP_DEBUG_DISPLAY', true ); in wp-config.php to file it will show you the error on display and also generate log file in /wp-content/debug.log hope it helps – maheshwaghmare Jan 27 '19 at 6:26

After Installing you need to import DEMO content provided by theme developer if not then try connecting with Theme Developers. Whenever you install a theme from WordPress.org store they will provide only the theme :), check if there is an option for demo content.
