Make sure to configure permalink. By default WordPress uses web URLs which have question marks and lots of numbers in them; however, WordPress offers you the ability to create a custom URL structure for your permalinks and archives. This can improve the aesthetics, usability, and forward-compatibility of your links. From WP admin panel go to the following path Settings > Permalinkthen select “Post name”.

Which gives you the ability to import the demo widget settings, saved as a .json file type. The import will not overwrite any data currently within the sidebars, but will increment the widgets and add a new instance of the widget instead. Choose Tools > Widgets Setting Import then select widget_data.json file from Demo Widget Settings folder directly from the demo content folder. Then click on Show Widget Settings Button. Select all or those widgets which you really need and use “Import Widget Settings” button. All widgets with registered sidebars will be imported.
