Help setting up a simple company page

I’d like to create a simple engineering related company website / blog. The WordPress repo has some good templates but Everytime I activate it, it defaults to some bare bone site and I have no idea how to even get it close to the example layout they show on the icon.

Why is that? Is there a way I can just activate a WordPress them that defaults to the example template layout? I spent hours trying to figure out how to reproduce the layout and still failed. I also noticed a lot of these free themes have a “pro” version which I guess is how they sucker you in maybe?

Also are there any other tips for WordPress newcomers?

  1. After you install the theme, there may be an option to import demo content, that will make your website look like the previewed ones. Some theme may not supported this option.

    Can you specify which theme are you using? This helps to checkout its documentation.
