BeTheme Theme Install Size

For those of you who have NOT installed the BeTheme, its about 250+Mb!

That is because it loads ALL the slider demos and the site demos, as well - this dir is 247+Mb by itself... and you need it first if you want to see the different styles of sliders.... this makes the install/upgrade annoyingly and outrageously overlarge.

However... if you ALREADY have this theme installed,

There is a solution! ( and this for a site that ALREADY has an active BeTheme theme )
1) Open the zip file containing the upgrade theme
2) Navigate to functions>importer>demo>be
3) Remove ALL the zip copies of the demos
( * leaving only the be dir )
4) then in the same dir - open >slider-revolution-demo>demos
5) Remove ALL the zip copies of the demos
( * leaving only the demos dir and the plugin-author-demos dir **this too should be emptied! )
6) Save the zip file with a new name and it drops to about 37Mb!!

Use that to "Upgrade" with..... much, much faster and way, way easier!
Also, for new installs, after the slider has been determined, all the unused ones take up space - just remove them as they are not being used anyway!
**PS they are a good resource to keep and use for other sliders on other themes that use the RevSlider - quite handy....

**A note to NF admins - this should be kept active for everyone, and should be attached to any BeTheme thread - to make life easier for users.....`
