What is RocketLauncher?
RocketLauncher is a WordPress installation package that installs WordPress as the demo. The launcher installs the sample data, which has been customised to match the demo, and the themes, plugins and images are already built in. The launcher is the best method to replicate the demo with ease.
Due to the complexity of our demos, it is much easier to see it in action then it is to read in written tutorials and / or viewing screenshots. Therefore, the process of using the template on your WordPress Blog is much faster, simpler and makes for a better experience.
We use the latest WordPress version available at the time for our launchers and when WordPress updates, we proceed to update all the launchers so they are up to date for all new downloads. Please go to the WordPress Downloads repository to see what version the RocketLauncher is using.
