Here are the steps:
- Go Admin -> Control Panel -> sites and choose the desired site

Using the Site Template
The Site Template has the same pages as the themes Demo Site in Themeray. You can use it as a template for your new Site.
So to do that:

And that's you cant see your site with all the theme pages
To See it click Page -> Site page -> View pages (Private/public)

- Display or not, the widgets in the footer
- 3 different settings for the footer widget section (left, right and middle)
- Display or not, the footer
- 2 setting for the footer container (left and right)
- Display or not, the language section
To modify any of those settings all what you have to do is to go back to the site -> look and feel and you save any modification you make

- Footer widgets:
- widgets-footer-section-1-article-id, widgets-footer-section-2-article-id and widgets-footer-section-3-article-id fields should contain the ID of the created webcontent (like the default webcontent for section 1 "FOOTER_CONTACT" )
- To modify the default web contents of the theme, you can go Admin -> Content select the desired webContent and make the change you need.
- Language section: If you need multi-language for your site, you can set this setting to true
