Vivienne - Post-Installation Guide
This article is for customers who have purchased theme installation for the Vivienne WordPress theme.
We just installed your theme on your site – you may be wondering, now what? Below we'll go over the common questions we receive after installation and where you need to go to update things in your new theme!
Homepage - About Section
To update the "Hello I'm Vivienne" section on your homepage, go to Appearance > Widgets > Front Page 3. The title and text can be edited in the Custom HTML widget. The image can be changed in the Image widget.
Homepage - "Browse by Category" Images
Go to Appearance > Widgets > Front Page 4. Open the Genesis Featured Page widgets and you can select new images from the widget settings.
The "Browse by Category" title can also be changed in Front Page 4 in the first widget.
Homepage - "Essentials" Section
To add your own affiliate shopping widget to this section, you'll want to create a widget through your preferred affiliate program – ShopStyle (shown on demo), RewardStyle / LiketoKnowIt, and Amazon are popular options.
Once you've created a widget, copy the code for the widget. In your WordPress dashboard, go to Appearance > Widgets > Front Page 5. Open the Custom HTML widget, delete what's there, and paste your widget code.

Where I Shop Menu / Sidebar
Installation does not include setup of the Where I Shop menu, since we do not have access to your affiliate network links. Here are instructions for setting up the menu.
Advertisement ("partners") setup is also not included. See this article for advice on placing ads on your site.
Lead capture page
Coming Soon Page
On your installation form, you were given the option to have a coming soon page installed on your site. To remove the coming soon page and launch your site, go to your WordPress dashboard > SeedProd. Under Status, select "Disabled." Save changes.
We also recommend removing the "Coming Soon Page & Maintenance Mode by Seedprod" plugin from your plugins page if you no longer plan to use it.
