Amelia - Post-Installation Guide

This article is for customers who have purchased theme installation for the Amelia theme.

We just installed your theme on your site – you may be wondering, now what? Below we'll go over the common questions we get post-installation, where you need to go to update things, and more. :)

Homepage - Slider

The image slider in the Amelia theme pulls images from your blog posts. To change the slider images, simply set new featured images for each of your recent posts.

Slider Tips:

  • Upload images at least 1650px wide by 600px tall for the slider. If your images smaller than this, your slider won't span the width of the screen.
  • By default, the slider will display your most recent posts. If you would like to individually choose which posts display in the slider, click here for instructions.
  • If you want to use a traditional image slider instead of a post slider, click here.

Homepage - 3 Featured Buttons

To change the images (or title) for the 3 buttons below the slider, go to Appearance > Widgets > Front Page 2. Open the Genesis Featured Page widgets. You can select a new image, change the title, etc from the settings.

Click here for detailed instructions on swapping out the photos in the Genesis Featured Page widget.

Navigation Menus

There are two navigation menus in the Amelia theme – the Primary Navigation (the top bar above the header) and the Secondary Navigation (the menu below the header).

To add/remove/rearrange links in your navigation menus, go to Appearance > Menus. Click here for detailed instructions on using menus in Wordpress.

Shop the Post Widgets

Click here for instructions on adding Shop the Post widgets to your site. To add Shop the Post widgets to your homepage underneath the Continue Reading button, follow the "Using the Custom Field" section on the instructions page.

Instagram feed

The Instagram Feed on your site was set up and configured during theme installation. However, it's no longer possible for us to connect your Instagram profile to the Instagram feed without directly logging into your Instagram account. It's super easy to connect your Instagram account. Just follow the instructions here and then your Instagram photos will populate the Instagram feed areas in your theme.

Instagram Landing Page

The link to your Instagram landing page is your website URL + /instagram. Example:

The Instagram landing page is very easy to update and change as needed. To add/change/remove menu items, go to Appearance > Menu > Instagram Menu. To edit anything else on the page (i.e. the social icons), go to Appearance > Widgets > Instagram Landing Page.

Complete instructions for the Instagram landing page can be found here.

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.
