Welcome to the Charlotte Theme

Welcome to the Theme Documentation center for your new Charlotte theme. To get started, click the "Charlotte Theme" link on the left. We recommend starting at the first article and working your way down – the articles have been ordered in a specific way to make the most sense when you're setting up your theme.

Our Charlotte theme is unique in that it offers two different homepage setup options: "Blog" and "Website." If you want your site to be more focused on blogging, then the Blog option is what you want. If you want your site to have a homepage where you can advertise your services, products, etc., then the Website option is what you want. Instructions are available for both options.

Before you begin

It's important that you  update your site to the latest version of Wordpress before installing your theme. Wordpress recently introduced a new widget that is now used widely in our themes. If your site is using an older version of Wordpress, some of the instructions may not make sense.

Whenever updating Wordpress software, plugins, or themes, be sure that your site has a  backup.
