Charlotte - Post-Installation Guide (Blog Version)

This article is for customers who have purchased theme installation for the Charlotte theme (Blog Homepage version).

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. :)

Editing your navigation menus

All navigation menus on your blog can be edited/changed/added to at Appearance > Menus.

To change the "Get on the List" title or the "Subscribe for a Weekly Dose of Pretty" text, go to Appearance > Widgets > Front Page 2.

The category menu that displays to the left of the "Explore the Blog" title can be edited at Appearance > Menus > Blog Categories.

Contact page

To change the text and image on the Contact page, go to Appearance > Widgets > Contact Page Left. The title and text can be edited in the Text widget. The image can be changed in the Image widget.

Offscreen Side Menu

The menu items in the offscreen menu can be changed at Appearance > Menu > Offscreen Menu.  To edit anything else in the offscreen menu (i.e. your image), go to Appearance > Widgets > Offscreen Menu.

Additional offscreen menu instructions can be found here.


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 very easy to connect your Instagram account. Just follow the instructions here and then your Instagram photos will populate the Instagram feed 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, or if you want to add text, etc), 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.
