Savannah - Post-Installation Guide

This article is for customers who have purchased theme installation for the Savannah 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. :)

Editing your homepage and other pages on your site

Go to your WordPress dashboard > Pages to edit pages on your website. To edit your homepage, click "Edit" under the Home page.

Editing your navigation menus

All navigation menus on your site can be edited/changed/added to at Appearance > Menus. The navigation menus available in the Savannah theme are:

  • Primary = Menu to the right of your site title/logo
  • Secondary = Menu at the top left corner of your website
  • Mobile = Menu that displays on mobile devices only
  • Footer = Menu at the bottom left corner of your website

You will also have custom navigation menus for your footer columns.

Configure newsletter widgets

Your theme utilizes Genesis eNews Extended to display all of the newsletter signup forms on your site. These forms are located in the following widget areas:

  • Newsletter signup forms on pages (i.e. the home page): Go to Appearance > Widgets > Savannah Newsletter Block > Genesis eNews widget. 
  • Sidebar: Go to Appearance > Widgets > Primary Sidebar > Genesis eNews widget.
  • Footer: Go to Appearance > Widgets > Footer 6 > Genesis eNews widget.

Click here for instructions on linking the Genesis eNews widgets to your mailing list provider.

Instagram Feed

While we wish we could link your Instagram profile to the feed and get this all set up for you, Instagram now requires a direct login. Click here for instructions on linking your Instagram profile and configuring your feed as shown in the demo.

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 > CMP Settings. Under CMP Status, select "Disabled." Save changes. Next, go to Plugins > All Plugins and delete the "CMP - Coming Soon Page & Maintenance" plugin.
