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.

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.
