As we discussed earlier in our recent post WP Canvas : The most powerful Managed WordPress brief description about BoldGrid. Now we are going to illustrate it in detail:
Introduction to BoldGrid:
What is BoldGrid?
BoldGrid is an advanced WordPress website builder or drag-and-drop editor which is designed for beginners that provides an enhanced WordPress experience with an easy and efficient workflow. The main specialty of BoldGrid is that you don’t even need to touch the code. You can create your own website/blog with the drag-and-drop editor.
BoldGrid is a powerful website builder based on WordPress that will help you get your website up in two easy phases. You will need to make sure that you have installed it within your WordPress site. There are two ways to install it. The first, and easiest way is to install it through Amp and second way to install it is Manually in your WordPress website.
Phase 1: BoldGrid Themes or Custom Inspiration
This is where you will be picking your theme for your website. BoldGrid provides pre-determined categories for you to choose your theme from. Everything from business, marketing, real estate, and restaurants are covered in the categories. Don’t worry if you can’t find an exact category to meet your website’s needs. You can see all the options during the process as well. If you wish to use your own images, you are free to do that and swap the watermarked images out.
Phase 2: Customization
The Customization Phase is where you start adding your images and content to personalize your site. You can do a lot more like changing the color palette of your website, adding and removing pages, or editing the content on each page. Think of this phase as your opportunity to make your site unique and your own. This is also the phase where you will spend most of your time.Using the BoldGrid editor, you can easily drag and drop the different elements anywhere on the page.
