Add block function and general boldgrid editor function not working

Ernest Oh 5 months ago • updated by Makedonijawood 5 months ago 13

I logged onto wordpress today and have tried creating a page. Normally, all I need to do is go onto a new page and click "add block" where I an then select pre-made blocks from my block library to enter into the page. 

However at the moment, when I click "add block" nothing happens. It simply doesn't work. Also the general "drag and drop" function of the boldgrid editor is not working. I have double checked that I am indeed using the "post and page editor". 

Something is definitely not right. 


We recommend you use only 1 SEO plugin - Yoast or the pre-installed BoldGrid Easy SEO. You should be able to remove either without disrupting your website. The issue is reportedly related to the 5.0.2 WordPress update. We apologize for any inconvenience.


Call to action not loading on homepage and widget is missing

Bez 3 months ago • updated by jacqueems (Customer Community) 2 months ago 1

Hi! We just loaded the Pavilion theme and the call to action text and button that are shown in the preview are missing. When I go to add a "call to action" widget as some posts have suggested, is isn't there in my list of widget options. 

How can we add that? We want our page to look like the preview, with a nice background photo, some text and a learn more button, all above the main menu. Thank you!

Hello, I am having the following problem: I can not access the visual section (bold grid) of the front page of my Wordpress site. Customizing won't work either (just redirects me to the page of my site). What could be the problem?

Why isn't my home page filling the screen?

WilburnStrategicSolutions 4 months ago • updated by support (Support) 3 months ago 3

Hello!  I am new to web design and I'm experiencing some difficulty with getting the home page of my selected Boldgrid template to load properly. \

Specifically, when you go to my website (wilburnstrategicsolutions.com), the home page (a bridge across a bay) does  not fill up the screen.  There is blank/white space on the right side of the screen.

Why is this happening?  

Please advise on how to correct this so that my website looks as great as your templates!


Is there anyway to get a refund of coins or exchange for an image I did not know would include branding on it and now I can't even use it?

admin 5 months ago • updated 5 months ago 2

It says 123RF on it and the original picture (as you search) doesn't include any branding on it whatsoever. This is deceiving? Can my account be created back my 3 coins?


We apologize for any inconvenience and have credited your account as requested. You should have 16 credits total. Please let us know if there's anything else we can assist you with.

slotgclub168 6 months ago • updated by Harry J (Products Manager) 5 months ago 10


Why i can not add or edit block after updated Wordpress to version 5? The image slider that i have previous edited, now only 1 picture show when in editor mode. And all the functions are now gone. Whats wrong with it?


hi, i have found what is the cause of the boldgrid stop working. It was because of Yoast Plugin. I have deactivated all of my plugin, and then start activating one by one. And i found that Yoast was the problem. I will send my problem to them. Thank you for trying to answer my problem.


Global Options Feature Missing

ChristopherT 6 months ago • updated by jacqueems (Customer Community) 6 months ago 1

In previous wordpress website, I downloaded Boldgrid to create pages and there was a "Global Options" feature to change images for a selected block. In a new download of Boldgrid for a new website the Global Options feature isn't present. How can find and turn on that feature?

The global options feature was very useful in allowing custom global changes to the images used in selected blocks.
