Ability to copy entire Active to Staging (with Active Theme) without having to recreate it Staging.

Jim 1 year ago updated by Harry J (Products Manager) 1 year ago 1

Once a site is deployed, we need the ability to copy the deployed site back to staging, exactly as deployed so that we can then try out new things/changes/improvements in staging then re-deploy when ready. 


Thank you for contacting us.

We are currently working on improving the staging capability, and appreciate your feedback. I will pass it along to our development team, and hopefully we will be releasing a new version very soon.

We always value your suggestions for features as well as improvements. You can subscribe to our BoldGrid mailing list for updates, news, and further information about BoldGrid at the following page: https://www.boldgrid.com/subscribe/

Restore Backup in WP CLI

support (Support) 7 months ago updated 7 months ago 1

Restoring backups from the command line will help users recover their website in cases where they run updates or do something else that disrupts usability without having auto-rollback options configured.  It could also help speed up migrations by removing the need to login to the Dashboard to restore a backup.

Command Line controls for Automatic Updates

Harry J (Products Manager) 7 months ago updated by support (Support) 7 months ago 1

As a host or end user, the ability to control automatic updates via wp-cli would be a fantastic feature to have for setting up an automatically managed WordPress website.

  • Plugins
  • Themes

Using this feature in conjunction with the newly released backup scheduling commands would allow for hassle-free management of sites on a server.

Manual Backups from the Command Line

Harry J (Products Manager) 7 months ago updated by support (Support) 7 months ago 1

When using BoldGrid Backup, the ability to use wp-cli to take a manual backup of the site would be helpful to avoid having to login to the dashboard to do so.


Changing Header Layouts

Johnathan 2 years ago updated by Harry J (Products Manager) 2 years ago 1

Having a selection to choose different styles for your header and footer would be a great feature to have. Ideally, it would allow for different options for menus, logo placement, and additional text


Thank you for your suggestion.

This feature is something currently being worked on, and we will be implementing this in a future version of the BoldGrid Theme Framework.


Selecting Different Layouts

user 2 years ago updated by Harry J (Products Manager) 10 months ago 2

I would like to see a control that would allow me to select different layouts for my pages, such as full width and fixed width


Thank you for your feature request. This is currently something we are implementing within the Theme Framework, and it should be releasing soon.

Delete Columns

Carlos E 2 years ago updated by Harry J (Products Manager) 2 years ago 1

 When a column is deleted, can BoldGrid resize the remaining columns evenly? This behavior is present when adding a column or cloning a column, the columns are resized evenly. Currently, the column's spacing remains (on the right most section of the row), even though it has been "deleted". The delete function is almost the same as "Clear Content" because the column space remains. As it stands, you have to manually resize the remaining columns after deleting one, to eliminate the unwanted spacing on the right.


I'd like a widget that I can put on my static front page that will allow me to show up to 10 of the most recent blog posts. Right now it seems the only way is to setup a child theme and this is way to cumbersome

paul 2 weeks ago updated by Jesse Owens (Community Manager) 2 weeks ago 3

Instead of a list of blog posts, let's have a widget that adds the blog. That way simple non-programmers like me don't have to create  child theme


Sorry to hear that one didn't work out the way you needed! Another plugin that does a really good job keeping all of the formatting is:
