Introduction to BoldGrid
Meet BoldGrid, WordPress As A Website Builder
Empowering Users to Build the Sites They Want.
BoldGrid is a website builder created on top of WordPress. Our target was to make WordPress easier to use when creating a web site. We used web builder competitors like Wix, Weebly, and Squarespace to set a usability benchmark. Though we have a ways to go, BoldGrid is already making huge improvements.
Since it has automated many repetitive web designer tasks, it is very useful for professional designers and corporate webmasters. It is also popular for Do-It-Yourself webmasters getting started with WordPress.
BoldGrid was invented by a dedicated team inside a company that has built thousands of sites by hand and hosted hundreds of thousands of sites for over 10 years.
If you are familiar with WordPress, BoldGrid can be thought of this way. First, we use a highly automated combination of themes, plugins, widgets, pages, page layouts, menus, photos, icons, and written content. Second, we organized our tool to always be true What You See Is What You Get and to always provide an example for a user to customize. That is BoldGrid.
The BoldGrid system is comprised of two major stages, the Inspiration Phase and the Customization Phase. The Inspiration Phase gives you a chance to explore different website designs, pages you may want in your site, content that is specific to your industry, and functionality you may need. This stage is intended to give you a complete site, content and all. Then you enter the Customization Phase where you make the site specific to your business.
