6 thoughts on “Changing Your Site Background in BoldGrid Crio

  1. the background image is stuck. I have the same issue. A huge picture is behind the title on the home page. There is no changing it. You can edit everything else. Boring and frustrating to spend over an hour just to change a single pic.

    • Hi Arnold,

      Sorry to hear you’re having a bit of trouble. How are your attempting to select your background? If you hover over your section at the very bottom you should see a black toggle icon with three bars. Click that icon and choose change background from that control setting and it should allow you to change your background image. It’s also possible the image is associated with and “Row” (yellow toggle), or “Column” (blue toggle), and not the overall section block itself. In that case you would need to select the correct block toggle that would allow you to change your image.

  2. Its not the background image. I have the same issue. A huge pic of a ferris wheel is behind the title on the home page. There is no changing it. Its stuck there. You can edit everything else. Super frustrating spending over an hour just to change 1 pic. I miss C5….WP has been like this the whole time. So counter intuitive and just annoying to use.
