    • Hi Judith! Thanks for reaching out, I’m sorry to hear you’re having trouble installing your connect key. If you’ve installed and activated your BoldGrid Plugin or Crio Pro WordPress theme you should see a new widget at the top of your Admin Dashboard that prompts you to input your BoldGrid Connect Key and submit. This should be all you need to do to activate your BoldGrid Connect Key.

      I hope this helps. Please let us know if you have any other questions for us.
