Creating your first BoldGrid Inspiration

Once the BoldGrid Inspirations plugin is installed on your WordPress website, you can get started by installing your first BoldGrid Inspiration! This is the first step in your journey of building the custom website you want. The following article will walk you through the steps of creating your first BoldGrid Inspiration.

Getting Started with your first Inspiration

  • Login to your WordPress Dashboard
  • In the left-hand side of your Dashboard, navigate to Inspirations
  • Here, you will see an overview of the process that Inspirations follows
  • To continue, click the button labeled Let’s Get Started  

Content Check Warning

If you have existing content on your website, Inspirations will make some changes if you proceed. Any existing pages and posts will be put in the “Trash” which is easily recoverable later. Existing images will stay in your Media Library, and your current theme will be deactivated, but it will not be removed. If you have important stuff on your site, you may want to take a backup to ensure peace of mind.

When you are ready to continue, Select the blue button labeled I understand, Let’s Continue → to move on to choosing your industry and theme.
