  1. Your instructions for adding pages does not work. I get nothing when I click on “Add Items.” This is very frustrating and time-consuming. Am I limited to the number of pages that I can post on the Primary block? Can I create sub-pages under parent page?

    • In testing, we are not seeing any issues with adding new items. A menu should appear just to the left with tabs such as Pages, Custom Items, Posts, etc. depending on what is on your site. If you are not seeing that, please tell us what theme, WordPress version, and BoldGrid version you are using so we can try and test that.

      BoldGrid does not limit the number of items you can add to a menu. The Primary block is an area on the page. Once a menu stretches across the entire width it will add another row.

      Yes, you can add sub menus to your menu items as that is a normal WordPress feature. You simply drag the child item under the parent using the WordPress menu editor.
