    • Hi Jake,

      Thanks for reaching out with your BoldGrid Post and Page Builder for WordPress questions. You can control displays for different device screen sizes using the built in responsive controls to design separate blocks based on device screen size. We have a guide that explains how to do this in detail.

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

  2. Looking for the place to add multiple images/photos to our web gallery. When I add now it just drops in the first area with text, but I need to add it to the gallery of photos.

    • Hi Barrett, are you using the BoldGrid Gallery plugin? It sounds like you may need to either update the plugin or check to make sure that you still have it installed and activated on your website. You can confirm this by checking for the plugin in the “Plugins” section of your WordPress dashboard.

  3. I have followed all of the steps to replace images, but several are blurry. Is there an easy fix? Also, I grabbed a template that I love but when I add my photos, the template does not publish correctly and is all wonky.

    • Hi Jennifer-

      Typically when images are blurry, it’s because they’re being stretched or squished because the source photo is a different size than the template. When you’re replacing the image, be sure to use the cropping tool to make sure that the new image uses the same aspect ratio as the original. If you’re still having issues with blurry images, I recommend reaching out in our Support Forum so we can take a closer look for you.
