Each BoldGrid account comes with a unique “Connect Key” which is entered during installation by simply providing your first and last name, as well a valid email where it can be retrieved. After you submit the Connect Key, the BoldGrid plugin will be activated and you can begin creating or editing your WordPress website. “Connect Coins” are used to purchase images with a watermark in BoldGrid Inspirations. These Connect Coins are available for purchase through BoldGrid Central if your host is not a supporting web host.

When you begin to install a BoldGrid Inspiration or edit a page with the BoldGrid plugin activated, you are given the option to either make changes on the main “live” site or on a separate site in a staging environment. A “live” site is considered the active site, while the “staging site” is a duplicate of your active site where you can preview changes before publicly displaying them. Get creative without fear of interrupting your audience’s experience, and easily switch out the page or full site whenever you are ready to go live with new content. Get the BoldGrid Staging Plugin now.
