How to Delete Pages in WordPress | BoldGrid

One of the common tasks for managing content in WordPress is deleting pages. You will often delete pages which are no longer relevant or simply being replaced.  The main difference for deleting pages in a typical WordPress installation versus a BoldGrid installation is the use of Staging.  

When you are deleting files in a BoldGrid site you will need to make sure that you distinguish between the active and staging site.  The following directions will show you how to quickly and easily identify and delete the pages that you no longer need.

Make sure to check out our pages on page editing for more information on how you can customize individual pages.
