How to Work on Menus in Staging | BoldGrid

The BoldGrid Staging plugin allows you to create a development site that includes the option to modify menus as well as pages.  As per the BoldGrid interface, there are a couple of ways to modify a menu:  the Customizer or the Administrator.  Follow the steps below to see the different ways you can edit a menu for your Staging site.

Using the Customizer

In order to edit a menu using the Customizer, then you will need to have selected the Staging site.  

  • Log in to the Boldgrid Administrator
  • Click on Company Name in the top left corner
  • Click on Visit Staging Site
  • In the menu bar at the top of the screen, click on Customize
  • The menu column will appear on the left-hand side of the screen.  Click on Menus to edit or add to your Staging Menu

Using the Menu Editor in the Administrator

To get to the Menu Editor in the Administrator you will still need to go into the Administrator, but these instructions will also point out how to get to the Staging menu while editing the Active Site.

  •  Log in to the Boldgrid Administrator
  • Click on Company Name in the top left corner
  • You can be in the Active Site or the Staging Site. Select the site that you want to edit
  • In the menu bar at the top of the screen, click on Customize
  • The Customizer menu will appear on the left-hand side of the screen.  Click on Menus
  • Click on the Edit in Admin button at the bottom of the lefthand side of the screen
  • You will see a warning you that you are about to leave the page without saving the page. If you haven’t made any changes, click on Leave Page.  If you need to save your current changes, click on Stay on Page
  • The administrator Menus page will provide you with a way to select a menu in Active or Staging using a drop-down menu located at the top of the screen. Select the menu you wish to edit

You should now be able to select an active or staging menu when editing the menus in the Administrator Menus page.  You should also note that the Add menu items section includes two tabs labeled Active and Staging.  These tabs allow you to select from that menu structure to add or remove to the menu that currently editing.
