You may have already created your “Active” site using BoldGrid but are now ready to start designing a different version.
Perhaps you simply want to see what a different theme looks like or you are ready for a whole redesign.
In these cases, you will want to install a “Staging” site.
Follow along as we show you how.
First, log into your BoldGrid admin dashboard.
From the dashboard, click on the “Inspirations” link in the left hand sidebar.
Next, click on the “Install New Site” link.
Now you will see the “Inspirations” page. Note the blue button says “Install New Staging Site”.
Click on this button to continue.
From here, click on your preferred “Category” and then click the “Select” button.
Choose your theme and click “Select”.
Just like with the “Active” setup, you can “Live Preview” the different themes.
Now select your desired “Page Set” and click the “Select” button.
If you are happy with your choices and are ready to install, simply click on the “Install this website” button.
The site will now install. This may take a minute or two depending on the theme and page set chosen.
Once completed, you will be ready to begin customizing your new “Staging” site using the “Customizer” tool.
With the “Staging” site installed, you will have the ability to work on it separately from the “Active” version.
For instance, in the “Customizer”, you will be able to toggle back and forth.
In the “Pages” section, you will see there are pages for each site. They are separated by different “Development Groups”.
You will also have the options to View both “Active” and “Staging” sites from the admin toolbar.
