In this video we will discuss the BoldGrid feature of Copyright Coins.
CopyRight Coins are a unique feature of BoldGrid. They allow you to purchase images from various image providers and use them within your website.
Copyright Coins are not required for you to build your site. You can always simply replace any
images with your own.
However, if you want to use stock photography in your site, Copyright Coins make it easy to purchase and add them from right inside the BoldGrid admin dashboard.
In your stock setup, you will notice that many of the images have watermarks on them, for example like this About Us page.
If you decide to keep these images and remove the watermarks, you can purchase them by going to the Transactions option on your left hand sidebar menu.
From there, click on the Cart/Checkout tab.
Once on the page, you will see a list of each page that has images and the cost of each one.
They are all pre-selected to be purchased.
If you do not want a particular image, simply click on it to deselect it.
You can see the total cost of each page in the bottom right hand corner.
Simply enter your Key and agree to the Terms and Services and then click the “Purchase for Publishing” button.
If you have selected an image for purchase via the BoldGrid Connect Search, you will first need to insert the image onto a page for it to appear on the transactions page.
This is because the Transactions page is designed to display the images according to the Active Site’s pages.
This also helps you so you only purchase the images as they are needed.
One of the features unique to BoldGrid is the GridBlock.
This allows you to add pre-formatted chunks of content to new or existing pages easily.
From there, you can then modify them to meet your website’s needs.
Here we will show you how to add a Gridblock to a page within your BoldGrid site.
First, log into your BoldGrid Admin interface.
Next, click on the Pages option from the Left-hand sidebar menu.
While you can add Gridblocks to existing pages, we will demonstrate on a new page.
To do that, simply click on the Add new button.
Once you have named your new page, locate and click on the Add Media button.
Next, click on the “Insert Gridblock” option on the left-hand menu.
Here you have two tabs of Gridblocks to choose from.
The first tab is specific to your current theme.
The second tab is the Universal Gridblocks tab.
Browse the tabs and find a gridblock that you like.
Simply click on it to select it, then click the “Insert into page” button to add it to your page.
This brings you back to the page editor where you will then edit the page to your needs using the drag handles.
