BoldGrid offers a way for you to develop a totally different WordPress site while displaying another website for your visitors to see. The visible website to your visitors is called the Active site. The site that is not seen by your website visitors, and used for development is called the Staging site.


Page types

For a newly created BoldGrid site, all of the content will be found within the Pages section. All pages added to either the Active or Staging site are labeled in the Development Group column. Any page within the Active development group is displayed on the active site, while Staging group pages are in the Staging site. All pages can be edited within the Pages editor.

Creating a page

Saving new pages

When creating a new page, you will have the option to set it to either the Active or Staging group. Under the Publish settings of your page you will see a setting for Development Group. Here you can select your preferred group by clicking the appropriate radio button. Pages that are saved without choosing a Development group are set as Active pages by default.


New themes

Themes can also be set them to either Active or Staging. When visiting the Themes page, each theme in the list will have options buttons named Activate and Stage. Themes that are as either Active or Staged will display this on the theme thumbnail.

If you're not a customer of Web Hosting Hub and want to find out more about Active vs Staging please visit the BoldGrid Support Center.
