Boldgrid.com is a web builder created on top of WordPress. It was specifically built for the DIY webmaster. It makes WordPress easier to use when creating a website to the point where the Boldgrid and WordPress combination is competitive with Wix, Weebly, Squarespace and any number of other web builders.
Since it has automated many repetitive web designer tasks, it is also very useful for professional designers.
Boldgrid.com was invented by a dedicated team inside a company that has built thousands of sites by hand and hosted hundreds of thousands of sites for over 10 years.
If you are familiar with WordPress, Boldgrid.com can be thought of this way. First, we use a highly automated combination of themes, plugins, widgets, pages, page layouts, menus, photos, icons, and written content. Second, we organized our tool to always be true What You See Is What You Get and to always provide an example for a user to customize.
The Boldgrid.com system is comprised of two major stages, the Inspiration Phase and the Customization phase. The Inspiration Phase gives you a chance to explore different website designs, pages you may want in your site, content that is specific to your industry, and functionality you may need. This stage is intended to give you a complete site, content and all. Then you enter the Customization Phase where you make the site specific to your business.
