Choosing an editor


WordPress offers several different editors you can choose to edit your website. If you are using BoldGrid to create your site, the Post and Page Builder is recommended. This article gives you a quick overview of the following options.

You should not use multiple website builders, such as BoldGrid and Elementor, on the same site. If your site was built using one WordPress website builder and you want to change to another, you should first use a staging site instead of installing a new builder on the live site.
