The Post and Page Builder includes a large set of professionally designed Blocks as a starting point. In this article we will show you how add and save BoldGrid Blocks using the Block Library.

  1. Is there a way to get a block to be inserted at the bottom of the post rather than the top? I am writing a long blog post and it’s frustrating to have to drag a new section from the very top to the very bottom each time I add one in.

    • Hi Danielle,

      The “Add Block” tools will add your new blocks at the top of the page. What I normally do is either build my pages from the bottom up or use the drag feature to drag the block to the bottom of the page.

      I hope this helps!

  2. Once I have used a Premium Block, how do I know which one it was? I don’t want to pay the cost to use Premium Blocks so now I have to go back and remove them.

    • Hi Amanda-

      If you do decide to cancel your subscription to the Premium Post and Page Builder, you won’t lose the premium blocks you’ve already used, you just won’t be able to add new premium blocks.

        • Hi Amanda-

          You may not have made a direct purchase, but if you use one of our Platinum WordPress Hosting partners, you may have a BoldGrid Premium license included in your hosting package. In any case, all of your existing content using premium blocks would not be affected if you ever switched to a free license.
