InMotion Hosting Support Center

To begin working on your BoldGrid site, you will need to log into the admin dashboard. Below are simple instructions on how to do that.

Logging into Your BoldGrid Site

  1. Visit your site by adding /wp-admin to the end of your domain name. For example, if your domain name is example.com then you would type example.com/wp-admin.
    BoldGrid login
  2. This brings up a screen where you will enter your username and password.
  3. Once entered, click on the Login button.
    Bold Grid Log in

You are now logged in and taken to the main dashboard screen. From here you can continue to create or modify your BoldGrid site! If you are not a current customer of InMotion Hosting and need assistance with BoldGrid, you can visit the BoldGrid Support Center for more information. For more information about logging into BoldGrid please visit the BoldGrid site here.

I'm having trouble logging in to BoldGrid. Which logon and password should I use, the admin, the support center logon or the email logon?

BoldGrid used your WordPress username and password that you created when you set it up.

How about a simple "old school" flow chart to show how to get into BoldGrid.  I have found several different posts but after trying each I still am not able to get to where I can actually start designing a website!  The online videos (one that proposes to represent InMotion) shows things that are not actually on InMotion at the present.

My web browser says that the log in is not secure and suggests that I do not log in this way. How do I secure the connection so that my log in info is not vulnerable?

You would need to have an SSL certificate associated with your site. SSL is used to encrypt connections between the server and the client (your computer attaching to the server). Check out this article for more detail.

If you have any further questions, please let us know.

Kindest regards,

I already have a website on the domain and would like to keep it running while I try creating a site with BoldGrid.  To do this, I used the BoldGrid testing option which is supposed to operate in a sub-domain on the site.

The installation looked like it went ok, but when I try to login using mydomain.org/wp-admin I get a 404 not found error.  I'm not sure if the installation failed or if the login is not working.

 

Thanks

Lorry

I recommend testing your .htaccess file, since it handles rewrites and redirects. This is easily tested by renaming your current htaccess file. Often, during troubleshooting, I'll simply rename the .htaccess to .htaccess.old and now I'll reload the website. If the site loads I then know the issue resides in my configuration of the .htaccess file. If it does not fix the issue I was having, I'll rename the htaccess by removing the .old I added to the end. That way, it won't affect my website after I resolve the issue.

Thank you,
John-Paul

Hi John-Paul,

Thanks for the information about the .htaccess file.  My main page works correctly with it renamed, or with its original name. 

I don't see any files or folders corresponding to the BoldGrid test area though, so my gut feel is that the installation tool didn't complete correctly.  What I might try next is moving my main page into a sub-account, then setup the Bold-Grid area as the main account and see if that works.

I follow the instructions on how to login to boldgrid and i get this error

why is this happening?

 

404: Page not found This error is generated when there was no web page with the name you specified at the web site.

Troubleshooting suggestions:

Ensure the page you are linking to exists in the correct folder.

Check your file name for case sensitivity . Index.htm is not the same as index.htm!

Temporarily disable any rewrite rules by renaming your .htaccess file if it exists.

It sounds as if BoldGrid did not install properly. Whats your domain name and we'd be happy to look into it further for you.
