SECTION 01Installing Bold Builder plugin

There are two methods of installing a plugin onto your WordPress site. You can use the WordPress Admin panel to upload and install the plugin, or you can use FTP software instead.

Method 1

Use WordPress Add New Plugin feature and search Bold Page Builder.

Method 2

Download the archive here and:

  1. Unzip the archive on your computer
  2. Upload bold-builder directory to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  3. Activate the plugin through the Plugins menu in WordPress

SECTION 02Installing Demo

Please follow the next steps:
  1. Once you have installed and activated Bold Page Builder, you can download demo import package here: http://bold-themes.com/local/bold_builder/demo_data.zip.
  2. Please unpack demo_data folder and upload it via FTP to your plugin’s export_import folder (the server path is usually: \wp-content\plugins\bold-page-builder\export_import)
  3. You should have \wp-content\plugins\bold-page-builder\export_import\demo_data\ with a number of xml files in it.
  4. If everything went well, once you refresh your wp-admin console you should have Bold Builder Import item in Tools menu of your wp-admin.

To import demo go to Tools > Bold Builder Import and select a demo. Make sure that appropriate theme is activated (twentysixteen or twentyseventeen).

SECTION 03Translate Bold Builder

Please follow the next steps:

The procedure is standard – you can find the .pot file in the plugin’s languages folder.

Please use PoEdit – https://poedit.net/ to translate the .pot file and create respective .po and .mo fies.

You should upload .po and .mo files created using PoEdit back to plugin’s languages folder.

Please name .po and .mo files e.g. bold-builder-nl_NL.po and bold-builder-nl_NL.mo (nl_NL is the language code for dutch) and place them in /wp-content/plugins/bold-page-builder/languages/.

For other languages code, please refer to the following link: Internationalization.

You can set the site language of your WordPress installation on Settings > General. WordPress will automatically use the right language files if they exist.
