Installation & Login
Welcome to The Grid Beta. We're excited to have you on board Spaceship Earth. Here's what you'll need to do to get up and running.
Activate Your Grid Beta Account
First off, you must use the Google Chrome browser and extension to active and use The Grid on your computer. You can download the iOS or Android Grid app to post from your mobile devices. If you've received your Grid Beta invite, click the activation link within the email to kick things off, and then head on over to https://app.thegrid.io to access The Grid.
Install The Grid browser extension
The Grid Chrome extension makes it easy to share content to your Grid sites from anywhere on the web. Once installed, all you have to do is right click on a site, image, link, or article, and click the “Share”.
You’ll also get real time notifications from The Grid’s AI designer when your site design options are ready for review, or the new content you shared to a site has been published.
To install the The Grid Chrome extension, head on over here: http://thegr.id/1IRWuyn.
After installation, click the Grid logo at the top right of your browser to open the extension and login using the social media identity you connected to your Grid account earlier in the activation process.
NOTE: The Grid web app is optimized for Google Chrome, at least during beta. We can’t promise optimal performance in other browsers at the moment, but are looking at adding support soon.
Don’t have Google Chrome? Get it here.
Once you've installed The Grid Chrome Extension, clicking The Grid icon in the top right corner will take you right back to your site dashboard, as long as you are logged into your account.
