How do I create a Blueprint?

Updated on May 1st, 2020

To create your first Blueprint, follow these simple steps:


Create a new site on Flywheel

Create a new site on Flywheel. This site will be used to set up your new Blueprint. If you already have a site on Flywheel you’d like to use as a Blueprint, head to step two!


Set up your site so it's Blueprint ready

Add any themes, plugins, and settings to your site. These settings will eventually be saved in your Blueprint, so get things set up to save time in the future.


Create your new Blueprint

From the site’s page in Flywheel, hover the gear icon and click the “Create Blueprint” link.


Name your Blueprint

Give your new Blueprint a fancy name. For instance, if you’ll be using this Blueprint for all of your future eCommerce sites, then a good name may be “Online Store.”


That’s it! Blueprints only take a few seconds to save. You’ll now have access to the Blueprint on your Blueprints dashboard and from the new site page.
