Once a Blueprint is created, there isn’t any way to make any kind of changes to it directly. There is, however, a workaround to accomplish the same thing: create a new site using your Blueprint, make the desired changes to that site, then create a new Blueprint from that site.
To get started, just create a new site using the Blueprint you’d like to edit. There are two ways to do this. You can either: 1) click the “New site” button in the Flywheel dashboard and then check the Blueprint you’d like to use on the next screen, or 2) head to Manage > Blueprints, and click “Create site” from the dropdown menu of the Blueprint you’d like to use.
Either way, you’ll fill in the new site options, being sure your existing Blueprint (the one you want to update) is checked in the “Select a starting Blueprint” section of the form (see screenshot below). You can select “My client will pay later” as the billing option to set it up as a temporary demo site, if you like. Site creation should just take a few minutes.
Once the site’s ready, just log into WordPress using the credentials you chose a moment ago during the site setup. Make all the edits you’d like: add, update or remove plugins, themes and settings.
When you’re ready, head back to the Flywheel dashboard of the site you’ve been editing. Hover over the gear icon in the upper-right to find the “Create Blueprint” option.
Give your new Blueprint a name, and you’ll have an updated version of your original Blueprint! You can leave the old one for reference or feel free to delete it.
