Better integration with the Nimble section builder

We have recently released a simple yet powerful section builder named Nimble Builder plugin.

Nimble is a free section builder intended to be the content creation companion of Hueman.

The plugin allows you to drag and drop pre-built sections, or create your own sections in live preview from the WordPress customizer. You can easily create column layouts, and add content like buttons, icons, Google maps and even contact forms in any page.

You can see a live example of Nimble sections in the Hueman theme.

You can easily install it from your WordPress admin, in Plugins > Add New.

We are currently working on a knowledge base to help you getting started with the plugin, but you can take a quick tour of the Nimble Builder plugin in action, in the WordPress live customizer, on the screenshots below.

Creating a page with 3 pre-built sections



The search button is now displayed in tablet devices.



The footer credits now uses parsable tags like {{year}}


Filtering of the blog page posts by category

You can access this new feature in the live customizer > Front page content.

Then scroll down until you find the option named Apply a category filter to your home / blog posts“.

You can select one or several categories to filter your blog page posts.


Nested menus can now be expanded on mobile devices

The option is available in the live customizer > header design > header menus, at the bottom of the option panel.

You can test it in action in the live demo of Hueman.
