Better integration with Nimble Page Builder

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

Nimble Builder allows you to drag and drop pre-built sections, or create your own sections in real-time 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.

Check out a live example of Nimble sections in the Customizr theme.

You can install it from your WordPress admin, in Plugins > Add New, search for Nimble Builder.

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.

New option for a header on top of your content

We have recently introduced a new checkbox option for your header, allowing you to make it transparent and positionned on top of your content.

The option is available for your home page when using the modern style of the theme.

The example below shows how it looks when displayed on top of a home page slider.
