Getting started with the Nimble Builder plugin

Once installed, the Nimble page builder can be used from the WordPress live customizer. The Nimble Builder allows you to add sections, and even redesign entirely any page of your site.

You can see the Nimble Builder in action with the Customizr theme or with the Hueman theme. Here's a 404 page designed with the Nimble Builder plugin.

1 - Accessing the Nimble Builder interface

You can start using the Nimble Builder from a brand new page, or from any existing content of your site.

When editing an already published post, page or term, simply click on the Nimble Builder link in the top administration bar.

From your WordPress administration page, navigate to Appearance > Customize

When browsing your front-end site, click the customization link in the top bar of the administrator.

2 - Start dropping your first content

You can either click on the "+" icon in the topbar or click on "Insert a new section". Both actions open the Nimble content picker.
