Nimble, Our New Bold & Beautiful Theme

Nimble, Our New Bold & Beautiful Theme
Nimble is a big, bold, and beautiful theme that doesn’t let its own image get in the way. With each design I strive to strike a balance between style and function. Nimble’s colors are toned down but still delicious and its style is bold but still leaves room to breath. Browsing Nimble on a 27″ Cinema Display is quite a treat, but so is browsing the theme on a small screen as well due to Nimble’s fully responsive design. I’m quite pleased with how it turned out! As with all of our themes this one comes with some great features, so let’s take a closer look.
Live DemoFeatures Info

Fully Responsive Design

The use of mobile devices is on the rise, and it is important for your website to be ready for those mobile visitors. Nimble comes fully responsive, meaning that the design will adapt to whatever screen size is being used to browse. You website will look stunning and will be a breeze to read on mobile phones and desktop computers alike.
And let’s not forget about tablets! Nimble will also look great on your iPad or Android tablet in both portrait and landscape mode.

5 Unique Colors To Choose From

As with all of our themes, Nimble comes with some great color choices. If the delicous sorbet orange isn’t your style, then try out the Blue, Green, Red or Gray options. There’s certainly a flavor for everyone.

I hope everyone enjoys the new theme! Let us know what you think :)

  1. I have been waiting for this theme from the day its preview was revealed. Great work. Better then what I thought it would be. Heading to the members area to download right now!

    • Same here its amazing theme love the Homepage design alot

  2. Beautiful theme as always.
    But, the features are similar to the other elegant themes. There were a lot of suggestions about new features from me and other in the comments we made on the previous post.
    Do you at least read our (your clients) feedback?

    • Please don’t troll. It is very evident that Nick does read comments, as he often keeps replying to posts until new ones are made.

    • I appreciate the feedback and I do read the comments. However, adding new features to our themes is not something I take lightly. It requires consideration, and if I were to add a new standard feature, it would likely be something that would be pushed to all themes. When you try to please everyone, and add every feature that is requested, you run the risk of bloating the themes and making setup of the theme overly complicated. When adding a new feature, I have to ask myself whether the overall outcome will be a positive one for the majority of our users who are looking for a streamlined and intuitive experience. This doesn’t mean that we wont add any new features, but it does mean that you are not likely to see all feature requests answered.

      Here is a great video from WordCamp SF 2012 with a great segment on the state of theme options. http://wordpress.tv/2012/08/28/ryan-imel-the-state-of-themes/

      • You are right. It’s just that portfolio is becoming important for most websites and the design you used on Flexible is making sites better.

        Thx for the video.

  3. Simple and gorgeous!

  4. Man! This is awesome! Simple and perfect! Big respect! Great Elegant Theme!

  5. The homepage is different with each new theme (and I like this one) but after that, all is the same. Too bad. The animated buttons on the homepage are great.
    One question, the round images, is this the image itself or does the theme convert a regular image into a round one??

    • The theme converts it. You don’t need to do any extra work :)

  6. I don’t have time to test this one out just yet, but I really do like the look of it. One thing I’m curious about from either Nick or anybody who has had a chance to test it is whether the blog page has to be laid out the same way it is in the demo, or if there’s the option for a standard 1 column layout?

    If not, maybe I can figure out a way to play Frankenstein with other theme files to make that happen.

    • Just in case anyone else runs into this same question, there is a way to pull off the traditional blog format on this one. Create a blank page for your blog and use the ‘Blog’ page template for that. Check the appropriate actions under the template settings, and if you want it to be your home page hit the WordPress settings and set the static page you just made as your landing page.

  7. I may have to update my own site! I love this theme and I know some of my clients will want it as well!

    Keep up the great work!

  8. Love the theme, and would totally use it if there were more color options. It’s a real pain to have to edit the CSS files to get the desired color. I wish more of your themes gave the option of using a color picker for the main color choice, rather then the typical 3 to 5 choices =(.

    • Thanks for the feedback. We try to integrate the color picker whenever possible, but it really depends on the design as to whether or not it is feasible. In this case, the header is a gradient and all text contains dropshadows of a similar color. A simple color selection wouldn’t be enough, we would need to allow the user to edit every aspect which becomes rather complicated. Other themes, such as Chameleon, work much better with the color picker as the content of the theme is placed within a white container and separated from the background color.

      • I’m glad I know how to code. ;)

      • I love this theme – I’m going to dump another theme I have been working on (not an ET theme) that is too convoluted and difficult. I love the blue you decided to use for one of the color options. Also, you can always take the slices of the header, footer and BG and use Photoshop (hue & saturation adjustment) to change the colors and retain the gradients. I prefer the gradient headers opposed to the flat color pickers.

        Thanks for a great theme!

    • I absolutely agree with Angela. Would be great to have a free color picker rather than a limited choice of colors.

      I haven’t signed up yet with Elegantthemes, but am almost about to take the plunge. A color picker included with this theme would have made me click the sign up button right away … ;)

  9. Wow! This is great Nick! I can’t wait to dig into it.

  10. WOW!!! Amazing, Incredible theme, One of Eleganttheme’s best work.

    Congratulations

  11. Excellent Nick
    Très beau travail.

    Merci beaucoup ;-)

  12. The glory day has come true. Today Nimble is LIVE! I can’t express my expression now. So excited with the new design ;)

  13. Nick! Superb :) Simple and awesome design great job,
    Color attraction and pixel perfection is amazing

    Go on….

  14. waiting is over……….can’t say about this fabulous theme…….!!!

  15. Loving the simplicity, button style and slider. Looks really fine one.

    Let’s give a test in localhost.

  16. Looks like the home page is not responsive on my android phone ?

    • It should be. If you open a thread in our support forums we can take a closer look.

      • Ok Nick. I will.

        In fact I just cant scroll the home page. Only got the orange part. No problem with others pages…

        Cool theme ! We like it.

        • In fact, i too had problems loading the recent responsive themes in an Android 2.3 phone (most of them) – the same issue as agence web lille had said. I use Evolution for my site and the problem was instantly fixed by the support team here.

          About Nimble, this theme is a real surprise and a thing of beauty. Congratulations and keep surprising us, Nick. this theme has exceeded the expectations :)

          • Hi! The Nimble demo theme (as well as Fusion and Explorable) still presents scrolling issues on the Home page and pretty much every pages I try to load (the ones I can reach through the menu part I see without scrolling anyway).
            It’s very frustrating cause the responsive design seems pretty cool…
            Could you fix the bug on the live demo versions so the themes can be properly tested before buying?
            Thanks! I really like your work by the way.

            Android version: 4.2.2
            Nav: Chrome 18.0.1025469

  17. A very nice theme, Nick. The design and color schemes make a very soothing impression to me — should improve bounce rates :-) Great job! – Wil

  18. Absolutely beautiful…love the orange colour, the header and slider mixing up to show up as a single unit is quite unique.

  19. Best yet, guys! There is one slight issue with the theme. In the shortcode section for pricing the ‘Join Now’ button overlaps some of the text at the bottom.

  20. Beautiful theme like always and thank you for your good work Nick… Love the idea of circles integrated in design… Hope to see more of this in future themes :).

  21. Nice job for my weekend to try this new theme, thanks Nick.

  22. This is so special theme from you Nick :) Fell in love with it at very first glance, heading towards the download section.

  23. Now THAT is how I like to wake UP and start the day (check email on iphone and this theme available to your ROCKin members) JUMPED outta Bed, Thanks Nick!!

  24. Another great WordPress theme from the best team!

  25. Amazing as always! but, updating any of ET themes is still a mess, it would be great if you release an Et updater plugin, that’ll rely on ET API and automatically grab the new version updates from the ET servers rather of manually downloading updates every time. ;)

    • I agree,
      You can’s even overwrite the existing theme within Dashboard. you first have to uninstall the ‘old’ theme

    • Totally agree, Elegant Themes do so much right and produce some fantastic themes. The updating however is the biggest problem. A quick glance at the forums will show that to be true.

      I appreciate the need to protect the companies IP from theft, but surely there must be an easier way that builds in an element of protection for ET.

  26. The best theme “elegant theme” ever produced. Despite the fact i moved away from elegant themes to start using thesis frame for n number of other reasons, i still continue to keep an eye on the themes you are producing.

  27. Very nice template but I have 2 questions :
    - Why the tags are newer displayed in your themes ?
    - This new creation of special pages as Project are necessary ? If we change the theme for some other that do not include this Project domain, all our work is deleted isn’t it ?

  28. Woww awesome theme, gotta download it right away and use it on my new website:-)

    Regards Hans

  29. i liked this theme…very simple and flexible.

  30. Like the name , it’s Simple & Flexible . Nice themes ! Hope see more themes from you in the future :)

  31. Wow!! Beautiful Theme!!

  32. Hello
    When I see your Liive Demo, I can not see image bottom “Simple & Flexible” text in homepage slider.
    I am using Firefox 8.0.1
    Thanks

  33. I love the design of Nimble, except there is one standard, recycled feature you included that unfortunately sticks out like the proverbial SORE THUMB. It’s your Advanced Search template. It hasn’t been styled to match at all. So it looks like it doesn’t belong, especially in such a beautiful theme as Nimble. It looks like a plug-in that shouldn’t be on the same page. Please take a look…

    http://elegantthemes.com/preview/Nimble/advanced-search/

    Nick, any chance the Advanced Search template can adopt the style of the beautiful themes your creating? Or be handled differently, a plugin or something else? Especially for your last few beautiful themes like Nimble, please???

  34. Holy crap! You outdo yourself contantly, Nick.

  35. Just as good as I expected, maybe even better. The look and feel of it are really great, thanks for putting it out there.

  36. Gorgeous theme, I love all your themes.

  37. Hey, just discovered your music by looking at the Daily Notes theme… LOVE your music, amazing and unique voice… Get on American Idol!!! Went to Itunes to download your music and not there :(

    All the best with your music career, just don’t stop creating amazing themes ok : )

    • Thanks! Don’t worry, singing is just a hobby. I wont stop making themes :)

  38. I love this one.. I Hope to see a great news theme soon too!

    • Great design! What font did you use for the nimble?

      • I would appear they used Open Sans as the font

    • Jamie, the google update is related to having too many ads above the fold. General content/images consuming the real estate above the fold should not negatively affect the website ranking. The design of Nimble reflects a growing design/UX trend where scrolling is good… Check out HelloWallet as a great example.

      Nick, awesome design!!! I am going to use this theme for something awesome… I will share the link when it’s up.

      • I agree with a minimal header, especially on sub pages…..having to scroll down below the header area on other pages seems like not the best user experience.

        Also, I like the idea of having the top nav float as you go down the page….I have seen some nice themes out there that make it easy to navigate while still scrolling.

  39. When do you guys think you will start using sprites? I would love to see sprites come into play!

  40. Great theme! My new favorite. :)
    Is there a way to customize the slider. I’d like to change the size and position of the image that pops up and change the length of the subtitle. Thx.

  41. Certainly, Nimble is awesome, looks great on ipad as well.

  42. I really love the header, Nick.

    As a responsive design it’s brilliant. Looks awesome on an iPad.

    Keep up the great work. :)

  43. Hi everyone,

    I’m really interested in buying this theme but there’s just one thing I want to know first. Does the download come with all the demo content shown in the live preview? Because I could really use those layouts, especially the price plans haha.

    Thanks

  44. Nice collection,thanks for sharing. Looking forward to more:)

  45. these all these so cute and delicious i have these all and i using on theme own my site thanks theme maker you r great designer and maker make some more themes

  46. Hi Nick, Nimble looks charming while browsing through my IPad, it has a highly responsive design and its much more appealing then many other themes out there. A fantastic theme form Elegantthemes.

  47. THis is a awesome new wordpress themes for running a business website, very cool :)

  48. Simply Awesome!! I am going to use this for my site.

  49. Simple and awesome design great job,
    Color attraction and pixel perfection is fantastic

  50. I think I will be jumping on the Elegant Themes Train just because of Nimble. It is fun and fresh and very up to date with the scrolling lifestyle people are using, as well as the big bold spaces. One cool thing would be if Elegant Themes had a showcase. I see alot of comments above with happy users: i would love to see the themes in action. Also, I wanted to know if the themes come with demo content for setup. Someone else asked about the pricing table above, but I don’t see an answer yet. thanks alot!

  51. Beautyful theme … :)

  52. Simple & Flexible . Nice themes ! Hope see more pretty themes from you in the future

  53. I’ve been using Elegant Themes for years and have always been impressed with Nick’s products. This is a great theme and I plan on using it on my newest website. It’s perfect to get my site up and off the ground until it builds traction and warrants a custom theme. Thanks very much and have a great 2013!

  54. Its awesome. Just getting my site set up. I can’t figure out how to remove the small slider post name under the main slider on the left? Its just sitting there as a live link to the post. Ideas? Thanks!!!

  55. I have been looking for a wordpress theme like yootheme’s Infinite theme – that is one good looking theme. Nimble is the closest I have seen and because elegant themes is such a great deal, I will likely make a purchase very soon.

    I still remember the days when a membership was $19.95!

  56. THis is a awesome new wordpress themes for running a business website, very cool

  57. Hi Nick, I got a problem dealing with Project Page. I am not able to find the option of Project in page template.

    I am trying to create something similar to your project page http://elegantthemes.com/preview/Nimble/portfolio/recent-work/

    The gallery categories only include Post, not Project. Is there any solution available out of the box? or I need to create my own php script to get thing done?

    • If you need help, please open a thread in our support forums so that our team can assist you.

  58. alright. thanks.

  59. Nick, I am working with this amazing theme but want to know how do I change the featured slider from 960×295 to a larger image? I have changed my CSS in my child theme looked at functions.php and well out of options. It seems that WP is force resizing my image that I want to show which is 1246 X 445.

    Can go into more detail at my email above but really appreciate your help with this.

    Thank you Sir.

  60. Hi Admins!

    Nimble theme is awesome.I have a question, is there any way to play video into the nimble slider.

    Thanks

  61. Like this theme alot, it’s my first attempt at using it. Is there a way to replicate the font and style used for the ‘nimble’ title in the header? I downloaded Open Sans from Google and made a new logo in Elements, but the theme is using a kind of white block lettering with shadowing I can’t seem to replicate. Just wondering if the theme provides a way to use the same style in the header but different words other than the default title. Thanks

  62. This template is simply spectacular, I like the excerpts, the single page is also great. It is easy to read and pretty. I think I’ll have in mind for one of my projects. thanks

  63. Is there a way to limit the number of characters in the “Blurb” text on the homepage so it does not show the full page text?

    Alternative, any advice how I change the link on the “Learn more” button?

    Thanks in advance

  64. Hi! I love this theme and would love to see some websites using it, just to see the potential it has and how it can be customized.
    Any chance you know of any websites using it?
    Thanks!

  65. How do I get rid of the text animation in the slider for the homepage?

    • If you need help, please open a thread in our support forums so that our team can assist you.

  66. Love this theme! I am going to be using it on a few projects

  67. Great theme and amazing colour combinations cant wait to use it..

  68. I’m with Ibrar – I want to put a video prominently on the home page, in the slider or below. Any suggestions?
