What is Nimble Page Builder ?

Nimble Page Builder is a fast and agile page builder plugin for WordPress. Nimble Builder uses the live customizer which is the native and powerful WordPress interface for real-time design. The plugin allows you to easily drag-and-drop modules like text-editor, post grids, images, contact forms, maps, icons, or beautiful pre-built sections with a parallax background, into any page of your site. You can edit your sections in real-time, and then click "publish" when you are happy with the result, or save for later.

Watch the video below to see how this demo page has been built !

Works on any page of your site and with all WordPress themes

Nimble Builder allows you to insert sections in any context of your site : home page, single post or page, category or tag page, even search results or 404 pages. No only that, but you can also decide to start designing from a blank page on any page of your site, and even create a custom header and footer. Nimble Builder uses native WordPress action hooks, which makes it compatible with all WordPress themes.
