Getting to Know Nimble: An Introduction

Getting to Know Nimble: Tips & Tricks to Make Our New Design Lab Work for You

The Nimble Design Lab is one of our greatest, and favorite, achievements in recent Typepad history. The Lab is still in Beta, but it's been well received thus far, and it's quickly working its way into more and more Typepad blogs. There's a lot of room for customization, and several new features to check out. Which brings us to the start of a new series...

To spread the love, and the know-how, we're launching Getting to Know Nimble. With it, we'll explore what the Nimble Design Lab offers, what it can do, and how you can utilize its features to make your blog stand out. (Bonus points for responsive designs on Typepad meeting Google Mobile requirements!)

Some of the topics we'll be covering are:

  • Fonts - Where to find, how to apply, and how to import fonts not shown.
  • Highlight Bar - What it is, how to enable it, and why we think you should.
  • Banner - What size, which spanning option, and the why's.
  • Navigation Bar - Where to place, how to place, and new content options.

Want to follow along with us as we uncover all that Nimble has to offer? Make sure to join the Beta team and create a test blog.

And that's us just getting started! There's a guaranteed part two, so you'll want to stay tuned. You can enable the option to receive the Typepad Newsletter, a once-a-month email that features news and blogs we think you'll enjoy, at Account > Notifications. It's a great tool to catch you up on all that's happening in Typepad. For a regular dose of news, however, you can follow our Twitter account (@typepad), where we offer news, tips, and status updates.
