A mobile responsive site looks professional and shows you care about your reader's experience on your site. Also, Google loves mobile responsive sites. So much so, they are prioritizing sites that are mobile responsive sites in search results.
We are excited to announce we are rolling out our Nimble Themes (mobile responsive themes) from Beta! They will now be available for everyone. We have 19 Nimble Themes for you to make your own. If you do not see the themes right away, you can join our Beta Team!
Create A Test Blog
We know you are excited to get started and we've made it as easy as possible to get going. Before you jump in feet first for your main blog, we recommend you create a Test Blog. This will allow you to personalize one of our Nimble Themes before you apply it to your blog. Take your time with all the cool features and apply it when you are ready. No rush!
View Our Nimble Themes
Click on the Blogs tab, then the name of the blog. Click on the Design tab, then Choose Theme. On the left, click on Design Lab (Responsive). Here you will see all our Nimble Themes. Select the one that works best for your blog, then click on Choose.
Customize Your Theme
After you have selected your Nimble Theme, click on the Style tab. Here you can customize your blog with your brand colors and fonts. There are many things you change about the design. When you select a color or font it will automatically apply to the preview design of your blog.
After you personalize your blog, click on Save Changes.
Apply To Your Main Blog
Once your theme design is complete you can apply it easily to your main blog. Click on the Blogs tab, then click on the name of the blog you want to add the design to. Click on the Design tab. Under Your Design, find the design for your test blog. Click on Actions, then click Apply. Your new design will instantly be applied to your blog.
