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.

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.

Memory and cache are the main problems with this plugin. It refuses to accept the changes you make even after clearing browser cache, disabling caching plugins and Cloudfare. Certain animated features work in preview mode but not when pushed live. Disabling all plugins, removing all custom CSS code and using the default WordPress theme has no effect. It still won't work. You can see the code it generates in preview mode but when in live mode - the code is nowhere to be found. Manually putting it in and marking it as !important has no effect. Spend hours developing your own template or table for pricing only to have it altered with subsequent updates. Need to change the price - and it throws off the entire table requiring you to readjust the list one column at a time because altering the fonts size, weight and height have no effect. Changes made to the desktop view end up applying to the tablet and mobile view and vice versa. It's beyond annoying that you have to keep going back in and readjusting for each device until it finally accepts the changes. This is a decent plugin with minimal resource usage and has a lot of potential. Having used Divi and Elementor (which I migrated from) - these plugins are packed with features (most that users don't need) and consume a lot of resources and memory. There has to be a balance between usefulness and client needs to the overly bloated alternatives out there. Nimble just isn't it but I don't have the weeks required to test out another one so I'll just suck it up. Too bad it's nowhere near as good as the Customizr Pro theme from which it evolved.

I like using this plugin, especially, if a customer knows exactly what he wants. You can put any type of content into each site. It is much easier to handle than the Gutenberg Blocks. And it has more functions.
