Nimbo is a WordPress theme for your blog. It has a minimal and clean design with several different layouts: 2 different header styles, 2 menu types in the header, 3 different blog layouts, 3 layouts for single pages, and there are 3 available areas for widgets in the footer. Nimbo also has some very interesting features. Some of them:

  • Live switching between two different styles: light and dark. Each visitor can choose one of the color schemes (light or dark), and the theme will remember the choice of each visitor to improve the usability of the site. In addition, you can change the default color scheme from light to dark.
  • Nimbo displays a list of recent comments under each post on all archive pages, + you can easily configure this feature in the theme settings.
  • Nimbo can show popup windows with images, video/audio players, and galleries.
  • And, of course, that’s not all…

The theme is fully responsive and looks good on mobile devices. Use it to make something cool! 😉

Thank you for your interest! Enjoy! 🙂

If you use Russian characters on your site, then in this case do not forget to add the following character sets to the theme settings: cyrillic,cyrillic-ext (this is necessary for the correct display of Google fonts; more information: Documentation > “Translation” section)
