The NIMVA theme is supplied with Visual Composer and several options for FAQs, testimonials, clients, employees, pricing tables and contact and which are all listed as separate items in the dashboard. These options are inserted into a page by using the Visual Composer Editor (see the image below which displays some of the available Visual Composer objects). For example, selecting Clients adds the detail currently produced at the bottom of our Home page before the footer.
There are 50+ training videos available for NIMVA and they can be viewed on YouTube. The Visual Composer is written by WPbakery and additional addons are available for purchase including the recommended All in One Extension by Sike
Problems encountered using NIMVA –
- The theme was originally installed using version 1.6 and was subsequently updated using versions 1.7 and 1.8. Using Theme Options>Logo Settings, the logo had been replaced by ‘DOVESOFT’ but following both theme updates, the logo was restored to ‘NIMVA’. FTP was used to copy the ‘DOVESOFT’ logo and overwrite ‘NIMVA’ in wp-content/themes/nimva/images.
- The demo menu was corrupted when NIMVA sample data was installed. This was a trivial problem as the developed site menu was used.
Tyler makes reference to four other sites:-
- Unsplash.com for free graphics for banners, headers etc.
- Picmonkey.com for online graphics editing, touching up, design and creation of collages.
- Logomaker.com where you can create your own logo in less than 10 minutes.
- Thenounproject.com for creating favicons.
