New Theme – Nisarg

New Theme – Nisarg

(Last Updated On: February 10, 2017)

I just got the new blog up and running, the first thing I decided to do is change the default theme. After looking at a few free themes I though Nisarg was great suitĀ for a developer blog. It is clean, responsive and easy. It was easy to add by going to “Appearance” -> “Themes” -> “Add New” and typing Nisarg in the search box, downloading and activating.

I will do some edits as I develop it further but for now I have made some basic CSSĀ changes by going to “Appearence” -> “Themes” -> “Customize” -> “Additional CSS”. I did not really like the big header, so I made it hidden, leaving only 1px line by adding:

.site-header {
  height: 1px;
  min-height: 1px;
.site-header .site-branding {

I also did not like text-transform options, so I have set them to default:

.navbar, .entry-header, .entry-meta a, #secondary .widget-title {
  text-transform: none;

  1. Hello Rasim,

    Glad I came across your site!

    I’m not a developper, but I’m designing the site for some friends members of a BMW club (bikes).

    I’ve installed the Nisarg theme, but I’m a bit bothered by the height of the homepage image and would also like to be able to move the site title at will !

    For the site title, I know this is located in the “site-header .site-branding ” section of the style.css file, but whatever I try out, changing position playing with left and top %, when I save the changes it doesn’t seem to apply to the title !

    My other main concern is about the header image, I would like to know where in the style.css (any other file that should be changed ?) I can increase the height from the mx 1600×400 required size ?
    I didn’t find any mention of these figures in the code, so how I can upload let’s say 1600×600 for instance or any image with the same ratio of course?
    Thanks so much for your help !


  2. Hi Philippe,

    The title is located within .site-header block. I believe the default min-height is set to 300px and can be edited as you need it. You can then position the text by editing .site-title block properties. You are right about .site-header .site-branding left and top settings, adjusting those should work. Make sure that you have a “.” before “site-header” as it seems to be missing in your description of “.site-header .site-branding”.
    I have not played with a header image, but “.site-header” block should be it.
