For useful information on theme customization and a list of the most frequent questions we receive, do read the FAQs.
For those of you wishing to achieve more theme customization than what is allowed by the integrated control options, we recommend using child themes instead of manually editing theme files. This feature is pretty well documented by WordPress and has the main advantage of keeping the theme update-able. While any changes done to Nirvana’s files are lost on each theme update, a child theme is a separate (partial) theme aside Nirvana and is not overwritten in any way.
The theme is available in the WordPress themes repository.
You can easily install it from within WordPress. See our theme installation tutorial for more information.
The easiest and simplest way is to use WordPress’ automatic update functionality to update the theme to the latest version using a single click.
If you absolutely want to perform the update manually, the procedure would be to:
- export the theme settings using the built-in export functionality
- switch your site to a different theme (a Twenty-something should be fine)
- from Appearance > Themes, delete the theme
- re-install the theme (if you don’t remember how, follow our installation tutorial)
- re-activate the theme
- you should find all settings as you left them; if anything goes wrong, use the export you made before to restore the settings
If FTP is comfortable for you, you can also simply re-upload and overwrite the existing files with the latest version.

Yes, you are seeing right – two Nirvana updates in (about) two weeks – such a quick release cycle hasn’t happened in a while. This must be due to the warmth helping code move around and settle itself faster (as it’s almost summer for us here in the northern hemisphere).

It’s all been so quiet lately, hasn’t it? Too quiet. And calm. Well, all this calm is about to come to an end, and as calm always does, it’s about to make way to a fierce storm.
And this particular storm comes in the form of… wait for it… wait for it… a new WordPress theme! Dig into the announcement post to find out more… Continue reading
For accessibility reasons, Wordpress 4.4 changes the HTML markup of the settings sections in an way that’s incompatible with our theme settings pages. As a result, our themes will fail to display the settings sections once you update to 4.4.
To solve this… Continue reading
The saddest moment in Nirvana’s life has come: the settings page – it’s gone! Due to higher forces that are beyond our control, the theme has just lost part of her soul.
However, do not panic. We have prepared for this moment and set up an alternative solution. As we have previously announced, we decided to retain the settings page functionality and move it to the separate Cryout Serious Theme Settings plugin. Continue reading
As you might know by now, themes in the official repository are no longer allowed to implement a theme options page. All new themes were required since early this year to implement support for the Customizer and some weeks ago this rule became mandatory for themes already published in the repository as well.
We’ve given this a great deal of thought and we decided not to transfer theme options to the Customizer interface. We built our themes settings to fit and work in a certain way and we feel the Customizer structure just isn’t right for them.
To be able to continue providing theme updates… Continue reading
We don’t often send our themes to the doctor, but when we do we make sure they return all patched up. This is true for Nirvana 1.1.3 which returns so full of fixes and patches that one must wonder how it managed to function at all in the first place.
Well, the secret is that there’s so much functionality in Nirvana (and our other themes) that there’s bound to be something functional even when there’s so much that is buggy…
The good news is that Nirvana is now less buggy and you can enjoy the fixes listed in the changelog… Continue reading
Nirvana isn’t one not to notice, especially important changes as Wordpress 4.3 (which decided some code is no longer future-proof and should be deprecated).
To keep up with developments, the update to make some notices go away and leave them to be noticed only by those who should make the noticing is here. Plus notice the changelog… Continue reading
