A visual theme editor that allows you to responsively customize the appearance of any WordPress theme or plugin without writing code.

For CSS coders, Microthemer is a proficiency tool that comes with the ACE code editor with syntax highlighting and firebug-like computed CSS reporting. Now you can inspect and edit in one place. For non-programmers, Microthemer's intuitive interface and 'double-click to edit' features allow you to change the appearance of your website without writing a single line of code. Our tutorials and documentation will help you start in just minutes and our support team is there for you if you have any questions.

Live Demo

Microthemer Lite is a free trial that gives you full editing features and the same customer support paying customers receive. The only difference is that it limits you to editing/creating 9 'selectors’ e.g.

  1. The site title.
  2. The site description.
  3. An image, or all images.
  4. A link, or all links.
  5. The search site input field.
  6. The search site button.
  7. A post/page.
  8. The sidebar.
  9. The footer.
  10. Or any other 9 elements you choose, these are just examples.

The full program allows you to edit an unlimited number of elements – read on to find out how.
