Like moths to a flame, human eyes are automatically drawn to a blog's featured images and will visually devour them without even intending to do so.

Your featured images must not only illustrate the content you’ve posted, but should also create a visual identity that works to consistently build your website's brand.

Go ahead and take a quick peek at your website’s blog grid. Do the images work together to create a unique website identity or do they lack an overarching design theme?

If you think your blog has room for improvement in this department, don’t worry.

We've got just the course to teach you How To Craft Featured Images That Engage Traffic and Boost Your Online Identity.

New Post List Element Added to Thrive Architect

Thrive Architect just got better.

If you’ve just updated and are using it, you might have noticed something new at the bottom of your elements panel:

You'll find the new Post List element at the bottom in Thrive Architect

You may remember that we previously had a Post Grid element, but just improved it by adding a world of front-end editing and logic rules. We also renamed it as the Post List.

With this element, you can dynamically display a custom list of your posts anywhere on your site that will auto-populate when you publish new content. It’s a great way to keep your website visitors around by promoting content similar to what they originally came for.

This is also a glimpse into the technology we’re developing for Thrive Theme Builder… but it’s already available in Thrive Architect right now! 

Check out the video and read the post below to learn how to use this new element to bring unbeatable customization to your pages and posts.
