It’s at the price point where it’s affordable for anybody, somebody just getting started, but it’s at the level of quality where it can scale with you and you can build a million dollar business off of it.
We started using Thrive a few months ago and are beyond impressed. As the owner of a digital agency I’ve noticed an increase in conversions since we switched and I continue to be impressed with pretty much every aspect!
What Makes Thrive Architect Different?
Build at the Speed of Thought
with Instant Drag & Drop Editing
When you load up the Thrive Architect editor, everything follows one simple idea. We call it “click-to-edit”. If you want to change something, you click on it and you’ll see your edits instantly. If you want to move something, you click, then drag and drop. We’ve removed every obstacle between you and building the content you want.

What Will YOU Build With Thrive Architect?
Thrive Architect is not the only visual editor for WordPress, but it's the only one that is laser focused on business websites — built by and for DIY entrepreneurs.
Create a High-Converting Homepage that You Can Be Proud Of
Your homepage is probably one of the most visited pages on your site. Is it making the impression you want it to make? Is it engaging visitors and boosting your conversions? With Thrive Architect page builder, you can use one of our templates to build a beautiful, professional looking homepage or improve the layout on your existing homepage by adding things like columns, horizontal opt-in forms, a stylish gallery of your blog posts, social share icons and more.
Create Sales Pages that Make You Look Like a Copywriting Pro
Sales pages are the bane of WordPress users. If you’ve ever tried to build a sales page using the WordPress editor, you know for sure that it wasn’t made to build the kind of layout you need on a sales page. And never mind the layout, what about the copy!? Fear no more, Thrive Architect comes with everything you need to build stunning sales pages. And what’s more, we’ve even included tutorialized sales page templates that make copywriting fill-in-the-blank easy.
Landing Pages to Validate Your Business & Grow Your Mailing List
Every online business needs a larger mailing list. That’s why we provide you with dozens of optimized landing pages you can use to present your free offers and grow your mailing list. Many successful startups began with a simple landing page to get leads and validate their business idea. That’s exactly the kind of page you can create with Thrive Architect, in record time!
Write Beautifully Formatted Blog Posts that Get More Traffic & Shares
Blogging is evolving and if you want to keep up, you can no longer just write a wall of text and publish it. Clever content marketers have long known that well formatted content, including things like highlight boxes, styled lists, images and other media, click-to-tweet quotes and more, get much higher engagement. That’s why we’ve included all of those elements in the Thrive Architect toolbox.
Webinar Pages, Product Launch Pages & More…
Whatever your marketing strategy, we’ve got a suitable set of pages for you. You can easily build all the pages you need to announce, get leads for and host a live webinar event. We’ve also made it easier than ever to create a professional looking product launch sequence to help get your next business off the ground.
Want to Get Fancy? Here Are Some of the Advanced Tricks this WordPress Page Builder Has Up Its Sleeves
We believe in rapid implementation to get your ideas and content out there, as quickly and smoothly as possible. However, we don’t want to limit your imagination. If you’re an advanced user (or you just like tinkering), Thrive Architect has got you covered.
Ultra-Flexible Column Layouts
Want to create a column layout? Easy: just drop elements next to each other. No special column container, row, segment section or whatever else is needed when using our page builder. Want to change the layout? Just add, remove, drag-and-drop or resize your columns with the wave of your cursor.
Attention-Grabbing Text & Image Combinations
Add background images with text overlays to create visually striking sections — anywhere on your page. And because text on images is often difficult to read, we’ve made it extra easy for you to add colored overlays or gradient overlays to your images. This way, you can add your brand colors to images and make the text really POP... no Photoshop required!
Get that Glossy Magazine Look With Total Font Customization
With Thrive Architect, you have total control over typography. Thanks to our typeface options and access to over 700 custom fonts, you can create beautiful, poster- and magazine-style text layouts, make your titles stand out and give your site that “uniquely you” look.
Full-Width Layouts With a Wow Factor
Create a background that spans the entire screen width - no matter which theme you use and no matter what screen your visitor sees your content on. Create vertical split layouts for an added wow factor.
Advanced, Attention Grabbing Hover Effects
You can easily apply hover effects to all elements. But we’ve taken it a step further: with our page builder you can even apply hover effects to everything inside a container element.
Style Every Detail, No Coding Needed
Want to tweak the roundedness of a button corner? Add a subtle drop-shadow effect? Add an outline, but only on one side? You can do it all — with ease — and with a live updating preview as you make your changes.
Create the Perfect Experience for Your Mobile Visitors
These days, most websites get more than half their visitors from phones and other mobile devices. Every template in Thrive Architect and everything you build with this plugin is mobile responsive — out of the box. In most cases, if you just create your page using our templates and forget about checking how things look on mobile, the result will still look great on smartphones AND tablets. However, we know you want more control than that. So if you’re building complex and unique layouts, Thrive Architect gives you the power to optimize your visitor experience, regardless of screen size.
Because of that, there are 3 major mobile responsiveness features in Thrive Architect:
Instantly Preview Your Page on Different Screen Sizes
As you build your page, you’re always just 2 clicks away from checking what it looks like on different screen sizes. No page reloads needed.
Toggle the Visibility of Elements and Entire Content Blocks
For any element (or any container with multiple elements in it), you can define which screen sizes it should be shown (or hidden) on. That way, you can create the perfect layout for every screen size.
Tweak Every Detail With Mobile Responsive Editing
To make it even easier and faster for you, you can even tweak the layout and position of elements to be different on different screen sizes. No duplicate elements with show/hide needed.
Bring Your Website into the 21st Century With
Dynamic Animations & Actions
A static website is a boring website. And while we don’t advocate overloading a site with animations and actions, these things can make your website more effective, when used the right way. For any element, you can easily apply entry animations, hover effects, tooltips, on screen text animations, and more...
Don’t Settle for “Lazy” Front End Editors
The Dark Side of the "Visual" Editor for WordPress Market...
Front-end editors (a.k.a. Visual editors) for WordPress are all the rage these days. Back when we first created Thrive Architect (called “Thrive Content Builder” at the time), we were the first to make a front-end editor. But since then, the trend has caught on and many other plugins of this kind have appeared. Unfortunately for you, there’s one big problem many of these other page builders have: they’re only pretending to be front-end editors…
This happens when a developer chooses the lazy option (because creating a real, front-end visual editor is difficult). Instead of letting you edit on the front-end of a page, they only show you the front-end of the page and then open a typical (back-end) editor in an overlay or in a sidebar.
Basically, they’re trying to sell you a front-end editor, but they don’t want to do the hard work of actually building a front-end editor.
This is not front end editing:
This is front end editing:
When you see a simple demo of this, you might be thinking: “does that really matter?” the difference seems small...
But the reason we don’t settle for lazy editing is because these small differences add up to make a big difference. Building a simple landing page involves between 70 and 150 interactions with the page (clicking something, editing something…). A more complex homepage or sales page can involve 1,000 interactions or more. If you have to wait a little longer on each of those interactions, that adds up. And if you have to save a change before you see the result, then go back and edit again, save again etc., it can double or triple the amount of interactions you have to perform, to complete your page design.
So the real question is:
How much are slow, lazy editors costing you? (if you value your time)
Rapid Implementation: Bring the Speed Factor to Your Online Business
Our obsession with speed, usability and true front end editing means that Thrive Architect is fast and even fun to use. But it’s not just user friendliness that makes the speed factor so important.
At Thrive Themes, we believe in Rapid Implementation. Successful entrepreneurs and startup founders agree that the faster you can move in your business, the more likely you are to succeed.
Being able to build and edit pages quickly, turn your ideas into landing pages, funnels and content, allows you to stay ahead of the pack. Rapid Implementation gives you a competitive edge. Having a fast, intuitive editor like Thrive Architect, doesn’t only save you time, it also makes you more productive and frees up your attention. You can focus on growing your business, instead of wrestling with technology that won’t do what you need.
Best of all: none of these features are special “pro” elements that are locked behind a higher pricing tier. Every conversion element (and every element below) is included with Thrive Architect when you purchase a stand-alone license or Thrive Suite.
Meet the Conversion Focused Building Blocks in Thrive Architect
These elements are made specifically to help you grow your business and boost your conversions.
Call to Action Buttons
For buy buttons or any other call to action. Give your visitors a big, friendly button to click on.
Show your visitors the most powerful form of social proof for any website: testimonials from other customers.
An oldie but a goodie, the bullet point list with custom icons and styling gives you the opportunity to present your selling points in a concise way.
Credit Card Icons
Fully scalable credit card icons give your visitors a clear signal for a purchase and create trust.
Lead Generation Forms
Add fully customizable lead generation forms anywhere inside your content, to grow your mailing list.

Animated Countdown Timers
Add a sense of urgency to your pages with the animated countdown timer and evergreen countdown timer.
Hide content blocks until a certain amount of time has passed. This is perfect for sales videos, where you can reveal the purchase button only after enough time has passed to reach the "pitch" part of the video.
Add fully customizable pricing tables with or without toggle anywhere inside your content, to increase sales.
Insert a contact form on your page and customize every element of the form in true click-to-edit fashion. No need for an extra contact form plugin!
Use the pre-designed guarantee box element on sales pages to decrease buying resistance and increase your conversions.
Adding a call-to-action box to your pages will grab your visitor's attention and guide it where you want it: the call-to-action button.

Frequently Asked Questions
Will this work with my WordPress theme?
Yes. You can install Thrive Architect alongside your current WordPress theme. If you get Thrive Suite, we recommend you use Thrive Architect alongside our fully customizable WordPress theme — Thrive Theme Builder. But it will work with ANY WordPress theme you have installed on your website.
Can I use this on my wordpress.com blog?
Yes. Thrive Architect and the entire Thrive Suite set of themes and plugins can be installed and activated on WordPress.com websites IF you upgrade to a "Business" or "eCommerce" plan. However, Thrive Suite is optimized for self-hosted, wordpress.org websites.
Is this page built with Thrive Architect?
Yes! This entire page is built solely with Thrive Architect. No sneaky CSS or other coding hacks going on! And chances are big we're currently running an A/B test on this page with Thrive Optimize!
What happens if I don't renew my Thrive Suite or Thrive Architect subscription?
What you've built with Thrive Architect (or any of the Thrive Suite tools for that matter) will stay intact and working. However, you won't be able to get support, updates or use any of our premium templates once your subscription expires. Also, if you choose to restart your subscription after it expires, you'll have to do so at whatever the current price is. That's right, the price you subscribe at is the price you stay at for as long as you maintain an active subscription!
Can I A/B test my landing pages?
Thrive Optimize is an A/B testing add-on for Thrive Architect. That means if you purchase either Thrive Suite or the Thrive Apprentice + Thrive Optimize bundle, you can easily and quickly A/B test your landing pages to increase your conversions.
Is this complicated and difficult to learn?
At its most basic, Thrive Architect isn't more complicated to use than a word processor. But of course, you'll want to do much more with Thrive Architect than you could ever do with a word processor. So yes, it will take a bit of learning and getting used to. We have an extensive library of help articles and step-by-step tutorials that make this easy for you.
Is support available with my purchase?
Yes. Free support is included with your purchase of Thrive Suite or Thrive Architect — and available as long as your subscription is in good standing.
Can I buy Thrive Architect as a standalone plugin?
Yes. A single site license of Thrive Architect (or Thrive Architect + Thrive Optimize) is available on a yearly subscription plan. It's also available as part of Thrive Suite.
Can I customize my blog layout, headers and other theme elements with Thrive Architect?
No. If you want to fully customize your WordPress theme (including header, footer, blog layout, blog list, 404 pages, custom post types, etc.), you'll want to use Thrive Theme Builder. Thrive Theme Builder comes included inside Thrive Suite, or you can also purchase it as a standalone, single site license theme on a yearly subscription.
Should I just get Thrive Architect or the entire Thrive Suite?
Depends. If you're just looking for a powerful visual page builder on a single site, getting Thrive Architect by itself makes sense. If you want to add landing page A/B testing to the mix, get Thrive Architect + Thrive Optimize. But if you need to build multiple websites, and want to layer additional functionality to those sites (such as the ability to fully customize your WordPress theme, build your email list with conversion focused opt-in forms, build and sell online courses, incorporate engaging quizzes into your content, use scarcity countdown timers in your product launches, etc.) — Thrive Suite is online business building toolkit you've been looking for.
Clean Up Your Plugins List, Improve Your Website
Every WordPress expert says you should keep your number of plugins to a minimum. It just makes sense — the more plugins you have installed, the more code is loading in the background of your site, slowing down your page load times.
Even worse, installing multiple plugins developed by different third-party providers means a higher chance of conflict between all those different plugins. There's never any guarantee different plugins will "play nice" together on your website...
Thrive Themes customers have told us about how much our products have helped them clean up their sites.
