How to Build a Better 404 Page

Your "page not found" 404 page is one only a small fraction of your visitors will ever see. It's still a page that can be worth optimizing, though and since it represents an error, it's a great opportunity to help your poor, lost visitors out and re-engage them.

In today's video, you'll get a quick tour through a new option added to all Thrive Themes plus 3 suggestions on how to build a better 404 error page.

New Theme Released: Voice

Today, we are happy to announce our latest new theme release: Voice.

Voice is a theme with a unique design, especially suited for writers and bloggers. The theme puts your content in the spotlight and emphasizes great readability and text formatting.

While this is certainly not the first theme centered around the written word, one thing that sets Voice apart is that it combines a beautiful blog and highly readable layout with the Thrive Themes conversion features that you've come to know and love.

It's the perfect theme for attracting an audience with your writing and then turning your visitors into avid fans, subscribers and customers.

Introducing: Live and Effortless Table Building for WordPress

Out of the box, WordPress doesn’t offer you any way of creating tables, unless you’re able to add the code for them yourself.  This is quite a big shortcoming, given how popular table functionality is.

Meet the Thrive Social Buttons

In the latest update to our themes, we've added a new social sharing feature. It adds a set of mobile responsive social media buttons to your site.

At first glace, that's neat, but nothing special. But there's more to this feature than meets the eye. What you get with this feature isn't just any old collection of social sharing buttons:
