Seamless Short Codes in the Content Builder

Thrive Content Builder comes loaded with an ever growing number of elements that you can use to create rich, engaging and high-converting posts and pages. But what if you want to add an element from outside the Content Builder, such as a short code provided by your theme or a different plugin?

While Content Builder has always worked with short codes, in our latest update, we’ve improved the way you can add short code elements to your content. Watch this video to see how the new feature works:

How to Build a Better 404 Page

Update for March, 2020: With the release of Thrive Theme Builder, you now have total control over your 404 pages along with your sidebars, widget areas, footers, and more. Thrive Theme Builder is the first truly drag-and-drop WordPress theme builder on the market and gives you unparalleled design freedom for your entire site. Get inspired by the best 404 pages, and start building yours.

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.

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.

Of course there are a few plugins out there that help you build tables using the WordPress platform, but they all have one big problem in common.  A problem that we’ve just solved with the latest version of the Content Builder.

Blazing Fast Images

We are excited to release our latest Thrive Themes update, which will provide a significant speed boost to any pages on your site containing images. And the best thing is: this feature is fully automated and despite how much of a difference it can make, you'd be hard pressed to ever notice it.

Exclusively for Thrive Suite customers, Thrive Themes now automatically optimizes every uploaded image, using the web's best image optimization and compression engine.

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:

Thrive Content Builder – We’re Alive and Kicking

We launched the first version of our new Content Builder plugin on Thursday last week and the response from you has been amazing... thank you.

As you probably know, we always like to do a pre-release deal for new products we create. You get a new piece of software at a great price and we get feature suggestions, real-life testing by many users and much more.​

This was no different for this early release of Thrive Content Builder... except for scale. We have never seen this level of enthusiasm or this much interaction from new customers, for what is "just" a small pre-launch.

How to Improve Your Opt-In Form Conversion Rates (Part 2)

In the first opt-in form clinic post, we got a very lively reaction and over 30 user submissions for this follow-up post.

After the difficult task of selecting just a few of those, we're now ready to have another look at real examples of opt-in forms and what steps you can take to improve them.

Be warned: in this post, we're going deeper into the topic than before and if you invest the time into reading it, you'll know far more about how to turn your visitors into email subscribers than most people ever will.
