Creating a quiz from scratch can be a bit tiresome…
Especially if you want to create a feature rich quiz with lots of branching path questions, a cool looking Splash Page and a Social Share Badge that people can share on Social Media after they complete your quiz.
Now with Thrive Quiz Builder, you can duplicate an entire existing quiz with just one click!
Check out the video above to see how you can use this feature in your copy of Thrive Quiz Builder.
You may have noticed that the latest release of Thrive Architect is full of awesome new features.
In recent posts, we’ve showcased a few of these upgrades including the Global Button Styles and Scroll Behavior features.
And we're not slowing down any time soon. Today we're announcing yet another email marketing tool integration for our Lead Generation forms in Thrive Themes plugins.
In the latest version of Thrive Architect, we've included a brand new feature that will become central to how our templates and landing pages will evolve in 2019: global button styles.
Check out the video to see how this feature can save you a lot of time and to discover the possibilities global styles and global colors will open up in the near future.
A question I'm often asked is:
“How can I create and sell online courses with WordPress?”
I’ve always wanted to have a good answer for this problem, but could never give one in good conscience.
Because every time I set out to assemble a recommended tools list for building paid online courses, I run into problems. I tried many times, but I never found a solution that addressed my 4 critical concerns.
A while ago, we released a new headers & footers feature for landing pages. While working on further improvements to it we noticed that there were some header designs we couldn't accomplish the way we wanted, with the current features.
As a solution, we've added a new “Scroll Behavior” feature in Thrive Architect. Watch the video to see how you can use this feature to create awesome header layouts and how it can be used in various other ways to enhance your pages.
When you need to place Call-to-Action (CTA) buttons on your website, should you limit yourself to the standard designs you’re used to… or can you achieve something far more engaging?
Well, if you build your posts and pages using Thrive Architect, you can leverage the Content Box element to fancy up your button designs however you want.
“Fancy up how?” you ask.
Well, how about a Content Box acting as a button where the entire area is clickable, uses engaging hover effects and offers unlimited ways to incorporate, modify and resize icons or images within them?
Creating online courses on your website can be an intimidating task.
With lessons to plan, visual, audio and text media to craft as well as checklists and course workbooks to create, there’s a lot to be done before launch day.
To do all that, you'll need to focus on creating great content instead of wasting precious time worrying about how it all looks. That's not to say design isn't important, it's just not what you should be spending very much time on.
That’s why we just added 14 new content box templates to Thrive Architect’s Styled Box element to help you achieve your course design objectives.
