Easy Way to Customize Your Theme

We've made it a point to make both our themes and any Content Builder or Landing Page content you create flexible and easy to customize. But sometimes, you might want to make a change to your theme that you can't find a customizer option for. This is where our custom CSS fields come in.

Watch the video below to see an easy way to tweak and change specific elements on your website, using custom CSS. Don't worry, it's not as complicated as you think:

Say Goodbye to Related Posts Plugins

A good way of keeping visitors engaged on your site for longer and lowering your bounce rate is to add a list or gallery of related posts to the bottom of each blog post. After all, if a someone's just read a post, you can be pretty sure they're interested in more posts on a similar topic.

Watch the video below to see how the Thrive Themes team have taken the "related posts" concept and made it better:

Cloning Posts & Pages with 1 Click

Since day one, Thrive Themes have featured a great time-saving addition that you might have missed up until now. The feature in question is one click cloning.

In this post, you'll discover how the feature works and see some examples of how you can use it to your advantage.

Note: the feature shown here is a theme feature. It is only available when you have a Thrive Theme installed. If you use Thrive Architect or other plugins made by Thrive Themes, but a different theme, you won't see the "clone" link as shown below.

Update! – The Thrive Content Builder plugin, also presented in the video above, has been updated, along with a few of the features presented in the video.

For example, the “Autoresponder Code” button from the “Lead Generation options” window has been changed to the “Connect to Service” button, through which you can also set up your API Connection, apart from inserting the HTML code:

Apart from this, other minor changes may be encountered. These changes consist in the plugin’s design modifications and in displacing certain buttons, such as the “Event Manager” button from the “Button menu”.
