Editing Video/Audio Post Types with Thrive Architect

If you have created a video/audio post type, you can customize the video or the audio from both Thrive Architect, as well as Thrive Theme Builder. Firstly, you have to create a video or audio post type. We have separate articles that explain how to do that:

Then, you can edit these posts using the WordPress settings, as shown in each article.

After creating the posts, you can go ahead and access Thrive Theme Builder, and either use one of your already existing video/audio post templates or create a new one.

You can get more information about how to create a new post template from this article.

When creating a new video or audio post template, don’t forget to select “Video” or “Audio” as post formats. Here is an example to showcase what I mean:

All you have to do is to click on the video, and its options will appear in the left sidebar:

Just make sure that the “Audio” option is selected in the “Choose Post Format” field:
