Import/Export Feature for Custom Landing Pages in Thrive Architect

Shane Melaugh   131

Since the release of Thrive Architect, we've started rolling out new templates and tutorials on a regular basis and we've gotten a very positive response from our users.

One of the features available in Thrive Architect is the option to export custom designed landing pages, so you can import them on other websites. So that's exactly what we created!


Watch the video for a quick demonstration of the whole process. You'll see how you can load a landing page, make custom changes to it and then apply your very own landing page on a different website.

Quick Thumbnails for Your Custom Templates

To make a quick screengrab of your new template , I recommend using one of these tools (both free):

Usually, I zoom out on the page, so that I don't have to resize the image after taking it. Simply press the Ctrl key and use the + and - keys or the scroll-wheel to zoom in and out in your browser.

We hope you enjoy this feature! If you have any questions or feedback, please leave a comment below.

For help with the use of this feature or technical issues, please let us know in the support forum.

  • Shane, you guys have outdone yourselves….again! Thrive gets better and better every day. In a world of vendors that seem to disappear shortly after purchase, you guys keep throwing benefit upon benefit on your customers. Thanks!

    • Thank you very much, Mark! I know what you mean about the mysteriously disappearing vendors. Had a few issues like that myself as well.
      At Thrive, we’re far too busy building more features and products to disappear, though. 🙂

  • Hurray! I’ve been dreading having to copy and paste a couple of customized and time consuming landing pages one step at a time.

    I was ready to clone an entire site and then delete all the pages down to the landing page to avoid doing this.

    You made my day Shane and team! Thank you!

  • Thanks so much for adding new features. I’m a relatively new member, but it shows me that I made the right decision buying ThriveThemes.

  • Really cool feature! I’m a new annual member with multiple websites and I was just wondering if I could import a custom LP template. I was about to go to the forums and knowledge base to find out to go about doing it when I received your email informing us of this. It’s like you’re reading my mind! Thanks, and this is why I chose as opposed to your competition, you guys are constantly innovating and evolving. Great Job!

    • Thank you very much, Ronny! We love doing the mind-reading thing around here, as you’ll see with more future updates. 🙂

  • Great feature. But it would have been even cooler if you can export a standalone page that can be uploaded using FTP to any server that didn’t have thrive themes installed. I would love to be able to build landing pages for people using thrive themes and then be able to upload them to a server.

    • Hi Eddy,

      That goes quite a lot further than what we’ve done here. I can’t promise that we’ll ever go in a direction like that.

    • The new features are awesome – I appreciate all that is happening with the great tools at Thrive.

      I agree with Eddy though, I would love to see an export to html feature also!!

      There are times when you really don’t want a whole WordPress installation, especially when you have a high traffic page.

      It would be super handy to be able to export a landing page to html so that the page could be used stand alone. It would save server resources, when you have a high traffic campaign going.

      Please, please, pretty please consider this feature request! Thanks Shane 🙂

  • It’s pretty amazing to see how much value and new features you are putting into an already great product. This saves so much time and just being able to pull up ready made custom templates is really awesome and will cut serious time of website development. Awesome work guys!

  • Hey Shane, it’s not Christmas yet, isn’t it!
    Great work, I’d like to suggest a higher membership fee 🙂
    Thanks for your never ending passion in making WordPress the best CMS.

    • Thank you very much for your motivating comment, Christoph!

      Higher membership fees are coming soon (not for existing members, though).

    • Thanks for your comment, Gary. Jing is a great little tool. A bit slow, sometimes, but definitely a great tool to have.

  • Great new feature! One day earlier would have been even greater. 😉
    I saw the option, but didn’t know how to use it.

    I now managed by copying the HTML-code from the Content Builder on one site to the CB on the other site. I was happy anyway, because although I had to make some ajustments (mainly to the colours), it saved me a lot of time.

    But this is much, much better!! So thanks!

  • Well done, Shane, Paul & the whole Thrive team. Been anxiously waiting for this one for a while, so great move on your part. And thanks for all the constant improvements and additions you keep rolling out – that’s rare and a credit to your high standards.

    • Perhaps that is “in the works”. I notice that was registered by Shane a little more than a year ago. In the meantime, we could use some file sharing site that includes thumbnail images.

  • This feature was the one thing I preferred about OP2 vs. TCB. Now TCB has the export/ import feature I am well chuffed 🙂
    Just to confirm, this could be any custom page built and saved using TCB right? It doesn’t have to be a landing page, does it?

    • Thank you very much, Scott!

      The import/export feature only works for landing pages, as we only have information about the entire page when you’re using a landing page. When you’re editing content in the content area of your theme, we can’t export all the related information for that page.

    • Just update the plugin to the latest version (you can do this directly in the wp-admin plugins list) and you’re good to go!

  • Shane, there is one thing that I miss from Thrive Content Builder that would make it truly amazing. Right now, it is the absolute best way to easily build individual pages. But it doesn’t lend itself to being a full website builder, for this simple reason: There is no “page type” structure. Let me explain what I mean:

    The process most website building companies use is to
    1) Create wireframes on paper or some wireframe program
    2) Build “page types” based on those wireframes
    3) Create page instances based on those page types

    For example, let’s say I want to have a page type called “Feature Page Type”. Based on this, I build 10 “Feature Pages”.

    In the future, if I want to change the structure of my “Feature Pages”, I can then simply edit the “Feature Page Type”, and all 10 of my feature pages will be changed accordingly.

    This addition, although a pretty big change in the structure of your software I would imagine, would take it to the next level and make it compete at an enterprise level. I hope you consider this suggestion. Let me add also that I still love Thrive Content Builder, the only problem is that I want to be able to use it as my full website builder tool and not just build individual pages, and this would really let me do that! Thanks

    • Hello Yusuf,

      The use you’re talking about here would be in the domain of a theme more than landing pages. That’s what page templates in a theme are about.

      I’m not sure if it’s reasonable to extend the functionality of TLP to this degree. At that point, we’d have a CMS as a plugin for a CMS.

      Also (and this is my main concern), to make this really flexible, it would have to have a ton of options and it would turn into a developers-only kind of tool, which isn’t what we’re aiming to do with TLP.

  • This is a very useful and time saving new addition. Just a week ago, I submitted this feature as a request and now it’s here. I’ve been developing for 5 years and Thrive provides the best in class products. You’re spoiling us Shane 🙂

    • That’s what we do, Tim. 🙂

      I’m glad we could provide a much needed feature for you, with this update.

  • Wow Wow Wow !!! I can’t believe how awesome are you and your product. You are spoiling us and making us lazy. hahaha lol.

    Thanks Shane and team for this awesome update. I am curious to know the answer of two questions

    1. Is there any new plugin you are thinking to release it (if you have any plan for it). If the answer is yes than i am looking towards it.

    2. When we are able to import and export the blog page or other page (excluding Landing page) as it is on other site (if possible).

    You guys rocks !

    • Hello Sanjay,

      Thanks for your comment!

      1) We have many plugins lined up, yes. 🙂
      We also have several large improvements and changes to existing plugins planned. There will be at least one new plugin release this year and many more updates.

      2) We have a plan to enable “content templates” and when we create those, we will probably add an import/export feature as well (assuming we can make it work, technically).

  • Hi Shane,
    I’m using Thrive Themes Version 1.101.11 on a Mac with the latest OS. The export does not appear to be a zip file, and therefore won’t import onto the new site. Is this a known issue ? Thanks.

    • Hello,

      You can’t import a template from just any website, but you can re-create almost anything you see on any website, using Thrive Landing Pages.

      • Wait, is there a way to do this for normal pages you’ve customized? I just realized the page I want to save and replicate is not a landing page, it’s just a regular page I’ve customized using the TCB…

  • This is outstanding! I used this feature today. Worked flawlessly.
    Thank you for continuing to push for excellence, and delivering on it!

  • Awesome new feature – thank you!

    I would love to see an export to html option in thrive landing pages. There are times when a full WordPress installation is not feasible for just one page.

    If there were an export to html feature, a stand alone page would solve the server load issues at high traffic times.

    Please please, pretty please consider this feature, Shane 🙂

  • Such amazing, innovative products time and time again from Shane and his equally amazing, innovative crew. One of the greatest things about Thrive Themes products is that they’re constantly chipping away how much time it takes to implement their ingenius ideas!

  • Sounds like a great feature. Unfortunately it doesn’t work. I have the latest version and the export feature is not there. There is an import feature but that’s completely useless without the export feature.
