Is Thrive Theme Builder Right for Your WordPress Website?
Let’s be honest...
The first thing you had to do when setting up your WordPress website was pick a theme — and chances are it didn’t live up to your expectations.
That’s probably because it not only looked “meh” after activation, but it never gave you the ability to customize important features like:
- Core page templates
- ...just to name a few
So what can you do if you’re tired of having theme envy and are still struggling to achieve the website your online business needs?
Well, an innovative new theme solution — made specifically to help solopreneurs like you — is launching on March 2nd and this video post is going to give you the exclusive details.

The Problem With WordPress Themes & Theme Builders
For far too long, WordPress theme solutions have been pretty depressing for the DIY website builder and scrappy solopreneurs.
That’s because you’re forced to either choose between installing inflexible theme designs that don’t meet all your wants and needs...
...or hire an expensive web developer to create a custom theme for you.
But what bootstrapped solopreneur or business owner has the budget for that?!
And because you’re not an expert at CSS or HTML yourself, it’s impossible to use any of the advanced theme builder tools on the market since they were made specifically for web developers.
That's why we spent the last year+ working hard to develop a tool that can solve this frustrating theme customization problem for DIY solopreneurs and small business owners like you.
We call it Thrive Theme Builder and here’s how it can help you take your WordPress website to the next level.
Thrive Theme Builder Is THE Plug-and-Play Solution for Total Theme Design
Simply put, Thrive Theme Builder is a plug-and-play WordPress theme (you read that right… it’s an actual theme, NOT a plugin) that gives you pixel-by-pixel control over your website’s theme design.
Instead of having to be a web developer or designer to get the results you want, Thrive Theme Builder gives WordPress users the power to customize all their theme controlled elements with the same intuitive interface in our Thrive Architect page building plugin.
In fact, because Thrive Theme Builder doesn’t require any specialized coding or web design skills to use, it’s perfect for small businesses like online coaches, local business owners, consultants and content creators — or anyone who wants to build a high-converting WP site without having to hire a developer.
The fact that you don’t have to worry about learning any complicated code to build a unique website means that you can spend more time on your actual business!
And the speed at which Thrive Theme Builder allows you to create and launch a custom site means it’s the right tool if:
- You’re building a site from scratch
- You’re struggling to customize your site due to the inflexibility of most themes
- Your site hasn’t been able to convert readers into subscribers or customers yet
- You build conversion focused websites for clients
However, if your website is already up and running, you probably shouldn't swap your current theme out for Thrive Theme Builder if:
- You just have a “mini-site” that can be managed by a page builder like Thrive Architect alone
- You already have a ton of custom code on your website
- You only have 5 minutes to spare to complete the conversion
- You didn't actually build your site and don't have a proficient understanding of WordPress
- You're in E-Commerce and rely on WooCommerce (however, this will change in the future!)
So how exactly will Thrive Theme Builder help you build and launch a unique theme without so much tedious design work?
Design Your Core Page Templates
When designing a new theme with Thrive Theme Builder, you’ll need to establish a set of Core Page Templates that will control the vast majority of pages displayed on your site.
These core templates manage those pages on your site that have a single design, but manage a large number of pages (since they’re populated based on the amount of dynamic content hosted on your site).
In this context, dynamic content means anything that populates a repeating page template (like the featured image, title and excerpt text on your blog reel pages).
Specific to Thrive Theme Builder, the core page templates will always include at least your:
- Blog list page
- Blog archive page
- Standard post
- Default page
- 404 page
To design your site using Thrive Theme Builder, you’ll first need to customize each of these template pages to make sure the basics are covered across your website.
But that begs the question, how do you get each of these core page templates designed fast using Thrive Theme Builder?
Theme Design Made Quick & Easy with Page Section Templates
The truth is that the technological power of Thrive Theme Builder comes from two things. Its:
- Intuitive, drag & drop visual editor, and...
- Overwhelming number of template libraries available for you to use.
And what sort of template libraries are we talking about here?
A variety of page section templates that — when pieced together — can help you quickly create the most important multiple instance pages on your site. These page section areas include your:
- Top area
- Content area
- Sidebar area
- Bottom area
In thrive theme builder, you simply click on the page section area you want to modify (either in the actual Thrive Editor window or in the left sidebar's Main Options tab diagram pictured above) to open the respective page section template library lightbox:
This is why you can design and customize each one of your core theme template pages so quickly.
Once your template loads on page, you can begin customizing it to your heart's content using the very same Thrive Editor interface you're familiar with if you use Thrive Architect.
Customizing any area of your core page templates really is that easy and why designing a unique theme with Thrive Theme Builder doesn't take long to complete.
Setting Up Your Theme’s Basic Typography
Another fast action benefit of Thrive Theme Builder is that changing your theme’s typography settings, only takes a few clicks.
All you have to do is enter the Typograph section of your Theme Builder Dashboard, and then edit each of the following text features:
- Paragraph text
- List text
- Hyperlink text
- Plain text
- Blockquote text
- Preformatted text
Use the Thrive Editor interface to set the font type, size color, height, spacing, and hover effects (for the hyperlink)...
...and those new settings will dynamically update across your entire theme!
Thrive Theme Builder Technology — Across Your Entire Site
Finally, several of the most powerful features you’ve seen appear in Thrive Architect recently were actually directly related to the development of Thrive Theme Builder.
And if you’re already a Thrive Architect user, that’s an amazing benefit because — with the addition of Thrive Theme Builder to your site — you’ll have these powerful features at your disposal anywhere you need them.
These features include:
