Saving and Loading a Landing Page Template
This article explains how to create a new landing page template and the steps to load an existing template.
Creating a New WordPress Page
First of all, you need to create a new page: Go to Pages > Add New:
Give your new page a title, then, save the page as a draft or publish it.
Then, select the "Edit with Thrive Architect" button:
Now that you're in editing mode, you'll notice the editor sidebar, inside the page. Look for the "Page Setup" icon on the bottom of the editor:
Select "Change Landing Page Template":
This will open up a lightbox with a bunch of Landing Page templates that you can choose from, for your newly created page.
Choosing a Landing Page Template
Moving forward, if you want to build your page from scratch, removing any theme elements from the page, you can select the "Blank" template set:
Of course, maybe you don't want to build your page from scratch. No problem, you can choose one of the many predefined Landing Page templates!
Just scroll through the Landing Page template sets, choose the one that you see fit, and then select a certain template from that set:
Then, you need to customize the loaded page content to fit your needs. Perform all the typing, editing and changes needed, and then simply click "Save", on the bottom of the editor:
Saving the Landing Page Template
Moving forward, you can finally save your new landing page as a template. Click on "Page Setup" once again, and select "Save Landing Page":
On the lightbox that shows up, give your template a name and maybe some tags, as well (so that you can find it more easily) and then save the template:
Your saved template appears immediately in the Saved Landing Pages area, and is ready for use. Here's how to access it any other saved template:

- In editing mode, access Page Setup > Change Landing Page.
- Click the "Saved Landing Pages" tab, select your preferred template and click the "Choose Template" button:
The page you are currently editing is now overwritten by the template you selected!
