Thrive Architect 2018 review of the drag and drop page builder

Thrive Architect Review 2018

Ever since I started using WordPress I’ve been looking to find a drag and drop page builder that is as easy to use as Thrive Architect. I just had to get that out right at the start, this product is fantastic.

Thrive Architect is from the well known Thrive Themes and is the next step on from the famous thrive content builder.

There were teething issues, don’t get me wrong, but the result now is that the thrive team struggles seem to have been caught up with. Certainly the support has been nothing but brilliant in the last month or so.

How much is it?

Architect page builder is a onetime fee of $67, it’s nothing. The features you have with this page builder are worth an awful lot more than the price

What are the main features out of the box?

    Thrive Leads direct integration

    Works with most other page builders
Thrive Architect comes with over 220 landing page designs out of the box

Who is it for?

Its for anyone who wants to use WordPress. It makes editing your pages and posts so much easier. If you then join it up with the Generatepress theme you can pretty much customise everything you need to in order to get the website you want as an outcome.  

You could use the thrive themes they have created but for me the best combo is using the builder plugin alongside Generatepress.

How good is it? 

We love it here at Tao Digital Marketing, we will install it onto nearly all of the websites we look after on behalf of our clients. We tend to pair it up with Thrive Leads, which is just a conversion boosting dream of a plugin.

We’ve had one or two issues with it conflicting with the pre-existing systems and plugins on wordpress websites. This is particularly apparent with websites using Fusion builder.  One of our large clients has a site built with this and we can’t use Thrive architect to edit existing pages or landing page design.

For building a website from scratch though or building new pages with thrive architect it proves itself as a great builder plugin for wordpress. 

Can a novice webmaster use it?

With an installed WordPress CMS and a theme already installed, there is no reason whatsoever that a novice WordPress business owner can’t use this wordpress page builder.

The Thrive team have built a plugin for wordpress in architect that provides everything a website designer or developer might want. 

One of the great things we have found with Thrive are the vast amounts of helpful resources they offer. There doesn't seem to be a day that goes but without them sharing a video resource or adding new features to the offering.

  • I have been using thrive architect for about 3 months and built a whole website with it. It is a really amazing page builder.

    Their is one big flaw and I’m wondering if you have a suggestion to get around it.

    You can’t build any global elements like a header, navigation or footer that gets updated globally. You can make templates and use those, but they are not connected so if you want to change something, you have to make that change everywhere you used that template.

    • Hey Mike,

      This is something we struggled with for a while actually. We ended up finding Generate Press, it’s a very very light theme which when you buy the Premium version ($40, so peanuts) it allows you to change all of that information within the customise tab.

      Or, Thrive themselves are due to imminently release a full theme builder. You will be able to use this to change any of the areas you have mentioned through Thrive Architect itself. Really good for us non-coders!! Here’s a link to the first look at the thrive theme builder page.
