Therefore, Thrive Architect is the go-to answer for all your content and visual-based subject matter.

Thus, there is nothing to stop you from flaunting that great idea in your head to the rest of the world.

No design or coding skills required

Keeping convenience as a major issue, the website template comes with eighty awesome and conversion-based landing page templates.

This again keeps you far ahead in creating and working with professional-looking pages, sales and opt-in pages, webinar pages, product launch pages and homepages with no issues at all.

What are the features that make Thrive Architect a fun and easy template to use?

Thrive Architect tries to make your business work much less complicated and allows more creativity at every step.

No changes in content that already exists

All your previous content will remain the same as they had been before updating, saving you the time and trouble to make changes on each and every post all over again.

Creating new content

Creating new content is the fun process, where you can search for, discover and use fantastic features to give a unique touch to your professional website.

For example, “column layouts” help you to maintain the neat-and-clean look with just a click or two with equal freedom in adding, removing or resizing them as you need.

Or choose a background spanning the entire screen for that punch, no matter what device the viewer uses to view your website.

Make your viewers go “wow!”

Show the difference between a plain old website and yours by giving a magazine look with Total Font Customization. Here you can view over 700 typeface options and custom fonts.

This makes everything you create look like a professionally-designed poster or magazine cover.

You can also go for adding hover elements to all elements or even inside a container element.

Or, you could add subtle details like rounded boxes, drop-shadow effect or customized online.

Give a new look to your old content

Revamp your previous content with these directly-editable texts, images, headlines and column layouts.

However, style elements like background sections, buttons and content boxes which have been created through Thrive Content Builder would need migration to Thrive Architect for customization.

Migration of elements is recommended only when you wish to change a document style.

However, you can only edit the text on elements like call-to-action boxes, guarantee boxes, or pricing boxes but not the style.

You also get a brand-new visual editing component. Using this, you can create opt-in forms, countdown banners, result pages and pages variations.

Nevertheless, to avail the latest visual editing interface, you need to upgrade to the latest version.
