Yes, I have used Thrive Theme Builder for quite sometime on my blog bloggingjoy.com. Previously I was using Genesis Authority Pro theme and I wanted to try their theme builder and so switched. It was a very good experience and I really enjoyed that journey of designing the entire website as per your need.
What is Thrive Theme Builder?
Thrive Theme Builder is the first visual drag-and-drop theme editor for WordPress that allows you to create the structure and layout for your site in less than 15 minutes.
- It’s a complete theme which will help you to create your entire website from scratch. Remember, this is not an additional plugin on top of a theme. Thrive Builder use ShapeShift theme internally and create a new design for you.
- The backend is supported by Thrive Architect plugin and you can customize each and ever post and pages using Thrive Architect further.
- You can follow a wizard and then easily choose each and every major elements of any website like header, logo, menu, footer, homepage, post page, page layout etc. And each one has plenty of ready to use templates to choose from which makes the work really cool and fun. Yes, creating a website with Thrive Builder is really fun.
My Experience Of Using Thrive Theme Builder
One problem I found with Thrive Builder is that to create a post with visual element you have to switch to Thrive Architect Editor and then only add all their elements. It was a really good experience, but gradually I was enjoying writing content on Gutenberg only. And I wanted to add elements on Gutenberg itself which Thrive Architect doesn’t offer. And that’s why I started looking for an addition Plugin and found Affiliate Booster Plugin which is simply amazing with many blocks. Later on I switched to Affiliate Booster theme from Thrive Builder.
That doesn’t mean Thrive Theme Builder is not a good product. It’s my personal choice not to use any website builder. But if you want to create visually appealing websites with ready to us templates then Thrive Theme Builder is the product for you. Remember you have to buy both Thrive Builder and Thrive Architect to get 100% control. Otherwise, you can also go for Thrive Membership Package to save huge money and get access to all the Thrive products.
