I’m sure you’re excited to get your template imported and installed into your WordPress site straight away.
If you’re not too sure where to start, I created this tutorial page just for you.
Let’s get started.
I’ve tried to make this tutorial as simple as possible to follow, but if you get stuck please contact me using the contact page.
Let’s get to it.
What you will need
Here’s what you’ll need.
- 1 x purchased homepage template zip file.
- 1 x Active WordPress website with any theme installed.
- 1 x latest version of the Thrive Content Builder plugin, installed and activated. (Remember these templates only work with WordPress hosted sites that have the Thrive Content Builder plugin installed and activated. Click here to get your copy of TCB if you don’t have it).
Make sure you have the template file in zip-format, and that it’s located somewhere accessible on your computer such as your desk-top.
Step One: Log into your WordPress site and add a new page, or edit your existing homepage if you have one.
Once you have logged into your WordPress dashboard, navigate pages, then click on the page you want to edit and use the template on.
If you want to create a fresh new page for this template, simply click Add New. See image below.
- Add New page or…
- Click on a page you want to edit. In the screen shot above, I’m simply using Test Page.
Step Two: Launch Thrive Content Builder page editor.
Once you have Created and Saved your new page as a draft, click on the Edit with Thrive Content Builder button inside the editor. See image below.
This will open up a new tab in your web browser with the front page in Thrive editor mode.
Step Three: Load your template into the page
Click on Thrive Landing Pages drop down menu and select Import Landing Page. See image below.
Now find your purchased template zip-file on your computer, and drag and drop it straight into your media file. See image below.
Once your template is uploaded, select it and hit the Import File button. See image below.
The page will load and your new template will be live. See image below.
You can now go back into your WordPress editor page tab, click on the Edit with Thrive Content Builder plugin button again.
This will launch TCB front-end editor in a new tab as before and you can customize the template to your liking.
You can delete the top part of this template as you don’t need it. See below.
That’s it you’re all done. Enjoy!
