Review of Thrive Themes Content Builder Plug-In

Hello there, you perfectionist with a WordPress website and not enough experience to make it pretty.

If you’ve been pulling your hair out trying to add boxes and buttons and otherwise fancy up your site, this recently released content builder plugin from Thrive Themes may be just the thing for you.

I’ve been paying around with it for a bit, and while it does have some flaws I think it’s worth investigating for practitioners who are building their own WordPress sites.

Here’s my video review:

You can learn more on the about this plugin from Thrive Themes here.  One downside is that you can’t use it to edit existing posts without starting over from scratch. This also means that you’ll need to use the plugin forever if you want to maintain visual consistency in your posts. Frankly it’s easy enough to use that this might not be a problem ;).  Head on over and have a look. Let me know what you think.

  • I’ve used a lot of WordPress plugins and there aren’t many that make me go “wow” but this one did.

    When I first started out with WordPress I only went with free sites and plugins. In the past few years I have bought quite a number of premium themes and have started picking up some premium plugins too. I think the key is that they’re priced right. This one is, in my opinion.

    Thanks for the review!

    • Great to hear, Alain. I’m glad you think this one is worth it, too. I agree that the price seems reasonable based on the amount of time it will save!

  • Can you use the existing WP editor to edit a post, or are you forced into using this for everything after you install it?

    I’m thinking about restricting it to only our promotions/sales staff and not our news staff or bloggers (I work at a radio station).

    • Hi Dave – You can use either the existing WordPress editor OR this plugin for any given post/page. However you can’t use both at the same time. Hope that helps. I’m sure it would be more useful for the sales staff than it would for the news staff & bloggers, although I can think of several ways they might use it as well.
