"Which is the best theme for Thrive Architect?" Amit Singh asked this question the first question in the Thrive Themes Pricing article (published on GPressTheme).
Recently, I have received another comment by Randeep Kaler on GeneratePress examples asking, "can I use Thrive Content Builder with any WordPress theme?". Below are the screenshots of both explanations.
What do you think, this makes sense that I have to write a list post on Thrive Architect compatible themes or not?
Of course, it does. Then here it is...!
By the way, Thrive Content builder has compatibility with hundreds, even thousands of free and premium WordPress themes. But we need the best theme to use with Thrive Architect.
So, in this WP Blogging 101 tutorial, I will be sharing the list of top 5 WordPress themes, which will help you to pick the best theme for Thrive Architect in 2020.
But before I proceed to the main topic, let me show you what is Thrive Architect and what it's benefiting? Ready to dive..? Let's go!
What is Thrive Architect?
Thrive Architect is a conversion-focused WordPress landing page builder plugin, developed by Thrive Themes. With the help of this tool, you can convert your boring pages into nice-looking content layouts.

5 best themes to use with Thrive Architect in 2020
When I was collecting Thrive Architect themes list, I had visited some websites. I noticed they have suggested official Thrive Themes use with this plugin. But I am not adding into this list, as they have already stopped providing WordPress themes. Here is the official link and below screenshot take from thrivethemes.com.
You can subscribe to their Thrive Membership to use other great tools like Thrive Leads, Thrive Comments, Thrive Quiz Builder etc.
So, now it's clear that this doesn't make sense that I add them into my compatible Thrive Architect themes list. Now, look at the below list of the best WordPress themes for Thrive Architect plugin.
1. GeneratePress (recommended)
GeneratePress (review) is a multi-purpose FREEMIUM WordPress theme by Tom Usborne. The core version is enough to get excellent design. However, the pro version technically a plugin named GP Premium. Here is the comprehensive breakdown between GeneratePress free and GP Premium.
I highly recommend GeneratePress, as I found it very best theme in my four-year blogging career. Before, I was using Genesis from StudioPress. But in December 2018, I moved to GeneratePress during the Black Friday sale.
Yes WP Blogging 101 blog is powered by GeneratePress Pro theme. And this article is written using Thrive Architect plugin. That helps you understand, how amazing post layouts you can create with GP theme.
After using this theme, I had shared my honest experience by comparing GeneratePress & Genesis Framework.
2. WP Astra
If you have spent a good time as a WordPress blogger, then you might be heard about WP Astra theme. It is a freemium (free & premium) theme, which is built considering for loading speed, elegant design, SEO and more accessible customization options.
Looking at WPastra theme compatibility, this could be a great theme to use Thrive Architect, especially when you are looking for a landing page builder to establish a website design the way you think.
WPastra comes in two variants, free and premium. The free version has excellent features when you need a simple but beautiful looking website design. But if you want some incredible layouts that attract readers attention then, I recommend you go for WP Astra Pro.
Moreover, with Astra Agency Plan, you will get Ultimate Addons For Elementor, Ultimate Addons For Beaver Builder, Convert Pro, Schema Pro, WP Portfolio plugins worth $500+ free.
OceanWP is yet another great theme to use with Thrive Architect. Though it owns 90% similarities of GeneratePress and the main advantage is to pick this is that you can buy it at a one-time cost for lifetime usage.
With 2,00,000+ downloads, OceanWP has earned 2900+ 5-star ratings by happy users. It has recorded itself the fastest-growing theme in the WordPress themes industry. That's the main reason why I added it into this Thrive Architect themes listing.
Looking at pricing and plans, OceanWP also comes in two variants, free and premium. The free version is available free to download on oceanwp.org and wordpress.org. And the paid version is an additional extension for the core theme, starting at the price of $39 only.
4. Genesis Framework
Since discovering Genesis back in 2010, I'm proud to say that I've built my first website with Genesis Framework + Authority Pro child theme. I am currently using GeneratePress, as I found it more relevant to my business.
Genesis Framework and StudioPress all child themes are now fully responsive with mobile devices. After the recent updates, this framework used to be great, even really getting better and better in every update.
StudioPress has made plenty over changes in 2020. That's the reason; Genesis is the another best theme for Thrive Architect to build even more stunning website landing pages and layouts within minutes.
Schema is the most selling WordPress theme on MyThemeShop (MTS). The primary reason behind is its loading speed, SEO-optimization and mobile-responsiveness.
Like GeneratePress, WP Astra & OceanWP themes, Schema also comes into free and premium versions. The free version is going to be great for simple website design.
But to use with Thrive Architect, I recommend you go for the paid version as it includes ads management system, easy import/export functionality, built-in-review widget, rich-snippets, unlimited backgrounds, integrated social media etc.
