This article will show you how you can load a landing page template on a newly created page as well as on an already existing page from your website. Furthermore, you will also find out how to access the blank landing pages templates, in case you want to start working on your page from scratch.
Loading a Landing Page on a New Page
First, in your WordPress admin dashboard, hover over the "Pages" section and click on "Add new":
Next, give your page a title and publish it if you want:

Loading a Blank Landing Page Template
Moving forward, if you want to build your page from scratch, then it's worth mentioning here that you can do that as well.
If you are still in the Thrive Architect editor, on your currently selected landing page template, simply click on the gear "Change Template" icon from the right sidebar:
This will take you once more to the template library, in this library, head over to the "Legacy Landing Page" section and look for the "Blank" set of pages:
As simple as that, you can replace your currently active template with a completely blank one.
Loading a Landing Page on an Existing Page
If you already have an existing page, and you just want to transform it into a landing page, you can achieve that in several easy steps.
All you have to do is to follow the above-mentioned steps for changing the template of your page.
While you are editing your page with Thrive Architect, first access the “Change Template” option from the right sidebar:
From the pop-up that opens, select "Pre-built Landing Page":
At this stage, you will be informed that applying a new template on your already existing page will remove all the custom content that you've added so far.

All templates from here are created to serve a very specific purpose. You might be looking for a "Thank You Page", or a "Homepage", "Webinar Page", "Application Page" and so on. Simply browse the library, and look for the one that you need.
After you've found the right page template, simply click on it and then click on "Apply Template":

Revert to Theme Page
In case for some reason, you want to revert your page to the initial page you had before loading the landing page template, you can use the “Revert to Theme” option.
You can find this in the right sidebar if you access the “Landing Page Settings” section of the "Settings" menu:
After you have accessed it, you just have to click on the “Revert to Theme” option to change your page back to the initial theme page with the initial content:
Note: Please keep in mind that if you use this option and revert the page to the theme page, then, you will lose the custom content that you have added to the page while the landing page template was loaded on it.
