Please note that our Legacy Themes have been replaced by new Thrive Theme Builder Themes. While our Legacy Themes are still functional, we are no longer actively developing them. Instead of the "Call to Action" widget, you can now use the "Call to Action" element, with the same functionalities.
This widget will display a headline, image, text and a button. It's a great way to get visitor attention to a specific offer or page on your site.
In your WordPress admin dashboard go to Appearance, and click on Widgets:
Look for the "Thrive Call-to-Action Widget" in the list that appears on screen, and drag and drop it into the desired widget area. You will see the following options:
This is the default title field which is available for all widgets in WordPress. In most themes, the text you enter here is hidden on the front-end since it would conflict with the widget headline.
This setting determines the color style of the widget.
3) Headline Text
This is the main headline shown in this widget.
This is the body text shown in the widget. Keep it relatively short. One or two sentences with a clear call to action is what we recommend.
5) Custom Image
Here, you can upload an image that will be shown inside the widget. This is an optional setting.
6) Button Text
This field determines the text that will be shown on the button.
7) Button Link
This is where the visitor will be directed to, when they click the button. Enter the full URL including the "http://" part in this field.
8) Open Link In
Set this to "New Tab" if you want the target link to open in a new browser tab for your visitors. We recommend that you use the "New Tab" setting only for external links, which take your visitors away from your own website.
9) Thrive Widget Display Options
Use this form to set when your widgets will be displayed.
Here's what the widget with the above settings looks like in FocusBlog, so you can see how the fields correspond to the end result:
