You can easily set up and customize the page where your visitors can log in to your Thrive Apprentice courses. Here are the steps you should follow in order to set up the "Login Page":
1. Access the Display Section
First, you need to access the Thrive Apprentice "Display". To do that, click on the "Display" section from the upper right corner of your Thrive Apprentice dashboard:
Then click on the "Edit Login Page" section from the drop-down that opens:
This will open the page where you can set up/add and customize your Login Page:
2. Add Login Page
There are two ways in which you can add the Login Page: you can either create a new page and add that one, or you can choose to add one of your existing pages as your"Login Page here.
a) Add an already existing page:
If you want to use one of your existing pages as your Login Page, click in the search box from the "Set your Login Page" section:
Then, type in the title of the page that you have previously created, and want to use here, as your Login Page. A drop down will appear with the relevant pages as results, based on the name/term you have searched for.
Select the page you want to use from the drop-down by clicking on it:
In a matter of seconds, the page you have selected will be added as a Login Page.
b) Create a new page:
If instead of using an already existing page, you want to create a new page and use it as your Login Page, then click on the “Create a new page” option, which is under the search box:
A new section will appear where you can create and add the new page. First enter a title for the Login Page, in the "Page title" field:
Then, simply click on the "Add Page" button from this section:
In a couple of seconds, your new page will be created and added as your Login Page.
3. Edit/Customize the Login Page
Once you have added the Login Page, you will see three options appear on its right side:
- You can use the "View" option to preview the Login Page anytime. All you have to do is to click on the option and the page will open in another tab.
- The "Remove page" option allows you to delete the current Login Page, and then add a different one instead. If you want to do this, click on the "Remove page" option and confirm that you want to delete the page. This way the "Login Page" will be deleted.
The most important option here, however, is the "Edit with Thrive Architect" one. The next step after adding a Login Page is customizing it, and this is what you can do with the help of this option.
Click on the "Edit with Thrive Architect" option:
This will open the page in a different tab, in the "Thrive Architect" editor. There you will be able to customize the Login Page using Thrive Architect.
- Thrive Architect users
If you have already purchased and used the Thrive Architect plugin, then this will be easy for you. You can edit and customize this page the same way you would edit/customize any other page in Thrive Architect.
The only difference is that here you will have the new "Login Form" element added by default to the page. Besides customizing the page itself, you can also customize this element.
To customize the "Login Form" element, first click on it to select it:
Then, you will see its options in the left sidebar:
You can use these options to customize the new element.
Please keep in mind that the "Login Form" element is essential for the Login Page. Without it, users will not be able to log in and view your Thrive Apprentice courses.
This is why you should not delete the "Login Form" element from your page. Or in case you do delete it, make sure to add it again, from the list of available elements.
- Users who have not used Thrive Architect before
Even if you did not purchase Thrive Architect, in this instance, you will have the possibility to edit and customize your Login Page with it. You will notice that using Thrive Architect is easy because of its drag & drop interface.
First of all, you will see that the "Login Form" element has been added automatically to the page. This is needed, in order to give your users a way to log in and view your courses. You can customize this element, by clicking on it, and using its left sidebar options, just as described above.
Furthermore, you can also customize the other aspects of your Login Page. You can add new elements to the page, by clicking on the plus sign from the right sidebar and dragging & dropping the elements to the desired place on the page.

Login Landing Page Templates
If you want an even quicker way to have a nice-looking Login Page, you can use one of the Login Landing Page Templates that are available, while editing your Login Page.
In order to use one of these landing page templates, click on the “Change Template” option (the second one) from the right sidebar:
This will open a pop-up with the available template sets:
Click on any of the template sets to open it and see the Login Landing Page Templates that it contains. Then, click on the template you want to use, in order to select it. Once the template is selected, click on the "Choose Template", button from the bottom right corner of the pop-up:
This way, the new Login Landing Page Template will be applied to your Login Page.
Note: Please keep in mind that whenever you apply a template to your Login Page, the changes that you have previously made on the page will be lost.
This is why we recommend selecting a suitable Login Landing Page Template before you start adding new elements and customizing the Login Page altogether.
Once the template is applied to the page, you can customize it to your liking, and make it uniquely suited for your website.
When you have finished editing/customizing the Login Page, don't forget to save your work, using the "Save Work" button, from the bottom-left part of the editor:
Then, your Login Page will be all set up, and you can go back to the Thrive Apprentice dashboard to continue creating your courses.
