Change from AffiloTheme to Thrive Leads Signup Forms

The Thrive plugin is a powerful Wordpress plugin that comes free on websites hosted on AffiloJetpack Hosting. You can create fancy squeeze pages and opt-in forms using this tool. You can access the Thrive tutorials on the AffiloJetpack help page under the "Using Thrive plugins" sub-heading.

Before creating new forms using Thrive, make sure to remove all default sidebar forms and opt-in forms from your website. We recommend watching the video How to change from AffiloTheme to Thrive Leads signup forms, or you may follow the below steps:

  1. Go to Thrive Leads > Dashboard on your Wordpress Dashboard. Please note that if this is your first time accessing the Thrive Dashboard, you may need to click on the green "Thrive Dashboard" button on the page that comes up. Then, select the Thrive Leads Dashboard on the page that comes up.

  2. Create a Lead Group by clicking on the “Add New” button next to it. A Lead Group determines which Pages and Posts an opt-in form or a squeeze page will appear on.

  11. Edit the form. You can save the changes or preview it first by clicking the same buttons on the top of the right sidebar.
  12. After saving, you can then click the 'X' button to exit out or close out that page. Clear your browser's cache and then visit the pages or posts where you indicated the forms to appear. If you created a sidebar form, you need to go to Appearance > Widgets and drag the Thrive Widgets to the sidebar. Select the name of your Thrive lead, and click the Save button. This will save any sidebar opt-in forms you created on Thrive to the sidebar of your website.

Always save any changes and make sure to clear your browser's cache before viewing the website again.
