Is Forge Content editor the right Thrive Content Builder Alternative?

Both editors may have their differences but at the end, you are going to get pretty much the same results.

Thrive builder doesn’t give you extensions. All it has is bundled in the core product at the price that some think is expensive.

I have also linked to different Forge pages above so you should do thorough investigation before coming to a final decision. Forge core is free so you may want to get it installed and try it out before buying any extension.

  1. Hello Enstine,
    I never used content builder till now. But recently i have purchased the Bridge theme,there is a content builder over there too but one thing i noticed after working on the same page it gets slower a lot which even takes like 30+ to load . Is there any solution to make this faster?

  2. Good one!

    This will surely help every WordPress blogger to manage their WP blog more efficiently and easily than ever! Thanks for sharing ?

  4. I know that if any website have great deign and layout, it can attract a loot of visitor.
    But a good content also help to earn more traffic if it relevant on topic.But a perfect site need also good deign,layout and relevant content.Your think is right.

  5. This sounds like something i should look more into as the wordpress editor is so plain. Great review. Must check it out soon. I also like that its full compatible with every single WordPress template

  6. Hey, enstine

    Good review about forge content builder

    This tool helps a newbie bloggers who don’t want to invest some bucks into thrive content builder.

    Thank you for making such superb review

  7. Hey Enstine,

    Good one!

    This will surely help every WordPress blogger to manage their WP blog more efficiently and easily than ever! Thanks for sharing 🙂

  8. Hi Enstine,

    This is a really cool alternative, although I did buy Thrive Content on your recommend and I’m loving it. I think what’s especially nice about Forge is it’s free version. That will certainly get a lot more folks to give it a whirl – IMHO.

    Bottom line… WP is wonderful, but we all know it’s basic and no frills. Content enhancers like Thrive and Forge give you an opportunity to showcase your messages (blog posts) in more interesting and varied ways.

    Hey, it’s all about rising above the crowd, right? WP plugins like these are tailor made to help you do exactly that. It’s what makes WP so flexible and powerful, so we need to take advantage when we see great add-ons like these.


    • I’m glad to hear you are enjoying what you bought. Makes me really excited to know what I recommended did not waste your time 😉

      WordPress is the magic of Internet. That’s how I call it. It keeps evolving, giving us enough room to create anything.

      Let’s see how it goes in the next 5 years 😉

      have a wonderful week Donna and thanks for making it hear today

  9. Thanks Enstine for the amazing post on alternatives of thrive content builder.
    Nice post. Really, the most informative post it is although, all post of yours are having a lot of information.
    Great work.

  10. Hey Enstine,

    That seems a nice alternative, I don’t think there’s anything that can stop me from trying this.
    Keep on bringing these kind of things to us 😉


  11. Hey Enstine,

    I have read few of your earlier articles on Thrive content builder and found the tool handy. However, the whole lot of features of this new Forge content Builder is overwhelming. And the best part is, the editor is free. Thanks for sharing about this Thrive content builder alternative.

    • Hi Maidipa,
      So good to have you here and thanks for being a repeat reader.
      Always excited each time I hear from you and thanks again for your beautiful comment.

      Do give forge a try and if possible, join the affiliate program and promote it 😉

      Have a wonderful week ahead

  12. Hi Enstine,
    Great information. I checked on a few alternatives to Thrive Content Builder myself but I don’t think this was one of them. The ones I tested did not seem to do the job very well. I should have made a post about them but didn’t.

    I will test this one out. I love the idea of having more control over the look on WordPress but hate to have to fight a plugin for it.

    • Hello Monna,
      There are many of these builders out there but just a few can stand what users want.
      Having tested Forge completely, I think it’s on the list of top builders.

      Given Manuel’s activeness in adding more to it, looks like one day this will be topping the list 😉

      Do have a wonderful weekend and thanks for adding your voice

  13. Hi Enstine,

    Goodness, you are a font of knowledge when it comes to tech tools. This one also looks good. I like the modular approach – only buy the functionality you need.

    I already have Thrive installed and happy with it. But if I was starting again I would seriously look at this new option

    Thanks muchly for bringing us valuable information on productivity enhancing tools

    • Hi Kim,
      Thanks for the beautiful words 😉

      So many people have the single site license of TCB. I think this comes in as a good option for them if they have more than one blog.

      Thanks again for being part of the conversation

  14. Hello Bro.

    I see you have us covered on content builders. It’s great I have all these info. at my disposal.

    And to have a boost in our conversion rates, these content builders are the only option.

    Thanks bro. Trying Forge is a must.


  15. Hey Enstine,

    Nice one you’ve got here. Forge seems nice to me. But just as Abdul have said, limiting it to just one site isn’t all that cool. However, I’m going to try out the free version, then perhaps go for the premium version soon.

    Thanks for sharing

  16. This is really cool. I think it is a great idea we only get to pay for what we plan to use the only short coming i see is limiting it to one or two websites

    • Hi Abdul, thanks for your thoughts! I am the creator of Forge.

      Regarding pricing, I know buying extensions for unlimited sites can be expensive. However, the extensions are not locked down or ask for any kind of license. We wanted to set it up so that agencies benefit the most from it, having to manage a lot of sites and keeping things updated. But at the same time, the idea is to make it all very accessible. 🙂

  17. Hi Enstine,

    I just had a look at the content builder and looks so amazing. It is a cheaper alternative to Thrive Content builder.

    Thanks for sharing it. Just downloaded the free version. Will use it on a new website.

    • Glad you liked it Tauseef! Just wanted to mention that the builder is meant to be very extensible. Hopefully, we can release some interesting extensions soon, like automated AB testing or tracking user behavior.

  18. Hi Enstine,

    I am using Thrive Content builder for one of my blogs, and Forge is also looking fine and looks like a good alternative for Thrive builder.

    This is the first time I hearing about this Forge content builder, thanks for sharing the information about this alternative for Thrive, see you soon.

    • Hi Madhavi,

      Glad you liked it! To be fair, we are just getting started– the plugin was released in November! But the plan is to make it into a very versatile tool.

      I know Thrive is very powerful, but it is also too focused on marketing at times. Forge, on the other had, is meant to serve as a general web design builder. You won’t necessarily need to make a landing page with it 🙂

    • Hello Madhavi,
      Good to hear from you.
      You know you can try out Forge for free. I’m sure you will find it an amazing tool 😉

      Did you check out Manuel’s reply to your comment?
