If you came across this article and want to know more about finding links or URLs to your Thinkific-made content, you’ve come to the right place! In this article, we’ll guide you through the process of determining and finding links to nearly every Thinkific page that you can share, from course lessons to landing pages, so that you can easily share them with the rest of the world. So, buckle up, and let’s get started!
How To Find Links to Your Thinkific Courses
This section will show you how to find and share the unique link to your Thinkific course content. If you want to share a direct URL to any course lessons with one or multiple students or are planning to add it to different lessons within the same course, this short tutorial can come in handy.
To determine where to find the link to your Thinkific courses, you will need to follow these steps:
1) Log in to your Thinkific account
The first step to finding your Thinkific course link is to log in to your Thinkific account. Simply go to Thinkific.com, enter your login credentials, and you’ll be taken to your Thinkific dashboard once logged in.
2) Find the course you want to share its link to
Click on Courses from the dashboard under the Manage Learning Content section in the top navigation menu, redirecting you to a list of all your courses. Find the course you want to share, and click on its title to open the course page.
Since you are the administrator, not the student, you will immediately be redirected to the Course Builder.
3) Put your course in Preview Mode
Once inside the Course Builder, select Preview on the top-right part of the screen, just under the Build Landing Page button. If you haven’t selected any of the lessons within the course, you are given two options to preview the entire course as follows:
- Preview all course lessons
- Preview the course as an enrolled student
Meanwhile, if you choose a lesson you want to preview within the course, you are given an extra third option to preview it (Preview current lesson) specifically.
All three options will allow you to preview your course material on the Thinkific Course Player as an enrolled student.
4) Find the URL to your Thinkific course or lesson
After clicking on any preview options in the Course Builder and being redirected to the Course Player as a student, you will soon find the link or URL to your chosen course or lesson right on top. Located in the address bar of your web browser is your Thinkific course link.
You can copy the link by simply highlighting, right-clicking, and selecting “Copy.” You can also type in the keyboard shortcut Ctrl+C (PC) or Cmd+C (Mac).
5) Share the URL with your students
With your Thinkific course link copied, you’re ready to paste and share it with others. You can send it to your students, either individually or all at once, via email, social media, or any other platform you prefer. When someone clicks on your Thinkific course link, it’ll take them directly to your course page, where they start learning.
It’s important to consider that this process only applies to students enrolled in your course/s. If you share the link with anyone who still needs to enroll, it will immediately take them to the course’s landing page instead.
How to Find Links to Your Thinkific Site Pages
We have now shown you how to find the link to your Thinkific course material. This time, however, we’ll do the same thing with the website pages that you have made using the same course creation platform.
The following section will demonstrate how to determine the appropriate URLs or links to any of your site pages for you to share them in any way, whether you’re looking to promote your online business or simply send them to your student base.
There are plenty of different pages that make up a Thinkific-made website. Let’s show you how to look out for each of them, one by one.
Finding a Link to a Product Landing Page
1) Log in to your Thinkific account
As soon as you log in to your admin account dashboard, click on either of the product categories under the Manage Learning Products section of the leftmost menu, namely Courses, Bundles, or Memberships.
2) Choose a product you wish to share
Once you click on either category, hover over your preferred product using your mouse cursor. Doing so will reveal a small Share icon on the product card, which you will click on.
3) Copy the link from the Share options provided
After selecting the Share icon for your chosen product, you need to click on the Copy Link option on the last part of the list, just under the social media options (Facebook, Linkedin, Twitter).
4) Paste and share the product link
With the link now copied, you can paste it to the address bar on the top of your preferred internet browser. It will immediately connect to the product’s landing page, and it will usually look like this:
Bonus: Alternative option to finding the landing page link
Another way to search for the landing page for your product is to click on the image card for the course or product itself. Choose one from your library of courses/bundles/memberships to which you want to find the link.
Then, once you’re in the Course Builder, go to the Settings tab. Under the “Course/Bundle/Membership URL” field, you will find the link, which you can copy and paste right away.
Finding Links to Default Site Pages
In Thinkific, default pages refer to pages that are already included in a default website. You can expect to have these types of pages when creating a Thinkific site.
Each default page comes with uniquely assigned URLs that you can always take note of whenever you want to look for one. With that said, the list goes as follows:
If you want to share a direct checkout link for any of your products with those who are interested in buying them, you need to follow these steps to achieve this:
- Go to your admin dashboard, click Manage Learning Products, and choose your preferred product category. You have four options: Courses, Bundles, Memberships, and Communities.
- Once you have found your chosen category, select the image card of the product you want to share the checkout link. Make sure that the product you selected is already published. Otherwise, you will need help to get the direct link.
- Then, click on the Pricing tab from the Course Builder.
- On the right-hand side of the pricing plan you chose for your product, you will find the Copy Link button. Clicking on the button will immediately save the link to the clipboard.
You can now paste and share the direct checkout link with potential students who want to purchase your product. For reference, the direct link should look like this:
Once your customer clicks on the direct link, they will immediately see the following URLs on their browser’s address bar. Take note that you cannot access the links below as an administrator. Doing so will result in a 404 error.

- yoursite.thinkific.com/checkout (for proper checkout payments)
- yoursite.thinkific.com/orders/thankyou/XXXXXXXX (Thank You page)

Finding a Link to a Custom Page
A custom page in Thinkific refers to any page not covered in the list of default website pages. If you create a new site page in the Site Builder for a blog, podcast section, integrations with third-party platforms, and more, you would have already made a custom page.
To find the URL to your custom page, you must follow these steps:
1) Click on your custom page from your dashboard
Select Design Your Site from the admin dashboard, then Site Pages. Choose from any custom pages and click on the Edit icon (a small pencil image). Doing this will redirect you to the Site Builder for your custom page.
2) Find the URL from Settings
Once inside the Site Builder, click on the small Settings icon (represented by a cogwheel) just beside the name of your custom page. A window will pop under the icon, and you will first see basic details such as page name and visibility options.
Beneath the basic settings, you will find a link that says Advanced. By clicking on it, you will find more settings for the page. Scroll down until you see the Page URL field with the “Copy Link” link on the right.
3) Copy and paste the URL to be shared with
Then, click on “Copy Link,” and the link to your custom page will immediately be stored in the clipboard, pasted, and shared with your students and other customers.

Next, go to the Course Builder or Site Builder, depending on which part of your content you want to make changes to, and from the “Settings” tab (Course Builder) or the small cogwheel icon next to the page title (Site Builder). You can change the name of the link.
Doing this means you must immediately inform your students and customers of the changes you have just made to the links.
Can I share my Thinkific link with others?
You can share your Thinkific links with others, including your family and friends. However, some of these URLs are limited to certain groups of people.
