Astra is a highly customizable WordPress theme that has many amazing features.
It’s super lightweight, and the developers say that, with default WordPress data, a website using Astra should load in less than half a second. They’ve taken a number of steps to achieve this, including disabling jQuery and keeping resources under 50kb.
One thing that distinguishes Astra from many other designs is its native support for popular WordPress page builders. It integrates beautifully with page builders such as WPBakery Page Builder (formerly Visual Composer), Beaver Builder, Thrive Architect, Elementor, Divi Builder, Brizy and Gutenberg.
The support for page builders is a major selling point for Astra, as there are many WordPress themes that haven’t been designed with modern page builders in mind. This can result in situations where a stylish page created by a page builder doesn’t fit in well with the activated WordPress theme.
When you activate Astra, a new settings box becomes available when you edit posts, pages and other custom post types. You can change many common page settings here, such as where the sidebar is displayed and whether the content is boxed or full width. Features such as the header, page title, featured image and footer bar can be completely disabled from here.
The great thing about this setup is you can customise how everything looks on a page-by-page basis.
When it comes to design, Astra has you covered. Anyone, regardless of their technical experience, can customise their website design through the WordPress theme customiser.
One problem many WordPress users — including me — sometimes face is that it can be difficult to modify a theme’s design to your liking. This isn’t something to worry about with Astra.
If you activate the Astra Starter Sites plugin, you can import a number of prebuilt website designs.
More than 70 designs are available, and you’ll find prebuilt options for blogs, businesses, online shops, portfolios, and more.
Astra is an amazing theme for bloggers as well as business owners. The kind of flexibility and ease you are getting in this theme in just incredible.
If you buy the pro version of this theme, you get access to the starter sites which are just so amazing to start the basic frame for your blog.
You can easily import them on your website with just one click and then start customizing it as per your needs.
We are giving this theme rating 4.8/5 because this is fast, easily customizable, and following all industry guidelines to start a perfect blog/website.
