Astra Theme detailed Review: Is It The Best WordPress Theme?

With an impressive distinction, Astra is the most popular non-default WordPress theme of all time. It is the first and only non-default theme with over 1 million active installs on, with a perfect 5-star rating out of about 5,000 user reviews. Having said all that – a lot of people love Astra. And – spoiler alert – I’m one of them, so this will be an overall positive Astra theme review, although I’ll highlight some areas where the other themes are slightly better. To help you understand why I and many others love Astra, I’m going to split this review into two parts. First, I’ll look at seven areas where Astra stands out from the competition. These areas are:
  1. Lightweight performance
  2. Multipurpose design
  3. Over 150 importable homepages
  4. Detailed WordPress Customizer Controls
  5. Compatibility with other WordPress plugins
  6. Powerful custom layout
  7. capabilities for advanced users
