Getting just the right look in WordPress can be one of the most challenging parts of your website.

In This Post

Between all the themes and the different options that they all provide and all the different page builders; there are so many choices! If you know you want to use a page builder, and want a theme that will work flawlessly with different ones, I recommend you check out the free Astra theme or paid Astra Pro theme. Then step it up, with Astra Starter Sites start with a full site and modify to your heart’s content!

Astra Theme

The Astra theme offers a robust, fast, SEO ready theme that is coded to the highest quality standards of WordPress. Astra uses the customizer as a place to set up basic features for the theme and works with several different page builders really well. These include especially, Beaver Builder, Elementor, Brizzy, and Gutenburg (Yes! with addons Gutenburg can be pretty powerful too!)

Customizer settings for the Astra theme.
In the Astra options, there are links to customizer settings for options like logo, fonts, headers, and colors.

Astra Starter Sites

What really makes Astra shine against other great themes that work with page builders, is an additional plugin called Astra Starter Sites. With this plugin, you can import 90+ completely set up sites that work with a preselected builder. Astra provides a stunning library of pre-built websites. Instead of designing a website from scratch you can import Astra Starter Sites with few clicks and customize them in your own way.
