    Hi, the free version is very limited and very scarce… it only gives you a couple of “professional” templates that serve very little… even the astra pro version is almost as bad as the free version… scarce templates and not at all attractive … also it does not even cover the need of most professionals … it is made so that you can buy them the expensive plans .. agency bundle where it offers you the best they have but which seems to me very expensive respect to what they really offer … there are a thousand better alternatives than them … I am a webmaster with 15 years of experience and with more than 10 years of membership in themeforest, etc.

    Sorry but this template I do not recommend it at all because it really makes you waste precious time when there are much more interesting options on the market … and not subliminal advertising disguised as free as the astra template.

  • Hello @billybrasov,

    Sorry to hear that you aren’t happy with our products.

    However, I’d like to clarify a few things.

    The free Astra theme has all the necessary functions one would look for in a theme to build a website and see many people using it too. We’ve kept Astra simple and 100% customizable so that users get more freedom unlike the themes sold on Themeforest.

    The reason the starter templates available with free Astra theme look simple is that they are built with 100% free resources that come with few features.

    Astra Pro is a plugin that adds many more features and functions to the theme’s customizer. These additional features are premium ones that cost $59 together. You can take a look at the difference between free Astra theme and the Astra Pro addon.

    The Agency tagged templates are built using premium tools and designs. Therefore, giving them just the Astra Pro addon won’t suffice.

    The Mini Agency and Agency Bundles that come with several other plugins that we offer and not just the theme and templates. That is why you see them priced as a bundle.

    We have over 900k+ websites built with Astra and most of them use free Astra only. This itself means that selecting a plan depends on what one needs.

    Furthermore, if you are comparing our plans with those of the themes available on Themeforest, I’d like to mention that we offer unlimited website usage unlike the single website licenses sold on Themeforest.

    Astra works with any page builder of your choice. You can build and design pages with any page builder, including Gutenberg. Most of the themes in Themeforest come with bundled page builders that you often stick to.
