Support » Theme: Astra » Frustrating

  • I installed this theme because it was highly recommended by Tyler Moore in his video. Much to my dismay many of the default font colors are completely unreadable and I am unable to change them. Many options are not even customizable unless you purchase the pro version. As a person returning to the hobby of website building I am very disappointed. This has made the process very frustrating. When I find a better theme I will come back here and recommend it for others who might also be fed up with making this work.

    Most of my frustrations have been learning a new way of web editing which, while easier after you learn all the machinations behind it’s convolution can be very complicated to someone who is not accustomed to it. I can see now how this is much easier than the old way of describing everything manually and it’s much nicer to avoid duplicating your work. This theme in particular has been very useful and now that I am learning more about how things work I am thankful that I elected to choose this one.

    Also note:
    I am a completely freelance, read:not business related, user of this product. Any attempts to sell services for creating logos, doing custom artwork, or web editing will be completely ignored as I am doing this all myself for the sheer, ahem, enjoyment of the process. There is no revenue generated by my website, nor do I intend it to be for that purpose. Solicitation for such will be a waste of your time and mine.

  • Hello @ladro9hands,

    I am Elvina from team Brainstorm Force, the makers of the Astra theme. I am sorry to hear that you aren’t too happy with the theme and here’s what I’d like to say.

    Regarding the font colors, you can definitely manage them through the Global color settings. Go to Global -> Colors in the customizer. This should make it easier for you. 🙂

    The free Astra theme is made with all the necessary options and settings that one needs on the website. We’ve kept that minimal to avoid any extra bloat on websites where people may not need any advanced and additional features.

    Astra Pro is an addon that gives users access to these advanced features that some people may need.

    It is still possible to create complete websites using the free Astra theme. Our free website templates (Starter Templates) are an example of this.

    I completely understand your frustration and would advise you to try our Starter Templates that can be imported and used to build websites in just a few clicks.

    I am sure that will make things easier and you happier. 🙂

    Feel free to get in touch if you need help with anything.
