    Wow what an sensational story, we adopted Astra as our main theme just over 2 years ago and haven’t looked back.

    To the amazing team and all that have played part in creating Astra, we at Optimise Online love you!

    You have our ongoing support and appreciation and if you’d ever like a testimonial please reach out to me.

    I’m shamelessly referred, Astra to my surroundings. And the story of V2 is really very appealing in a sense that how much you care for us. Wish you good luck. May God allow your team a great success. ?

    We have been using the Astra Business Toolkit for about a month, and all I can say is, “we all love the great features already in Astra Theme” and suddenly we have this great overhaul, I can’t wait to tell my designers about the all new Customizer.
    We were already saving hundreds of hours every month on clients websites, hopefully we can take more work from clients.

    Hi, Sujay. As soon as I received the email that Astra 2.0 has launched I didn’t hesitate and update my site right away. And you know what? IT IS FASTER THAN BEFORE! I love the new Astra!

    I have used a lot of themes in my life. Even bought countless themes from Themeforest. But my site had a very hard time with page loading time.

    Since I moved to Astra, I never had to look back.

    Keep building the awesomeness!

    I have started using Astra for last one year and my experience was great!!
    I think fast loading, optimised and beautiful websites can be produced only with this theme. I thank all and wish all the best for Astra 2.0 a grand success!!!!

    1. Team Astra Profile Pic

      2.0 update should not change anything in frontend as this was majorly a customizer update. Can you open up a ticket so that we can debug this?

  9. Verdi Heinz Profile Pic

    For someone who loves saving time, this theme is awesome. Combined with its versatility and excellent support for Elementor it results in one less thing to worry about when starting a new project: “what theme to use for this specific customer?” Astra just covers them. We’ve been using it since it first came out and instead of adding bloat over time, it actually feels and acts sleeker.

    Well written story Sujay, I read it with a smile 🙂

    Thanks to do that! We choose to start build first shaolin kungfu yanchenwuguan com experience school in China based on Astra theme and we are happy.

  11. Stefano Serra Profile Pic

    In the past, our Italian Web Agency has always used several themes for our customers.

    We had to mess every time with customer requests about styling…

    One year ago we switched everything to Astra and Beaver Builder. Why we did only 1 year ago!!!

    We ❤️ You!

    Thanks for your precious support!

    I am already a happy Astra user. And this update made me more happy. 🙂

    I have been using Astra for a year now and it fits perfect for my every need.

    Loved how you restructured the customizer. It is drastically reducing my work time!

  13. Leo Koo Profile Pic

    Well done, Sujay! Getting onboard Astra Pro and the Business Toolkit is one of the best decisions I’ve ever made in my WordPress career.

    With 2.0 and the upcoming changes, I’m ditching all other themes and moving everything back to Astra Pro. Even WPStarters will be back on Astra 🙂

  14. Sarah Profile Pic

    Hi Sujay! It’s a treat to read Astra’s journey so far. No doubts Astra has changed the traditional way of building websites and set new standards for WordPress themes.

    I must say Astra 2.0 is cherry on the cake!

    A big congratulations to you and your team! Keep it up!

  15. Chas Henry Profile Pic

    Just when I thought It couldn’t get any better you release a mind blowing update. We love Astra in our agency. Combined with Elementor, Astra makes our world so much easier.

    Thank you for all you do for the community.

    Wishing you continued success!

    Outstanding job Sujay and team! I have been using Astra for a year now and found it to be very fast and works great with the native Gutenberg editor for fast builds and very fast page load times. We are excited about the upcoming Astra 2.0 customized and speed enhancements. Keep up the great work!

    AWESOME update!

    This is definitely going to save a lot of time we spend in customizer. Bravo Astra team! You caught our problem right on.

    1. Team Astra Profile Pic

      No! In Astra 2.0, we have restructured the customizer. So it will not impact on the frontend. Astra will work as fast as before on the frontend. 🙂

    Unos grandes profesionales que nos permiten trabajar mejor y más rápido. ¡Muchas gracias por intentar llegar un paso más allá en cada actualización!

    The Customize scrollbar is almost totally un-usable now. Astra made the scrollbar too thin. And, also, the target area to actually click the mouse onto the scrollbar is now only 1 or 2 pixels wide. It makes attempting to click and scroll the scrollbar in Customize almost impossible – and very frustrating. I’ve since moved on to another theme because this UX/UI so frustrating.

    Put the Customize scrollbar back to the default normal WordPress width.

    1. Team Astra Profile Pic

      Apologies for the inconvenience, We have increased the size of the scroll bar in the upcoming version of Astra, v2.1.0 which will be released in a few days.

    Thanks for sharing such a powerful insight into the WordPress Astra 2.0 theme! This is undoubtedly helping people too who are new in WordPress. As well as this is a very helpful post for me. Thanks for sharing!

    Great news guys, great theme and good to hear of some big improvements. Would love to see a bit more on menu options and mobile
    Menu improvements, overlays, styling, animated hamburgers etc, just to make those more modern. Good work

    1. Team Astra Profile Pic
