From Custom Layouts to Full Site Builder

Astra has always been known for allowing you to easily modify many parts of your website.

The Custom Layouts Pro module was one of the tools to help you accomplish this.

From Astra 4.5 onwards this module will be rebranded as Site Builder.

This better reflects its true power and paves the way for more tools and features to be included in future updates.

With the new Site Builder it will be easier than ever to create, design and manage custom website elements.

  • Header
  • Footer
  • 404 page
  • Search pages
  • Inside post/page content blocks
  • Custom templates for
    • Single
    • Archive

The cool thing about these custom elements is that you can set different display, device and user role visibility rules.

You can even set start and end times for your custom layouts visibility, thus making your website truly dynamic and versatile.

From the WordPress Admin Panel > Astra > Site Builder you’ll find now a sidebar where you can quickly access all the different website parts that you can design.
