    great feature. Can widgets be added to the footer? I would love to be able to set the footer to have 2, 3, or 4 columns and put in text, html, or widgets.

    Great starter theme – congrats!!

      Hi Rich, Thank you for the compliments. As for your question: more widget areas in the footer would be included as a part of premium addon package for Astra. If you have not yet in our Facebook group, I would encourage you to join so you will know when it’s launched.

    Hello. Would you consider adding widget support for the body? I’d like to add a small banner right above my blog posts and there’s no way I can do it without editing ‘index.php’. Problem is, every time there’s an Astra update, I have to copy/paste the banner code.

    Thanks in advance.
