Astra 4.6.6 Updates

Hello folks!

We’re pleased to announce the latest update 4.6.6 for our users! We’ve introduced some exciting stuff, including:

The Optimize Inline CSS option!

When enabled, this option makes your website load only the necessary styles for each page, improving performance. For example, it might skip loading mobile styles if you’re on a desktop.

Find this option under Astra Dashboard > Settings > Performance tab.

We’ve also added a cool new border color option for Transparent Header Buttons.

You can find this option in your Customizer at Appearance > Customize > Transparent Header > Design.

We’ve fixed a few things as well:

  • The menu dropdown arrow icon was missing with Astra Pro enabled and the nav menu addon disabled. It’s back now!
  • Extra padding in the Elementor Archive template & Loop builder has been sorted out.
  • Submenu dropdown arrows weren’t showing up for menu-3 to menu-10 with the nav menu pro addon activated. That’s no longer an issue!
  • The text color for the List block in the Block editor wasn’t behaving. It’s working as expected now!
  • Lastly, we’ve aligned the Next post navigation link properly to the right when the previous post navigation link is absent.

Check out our docs to learn more about these and all of our amazing features.

If you have any questions or need further assistance, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us!

Thank you for your continued support!
