In this video and explain what Astra Sites
is and how you can use it to build a beautiful website as painless Lee as possible as pain-free
as possible in the shortest amount of time hi my name is Adam up from WPCrafter.com where
I release a total content around WordPress to help you get better results faster and
that is exactly what Astra sites is an Astra sites does so here is the Astra website it’s
essentially a high performance a free WordPress theme that is available right now for you
now what they’ve done know is they’ve created an additional plug-in called Astra Sites that
is also free and it’s going to allow you with just a few mouse clicks to have the most beautiful
website for you all pretty much done you just have to tweak the logo here in a little bit
of text here and you really have built a beautiful website for yourself in the shortest amount
of time here is what those websites that are currently available look like animal to show
you here but in a moment we can actually go into a fresh WordPress installation and put
this to work so here are the templates not the first thing is you can toggle between
the page builder of choice there are two very popular page builders Beaver Builder in Elementor
and you can toggle between the websites available for each page builder a lot of these websites
will be available for both though so it’s right here I have Beaver Builder selected
and we can scroll down and see these beautifully designed websites that are ready in one mouseclick
and we can keep scrolling down now here’s the thing these are more then just website
demos these I’ve seen website demos before these are not like those these are really
designed for specific purposes in their pretty much already ready to go I’ve seen a lot of
website demos and they just they give you an idea of what you can do but they’re not
necessarily practical for real-world application this is the opposite these are websites that
are 100% practical for real-world application so we have these in various designs here for
Beaver Builder Dominus scroll up and I’m in a click right here where it says Elementor
now there are a variety of website designs here for you to choose from now some of them
are marked as premium in the premium designs are only available in the Astra agency packages
that you can optionally purchase and the difference between these designs and the other designs
is these ones are leveraging some of the pro features of Astro that you only get through
purchasing the optional add-on professional version it’s purely optional the free ones
that use the free theme are amazing these are just a little bit more you can see primarily
with these three ones right here you see that beautiful transparent header being use and
that’s one of the power features of the Pro version of Astra so we have these designs
here as well using Elementor for WordPress now you can come here and you can click on
any of these say for example this right here this pet services website I can click on quick
view and it’s going to pull up the entire website right here and I can look at it and
decide if that is what I want and you can see these are just one page websites these
are multiple page websites fully created and ready for you and him to go ahead and you
can click on this X here on the bottom right to collapse that here’s a quick look at one
of their more recent premium website templates on the click on the quick view here and this
is really unique it’s actually a website for a web design studio that might be making and
selling these Astra Sites this is just beautifully and masterfully designed right here okay so
enough of me showing let me actually show you this in practice so if I go right here
first thing you’re going to want to do is install Astra so we go to appearance and then
themes we will click add new and where it says search themes were going to just type
the word Astra is going to pull up the Astra Theme right here now this thumbnail image
may change it when you are actually doing this but as long as it says aster right here
it’s the right theme go ahead and click on install it’s just going to take a moment it’s
gonna download this to your website and then go ahead and click on the activate button
so the first step is already done next step is go to plug-ins click on add new in order
to do the same thing working to search for the word Astra now there are a variety of
plug-ins that Astro is made for free and added here these are plug-ins to add custom fonts
to your website do have some advanced developer tools like hook areas but what work when I’m
in a do right now is just install Astra Sites light to click on in stall now now if you
were someone that has the agency package there is a plug-in that you actually pay for to
unlock the ability to install those premium templates that I talked about so many go ahead
and click on activate here and now that is activated so step two done now go to appearance
and we have this new option right here that’s is Astra Sites when go ahead and click on
that and here is pretty much that same view that we were just looking at but now the right
here in your website here’s the toggle between Beaver Builder and Elementor based templates
over the page builders so why don’t I go with a Beaver Builder template right now and there’s
also some sorting options right here to maybe hope you find what you’re after quicker though
on the scroll down and choose a template for me I think I’m in a go ahead and choose that
pet template right here for a pet services to be perfect for dog walker veterinarian
or anything like that so I can also preview it if I wanted to so many click on details
and preview it’s going to pull the template up here in the right now all I need to do
is click this one button here that says install plug-ins know what this is doing is this is
going to go ahead and install and activate all the blocks and plug-ins that you need
in order to make this beautiful website some to click on install plug-ins and it’s going
to just simply install these few plug-ins ones gonna be Beaver Builder one is good to
be ultimate add-ons for Beaver Builder that’s going to extend Beaver Builder a contact form
plug-in and that’s in a power the various contact forms and then there is a widget bundle
and that’s what used to add the button in the header there it’s just mind-boggling to
me though that were getting all of this for free so far I’ve only done it three different
things I installed the theme I install the plug-in and then I clicked this one button
choosing this website so now that these four plug-ins are downloaded and activated all
I have to do is click on import this site now you want to do this on a fresh installation
of WordPress if you do it on a existing site it’s going to cause maybe some problems to
that existing site so here is this morning just to let you know that I’m a go ahead and
click on okay now this is going to take just another moment or two it’s going to configure
the menus for you it’s can and can just going to configure everything for you contact forms
were all that you’re going to have to do that’s left is use the page builder in order to change
these bits of text to change the images look it’s already done and all of that sum to go
ahead and click done view site right here it’s now opened it up in a new tab where I’m
in a be able to view the website and here it is you can see the admin bar as I’m logged
into WordPress I now have a beautiful website were all I have to do is change a little bit
of text and change a few images and it’s perfectly designed just for me and here’s an example
we have all of these different pages of content so I can click on and get in touch right here
and it’s all installed and ready to go and when I look here there’s a beautifully designed
contact form and I didn’t pay anything for this this was all included all done for free
pulling the best tools for WordPress together all configured for you professionally designed
and there for you this is the fastest way to have a website that is practical something
you can use right away this is the best way to do it and if you are only ready for the
free version of Astra and one of these templates now that’s fine later if you wanted to add
some transparent headers or you wanted to add some of the numerous features that we
have available right here for Astra Pro sticky headers pay a dynamic page headers control
over all of the colors that the website has more topography options on all of these various
options when you’re ready for this you can just come to the website purchasing and easily
added to your site when you are ready now you have to agree there is no easier way to
have a practical website within five minutes and this was actually much less than five
minutes now obviously you need to spend maybe 2030 minutes changing out text and images
but you would have to agree there is no easier way to get a beautiful website right now then
