1. I have been using blocksy for all my projects. It has a lot of options which are available in the Free version itself. Moreover, the additional plugin – Blocksy companion helps you get a few more features, like Cookie notice, Author Box, Additional Widgets, Sticky Header etc.

  2. Somehow Hello+Elementor is accepted as “golden standard”, as well as Astra+Elementor.

    Kadence, Blocksy and GeneratePress with their Blocks or/and GreenShift give you almost pagebuilder environment, but with cleaner interface and cleaner generated HTML, without Elementor’s bloat.

    You will not regret using any of them, if you can avoid Elementor.

  3. Blocksy has way more options given to you for free than Astra. Love Blocksy when I don’t need a full builder like Bricks. 

  4. You should give a try to Qi theme (100 templates in free version). Working with Elementor.

  5. Astra and Starter Templates are a great combo. However, for a similar experience, you might want to try the “Hello Elementor” theme, which is specifically designed to work seamlessly with Elementor.
